None Like Him: 10 Ways God is Different From Us (and Why That's a Good Thing)ISBN: 9781433549830
God is self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign, infinite, and incomprehensible.
And that's a good thing. Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God's limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.

Jen Wilkin is a speaker, writer, and teacher of women's Bible studies. During her fifteen years of teaching, she has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. Jen and her family are members of the Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas.
"In an upside-down world that has humanized God and deified man, Jen Wilkin brings us the best news imaginable: our God is infinitely greater, more powerful, more majestic, and more wonderful than we can possibly fathom. Jen calls us to lift our eyes upward, to earnestly contemplate his attributes, and to humbly acknowledge our own limits. As we do, our hearts will be filled with wonder and awe that such a God should stoop to save and love us."

"Far beyond a Sunday school lesson listing the attributes of God, None Like Him evokes a sense of both familiarity and wonder around the characteristics of the Almighty we worship. This book puts us in our place, beneath the God of all and over all."
-- Kate Shellnutt, Associate Editor, Christianity Today; Editor, Her.meneutics
"This book made me want Jen Wilkin as my best friend. But far more than that, it made me grateful that Jen Wilkin's God is my God. Books that are this theologically rich while also being this funny, this personal, and this penetrating are rare. So don't miss this one."
-- Nancy Guthrie, Bible Teacher; author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series
