Exciting phrases, easy acronyms, and memorable lists formed from dense works of systematic theology can be helpful for the everyday Christian. While these reductions of God’s Word and His nature help us understand general frameworks, they are unable to help us understand everything the Bible teaches. It is one thing...
Most of us have an underdeveloped vocabulary around what’s true about God. —Jen Wilkin
Unlocking the Bible is thrilled to announce the launch of a new podcast: Readers and Writers with Colin Smith. We’ve started releasing weekly episodes, recorded live at The Gospel Coalition’s 2017 National Conference.
Our first guest is Jen Wilkin, who shares about her writing and her newest book from Crossway None Like Him: 10 Ways God Is Different from Us (and Why That’s a Good Thing). Here’s a summary of the book’s content:
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.
