Human beings were created to reflect the image of God—but only to a limited extent. Although we share important attributes with God (love, mercy, compassion, etc.), there are other qualities that only God possesses, such as unlimited power, knowledge, and authority. At the root of all sin is our rebellious desire to be like God in such ways—a desire that first manifested itself in the garden of Eden. In None Like Him, Jen Wilkin leads us on a journey to discover ten ways God is different from us—and why that’s a good thing. In the process, she highlights the joy of seeing our limited selves in relation to a limitless God, and how such a realization frees us from striving to be more than we were created to be.
- Knowing God
Just finished! Wow! I love how Jen was able to articulate our ways are no comparison to Gods ways! Having a true understand of who God is makes all the difference in how we see the world we walk in! I walked away with more of who He is and loving Him more deeper!
- Good read
It is a helpful book. It helps you to refocus on who you are in relation to who God is. It helps to keep things in perspective when doing your day to day tasks.

As the title of this book implies, there is no one in this universe who is like our God. Jen Wilkin has written a book presumably for women but which is equally valuable to men.
Although I with many years of study and contemplation, much of what the author has to say has already come to be part of my life. Nevertheless, the insights and examples that she gives in this book bring some areas of my relationship with God and people into stronger light.
We all have a tendency at times to assume some of the attributes of God to ourselves. If we look around us, there are many around us who think that they actually have these attributes. Without fail, those who do not acknowledge that the only true power and grace come from God will inevitably find out the truth at judgement if not before.
Jen does an excellent job reading the book. I prefer when possible that the author produce the audio version of their book because you get an extra dose of the author’s heart when they share the thoughts themselves.
I was given a free audio version of this book for my agreement to review it but this has not influenced my personal impressions of the book.
- I found this audio book to be professionally produced and filled with great information. I can see this book being used in a small group study on God’s attributes.
I’m always hesitant to read an audiobook narrated by its author, as most authors are not professional narrators. This can make listening difficult. Thankfully that’s not the case with None Like Him by Jen Wilkin.
She nailed it!
She sounds crisp, clear and has the right intonation. Her reading speed was neither too fast nor too slow, which made the pacing of the book flow comfortably.
The audio sounds professionally produced with no background noises to distract.
In this audio, she covers ten attributes of God. These aspects will make you remember how to be in awe of the Creator all over again.
And though these aspects might sound scary and intimidating, they aren't. The author manages to explain through Scripture and story, that these scary-sounding attributes are actually meant to comfort us.
No longer do we need to feel obligated to be in control of everything. God has it all under control! And He loves us like no one ever could. So we can let go of that false sense of running the show and let the One who made the show have His power back.
With ten chapters devoted to each attribute, the author provides relevant Scriptures to study at the end. Along with a few study questions to help you dig deeper into each aspect of God. I particularly like the very end. This is where the author encourages the reader to write out a prayer based on that chapter’s attribute.
Overall, I found this audio book to be professionally produced and filled with great information. I can see this book being used in a small group study on God’s attributes. But, it would work equally well as a personal study for any individual interested in learning more about God and how we are created in His image, but He is so much more than we could ever be (and why that’s a good thing)!.
