    First sentence: If you?ve ever said, ?I just want to know God?s will for my life,? this book is for you. Premise/plot: In His Image isn't your typical what-is-God's-will-for-my-life 'self-help' book. I'm tempted to put in the exclamation: far from it! Wilkin writes: God is ...

    I loved this just as much as I loved Wilkin's None Like Him. This book is chock-full of things to highlight, truths from the Bible about God's character and how we are called to be like him, since we are created "in His image." This book is full of good theology, not generalization...

    "What good is it for me to choose the right home or spouse if I'm still eaten up with covetousness? What does it profit me to make the right choice if I'm still the wrong person? A lost person can make 'good choices'. But only a person indwelt by the Holy Spirit can make a good choice ...

    A better question for the Christian wanting to know God's will for his/her life, is not what should I do but who should I be? We are bombarded with what should we do. From our anxieties and fears to our hopes and dreams, we can get our hearts and minds in tizzy when it comes to kno...

    This was just the right book for me at this time in my life. Each chapter is about an aspect of God's character. The questions at the end of each chapter were thought provoking and I liked how she asked us to write out a prayer. I will read this again. ...

    Jen Wilkin does it again. What a book. This woman is full of biblical wisdom! I found this book encouraging, challenging and enlightening. Wilkin encourages the reader to focus on the character of God by breaking it into 10 aspects (Holy, loving, good, just, merciful, gracious, faithfu...

    There is nothing self-indulgent about Jen?s writing - it isn?t flowery or verbose and she doesn?t write like a blogger (thank you)! She takes her work seriously and expects the reader to do the same and there is such humility in that. I find it refreshing. I truly wish we had mor...

    We are to be Christlike but what does that mean? Wilkin helps readers understand that this goes beyond the ?What should I do?? to ?Who should I be?? She reminds us that we can know God's will for our character and godly character will produce godly action. I like that Wilki...

    Jen Wilkin once said something along the lines of, ?Ladies, if you aren?t happy with the Christian books aimed at you, write something better.? Her statement impacted me, because I can tell she lives by it. In an age when finding serious female theologians (who teach Scripture...

    This was one of the best books I have ever read. It challenges your view of who God is and how you should live based on that understanding. Excellent! ...

    4.5/5 Great book! Very helpful for anyone who wants to meditate on the will of God for our lives: to be transformed in His image. I enjoyed it, specially the chapter on wisdom. ...

    Jen Wilkin is such an amazing author! Her books have helped countless women realize that they can study theology and that they don't have to be satisfied with fluff Bible studies aimed at making women feel good about themselves. In His Image, along with None Like Him and Women of the W...

    Received an early copy for review. Jen Wilkin is an author I'm starting to love. I love her writing style, her thoughts and how much scripture she includes in her books. In His Image is all about how we can reflect the character of God and not by just one example, but she gives us 1...

    Jen Wilkin does it again. One of my favorite Christians to follow because she doesn?t make things fluffy and encourages women to use their minds. This book is practical, gospel-centered, and incredibly applicable. ...

    Usually the longer I spend on a book the less I like it, however, The extended amount of time spent on this book is not a reflection of its goodness/lack there of. As with her last book I read (women of the word), Jen Wilkin clearly conveys biblical truth in a way that is both concise/...

    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). ...

    This is my second book by Jen Wilkins. Love what she writes . Sound theology . Not just for women but equally profitable to men too. ...

    This is my first read of Wilkin?s, though I?ve been an admirer for awhile. Her knowledge and love for scripture is evident in her writing, and her book challenges believers to not focus on ?what they should do? to fulfill the will of God, but rather ?who they should be.? Th...

    I continue to be amazed at Jen Wilkin?s concise and down to earth way of presenting theology. She unpacks the will of God simply, and with such hope that we can truly reflect God?s image. Big takeaway: the will of God is more about who we become than what we do. Answer the question...

    ?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 ...

    3.5 rounded up because much better than None Like Him. Wonder what would happen if there was a book combining the 2 ideas... A what we should Vs what we do... Could be interesting. ...

    Really appreciated this book as a way to come alongside believers as they grow in Christlikeness. I recommend if you struggle with discernment or wonder what God?s will for your life is- especially loved the last chapter on Wisdom. Enjoyed the discussion of the relationship between j...

    Jen Wilkin manages to begin this book with some very impactful words: ?It?s a uniquely Christin musing, the question of God?s will. Those who have never called on the name of Jesus Christ are not the least concerned with discovering its answer. It reveals a believer?s awaren...
