    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 ...

    "In His Image" is a Bible study on ten attributes of God that Christians are called to reflect. She talked about: holy, loving, good, just, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise. The author explored what it means to be holy, loving, etc., in a biblical sense--how Go...

    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 page...

    In His Image Jen Wilkin's newest book, In His Image, continues the consideration of God's attributes which she began in her book None Like Him:10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That's a Good Thing). The earlier book focused on characteristics of God which are unique to Him and...

    "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 book is the companion book and the natural next step to Jen Wilkin's provious book "None Like Him." "None Like Him" explored 10 traits of God that are only unique to him, his incommunicable traits, and likewise caused the reader to take a look at the ways we are not like God and w...

    I have done a few of Wilkin's Bible studies and have great respect and appreciation for her high view of God and the study of His Word. I'm reading/studying my way through her most recent book, In His Image, and I can tell you it is NOT one to miss out on. "All of God's attributes are...

    In His Image is the companion/sequel book to Jen Wilkin?s None Like Him, one of my favorite reads last year. While None Like Him covered the attributes of God that are solely His (and applying them to ourselves results in sin), In His Image is all about His communicable characteristi...

    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...

    ** This is one of those cases where I wish for 1/2 stars so badly, I can taste it - because this book straddles somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4 stars, right on the fence line. I?ll be honest. I haven?t read a Christian book for years but Jen Wilkin was a welcome reintroduction in...

    Jen Wilkin begins by urging readers to ask a different question: not "What does God want me to do?" but, "Who does God want me to be?" and has written a great Bible study on growing in God's image by describing ten of His attributes. Her ideas are backed by scripture. Her writing is cl...

    We know that God is merciful and gracious but we typically try to separate the two, instead of as Jen puts it, seeing them as sisters. We separate God?s mercy and grace from His justice when in fact all three are connected. Know God: In His Image is an invitation to learn more abo...

    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...

    `In His Image` 10 Ways God Calls us to Reflect His Character by author Jen Wilkin is a Spiritual growth book for believers. Jen says most Christians are asking the wrong question, `What Should I Do`, instead they should ask, `Who Should I Be`? She says, `If we focus on our actions wit...

    ***I received a copy of this book from Crossway through Netgalley. All opinions are my own*** 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 s...

    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). ...

    Reviewed at my blog: Babbling Books "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...

    I had the joy of reading "In His Image" by Jen Wilkin (available in paperback May 31st, available on Kindle now). Just a short commendation on the author: I would describe her writing as rich, simple, straight-forward, appropriately fun, relevant, relatable, not fluffy, and not watered...

    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 applicat...

    Wilken's book came at such a needed time in my life, when I was questioning His will for various aspects of my life. Wilken rightly points out the way to know this is by knowing Him and pursing God's communicable attributes in our lives. "Without meaning to, we can begin to regard ...

    4 Stars I really appreciate Jen Wilkin and her approach to scripture. I enjoy that this book is not of the typical self-help variety that is so often found in the Christian Non-Fiction world. Rather, it is one that constantly points us back to Christ. While Wilkin and I have a few d...

    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 shoc...

    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 ...
