Overall, this book was just okay. It has fairly sound teaching, and I can appreciate Wilkin's desire to motivate more women to really know their Bibles.

However, her tone throughout the first half of the book read to me like, "I used to be a terrible Christian who didn't know anything, either. But I have now arrived, and if you just do exactly what I do, you can become an awesome Christian, too!" (Her tone does improve in the second half a bit.)

The book was really dry. I finally started skimming in the last few chapters (which I hardly ever do), because I just wanted it to end already. Her version of studying the Bible is essentially the induction method. Rather than reading an entire book on it, one could save a lot of time and energy by doing a quick Google search to discover the key attributes of such a study. (This book is about 150 pages, but it could have been greatly condensed!)

The bulk of examples/anecdotes were about herself and her family. I would have personally preferred reading stories from multiple women in various life stages.

The more I read, the more I wondered if perhaps Wilkin is an ENFP/ESFP on the Myers Briggs scale. I'm an ISTJ, and so it would make sense that the concepts she spoke of being "breakthrough" type moments only made me go, "Well, duh." She writes as if what she struggled to grasp is the same thing that every woman struggles with. The truth is, we all come to our Bibles with vastly different personalities and experiences, and since she seemed to be writing to only one type of person (someone who shares her exact personality), I had a very hard time connecting with her and walking away with anything of value...

For someone who is very new to the Christian faith and needs very basic information on getting started with studying the Bible, or for the ENFP :) this could be a helpful read.

En Diez palabras que dan vida, Jen Wilkin nos recuerda sobre el poder vivificante que tiene la ley perfecta de Dios en el creyente. Los Diez Mandamientos son palabras que Dios le habló a una nación que había sido recientemente liberada. Son palabras sobre la obediencia y la santidad, atemporales en importancia y sabiduría. Pero aún así, estas mismas palabras hoy en día son malinterpretadas, olvidadas o simplemente ignoradas. Wilkin enseña a sus lectores cómo los Diez Mandamientos impactan sus vidas hoy, y les ayudan a amar a Dios y a otros, a vivir en libertad gozosa y a anhelar ese día futuro cuando Dios será adorado por la eternidad. Estas palabras antiguas y atemporales no deben pasar desapercibidas. Son una delicia y sirven como meditación diaria para aquellos que invocan el nombre del Señor.… (més)

This book discusses 10 characteristics of God that can also be taken on by human beings. In other words, the book discusses 10 "communicable attributes" of God. (The author has another book that discusses 10 "incommunicable attributes" of God such as sovereign, omniscient, omnipotent....) The communicable attributes include holy, loving, good, just, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful and wise. God entails those qualities to the utmost, but mankind, as image bearers of God, can have these qualities reflected in us as well.

Each attribute gets a chapter. Each chapter is short. At the end of each chapter are 5-7 Bible verses for the reader to meditate on, 4 questions for reflection, and a beautifully written prayer. The author uses a lot of everyday examples or funny vignettes to illustrate her points, so the book is easy to read. But it's not fluff; her theological grounding is strong. I think this is a good book for when you want to do some Christian reading that is serious but not overbearing, lively but not frivolous.
