I received a copy of the new book, "None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different From Us (and why that's a good thing)" by Jen Wilkin. The premise is that as humans, we can never fathom how BIG our God is. As Christians, we continually pursue God, reading and learning more about Him, communing with Him. But we have to also understand that we will never be able to comprehend ALL of Him because He is limitless.
The "10 Ways God is Different From Us" are separated into 10 chapters.
Infinite - He is immeasurable
Incomprehensible - He is beyond human reckoning
Self-Sufficient - His right hand sustains
Eternal - He is behind and before
Immutable - He endures
Omnipresent - He is near and far, high and low
Omniscient - He searches, knows, discerns
Omnipotent - He does wondrous works
Sovereign - He ordains each day
Jen does an amazing job at explaining what all of those big words mean, and she emphasizes that we can never be any of those things. People can be holy, loving, gracious, faithful, and righteous, and many other good things that reflect God's character. But unlike God, we have limits. And Jen suggests there is much freedom in letting God be God, and resting in that.
Jen uses personal stories and pop culture references to help illustrate what we are like versus what God is like. It's enjoyable to read, and it's very Biblically based.
At the end of each chapter, there are verses for meditation, questions for reflection, and prompts for prayer. I could see this book as a great focus for a women's Bible study or small group.
Purchase Jen's book here (Amazon).
