God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible.
We're not.
And that's a good thing.
Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone.
Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God's limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.

My take on this book:
None Like Him by Jen Wilkin is written in an easy to understand manner that takes on the issue of how we are not like God and that's okay, more than okay really, it's how God made us. What that statement really means is that sometimes we try to strive to be like God but that really is impossible, instead we need to allow our lives to reflect God's great goodness in us, but to do that we must learn how to let God take the lead.

 This book touches on ten attributes that are truly of God. Page twenty-four of this book really grabbed my attention. The author provided two lists the first list is truly of God and the second list is what we can achieve once the Holy Spirit dwells in us. As I read these lists I began to realize that reflecting who God is can be an achievable goal. As we grow in our spiritual walk we can show attributes that reflect God for his glory. This book is really user friendly, each chapter addresses a different attribute that only God possesses. The stories that the author shares are personal and very easy to relate to. Each chapter includes verses for meditation, and questions for reflection and ends with encouragement for the user to write a prayer. Personally I have been using this book as a devotional, but because it is geared toward women I think that it would be perfect as a group study. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
