I’m always hesitant to read an audiobook narrated by its author, as most authors are not professional narrators. This can make listening difficult. Thankfully that’s not the case with None Like Him by Jen Wilkin.
She nailed it!
She sounds crisp, clear and has the right intonation. Her reading speed was neither too fast nor too slow, which made the pacing of the book flow comfortably.
The audio sounds professionally produced with no background noises to distract.
In this audio, she covers ten attributes of God. These aspects will make you remember how to be in awe of the Creator all over again.
She digs deep into the following:
- Infinite: The God of No Limits
- Incomprehensible: The God of Infinite Mystery
- Self-Existent: The God of Infinite Creativity
- Self-Sufficient: The God of Infinite Provision
- Eternal: The God of Infinite Days
- Immutable: The God of Infinite Sameness
- Omnipresent: The God of Infinite Places
- Omniscient: The God for Infinite Knowledge
- Omnipotent: The God of Infinite Power
- Sovereign: The God of Infinite Rule
And though these aspects might sound scary and intimidating, they aren’t. The author manages to explain through Scripture and story, that these scary-sounding attributes are actually meant to comfort us.
No longer do we need to feel obligated to be in control of everything. God has it all under control! And He loves us like no one ever could. So we can let go of that false sense of running the show and let the One who made the show have His power back.

With ten chapters devoted to each attribute, the author provides relevant Scriptures to study at the end. Along with a few study questions to help you dig deeper into each aspect of God. I particularly like the very end. This is where the author encourages the reader to write out a prayer based on that chapter’s attribute.
Overall, I found this audio book to be professionally produced and filled with great information. I can see this book being used in a small group study on God’s attributes. But, it would work equally well as a personal study for any individual interested in learning more about God and how we are created in His image, but He is so much more than we could ever be (and why that’s a good thing)!.
Author: Jen Wilkin
Narrator: Jen Wilkin
Run Time: 4 hours – unabridged
Description: Human beings were created to reflect the image of God—but only to a limited extent. Although we share important attributes with God (love, mercy, compassion, etc.), there are other qualities that only God possesses, such as unlimited power, knowledge, and authority. At the root of all sin is our rebellious desire to be like God in such ways—a desire that first manifested itself in the garden of Eden. In None Like Him, Jen Wilkin leads us on a journey to discover ten ways God is different from us—and why that’s a good thing. In the process, she highlights the joy of seeing our limited selves in relation to a limitless God, and how such a realization frees us from striving to be more than we were created to be.
