This book is so good and convicting, every Christian woman needs to read this book. It was an enriching read and I learned a lot, and realized there are things in my life that I need to change.
This book deals with 10 attributes of God: infinite, incomprehensible, self-existent, self-sufficient, eternal, immutable, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent and sovereign and how they are only true of God. Wilkin also showed how we as sinful human beings try to to make these attributes true of ourselves. She then ended the chapter by showing how we as Christians should view these attributes and what we can do to try to not fall into the trap of trying to make ourselves like God.
As I mentioned before, this was super convicting, especially since Jen Wilkin was so transparent and every time she mentioned some small sin that she had committed, I was convicted because I have been guilty of the exact same things. Two thoughts that constantly went through my head were “Shots fired!” and “Lord, thank you for being patient with me when I’ve committed these sins that never seemed like sin.” I am so glad that I have been saved by the redeeming blood of Christ.
I enjoyed how this book was theologically rich, yet it was a quick read. It was only about 175 pages and I flew through it. I definitely want to go back sometime and spend more time going through this book and work through the study questions at the end of each chapter.
This book deserves 5/5 Stars because it was convicting and enriching. It also taught me some things about God that I often tend to forget.
Thanks to NetGalley and Crossway publishing for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
