In His Image: 10 Ways God Calls Us to Reflect His Character Reviews
This book is fantastic. Highly recommend!
“In His Image” is a study of 10 of God’s communicable attributes and how we should strive to reflect His character in these ways. It is a follow-up to her 2016 book “None Like Him” which does the same with 10 incommunicable attributes. This books starts with the attribute of holiness and that everything we do either illuminated or obscures the character of God therefore we must strive to become more like Him and therefore grow in Holiness! My very favorite chapters were those on justice (God’s J ...more

Many of us have asked: What is God’s will for my life? What should I do? In her book, Jen Wilkin turns these questions around and asks: Who should I be? Using ten attributes of God, she shows how the Bible is actually very clear about the will of God for our lives. We should look more and more like the One who made us and formed us into His image.
One of the highlights of this book is the reflection sect ...more

"God's truth is communal, given not merely so that the individual can live in right relationship to God, but so that the individual can live in right relationship with others."I had never heard of or read anything from Jen Wilkin before I decided to request this book, but I'm glad I went ahead with it as this has been an interesting read.
This book was surprisingly short. I managed to blaze through it in half a day and I don't even scan read. Honestly I thin ...more
This is the best book I’ve read in a long time. The goal of the book is to know God and allow him to make us more like Him. Wilkin gently but firmly guides the reader to know more about Gods character and challenges us to desire to reflect that character. Very practical. The application side of the book is fabulous. Wilkin has such a great way of saying it like it is but in a loving way. EVERYTHING is backed by scripture. This is not fluff. It is deep and meaty. I read it slowly so I could chew ...more
I’ve heard a lot about Jen Wilkin and her books on social media, so I was really excited when I saw this book was available on Crossway’s blogger program for review! (I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)
This book is short— less than 200 pages— but it’s packed full of deep scriptural insight. You will learn so much. Jen Wilkin is straight forward and easy to understand. She doesn’t water down anything or tickle ears, she tells you the truth.
Each chapter covers a ...more
In His Image digs deep into some of the major the characteristics of God and how we can and should be reflections of Him to the world. The book looks at God Most Holy, Loving, Good, Just, Merciful, Gracious, Faithful, Patient, Truthful, and Wise. Hopefully this doesn’t come as a shock to you, that even though we are created in His image, we are not (nor will we be) perfectly like Him. As sinners, we are in need of a Savior. While Jesus comes in and changes our hearts, we will still wrestle with ...more
Solid theology, Great outline, Awesome premise...So I gave it 4 stars. But not super memorable for me and nothing necessarily new or mind-blowing. I think I would’ve gleaned more had I read it with a group (there are discussion questions at the end of each chapter).
