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 10 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.

A Pirate's Perspective....
This book was recommended by a female friend from church. At first glance, I likened her book recommendation, “None Like Him”, to that of offering up a movie night of “Bridges of Madison County” to a Pirate. Never one to forego an opportunity to learn something new, however, I channeled my fatherhood dives into makeup and dress-up night with my daughters and blocked some time to give it a listen with an open heart.
Four hours later, I sat in silence. Trying to grasp the awesomeness of what I had just taken in. Like being drawn graciously out of cold incompetence and gently guided into the warm light of awareness. I felt at peace, and yet ever smaller by comparison to our Lord. By the end, I was no longer a pirate, but a little boy with a wooden sword.
