    "Christlike" is a book about what it means to be a disciple of Christ and why we should want to be one. It's Christ-focused, Bible-based, and the author used Scripture to make his arguments. I enjoyed that he presented a balanced, whole-Bible view of the various points of theology that he touched on. He understood that sometimes it's not a matter of one or the other being more important but of both being equally important since they're interconnected.Chapter two examined the five main leanings in the Western church today (like a social justice focus, prosperity focus, etc.) and how they have some things right but that their focus is off. This causes problems in the type of Christians they turn out. I understand why he put in this chapter--and he handled it well and didn't come across as condemning--but I felt the heart of the book was the topic of discipleship, which was covered in the rest of the book.He described how surrendering to Christ's work in our heart and being obedient to God with our actions (even when we don't feel like it) leads to changes to our thoughts and emotions that work outward to effect our everyday actions. This leads to uncomplicated obedience to God that can change the world, one person at a time.I was sometimes a little hesitant about how the author worded things when trying to describe an idea, but his conclusions were always spot-on and Bible-based. The book makes you think because he correctly doesn't try to simplify what is complex, but the information is not difficult to understand and he does get to "the simplicity on the other side of complexity."I'd highly recommend this well-written book to all Christians. Instead of grabbing the latest "Christian Life" book, grab this discipleship book. It'll be worth it.I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program.

    Christlike by Bill Hull is about becoming more like Christ inside ourselves spiritually and the change affecting our actions. The book contains at the end of each of its fourteen chapters a short reflection on what was covered. I found this to be very helpful and I nice little recap. I would suggest the book for use by those who want to grow spiritually closer to God through disciplined practice and also a tool for small groups to use and discuss. The message is clear, well supported, and consistently thought provoking.The read was continuously captivating to me and has helped me personally in my walk with God. It shows how to witness to people by first looking inward and focusing on ourselves via our relationship with God. Furthermore, it shows in what ways we can work to change our lives, rather than just simply saying, Im waiting for God, through prayer and disciplining oneself.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Navpress as part of their Blogger Review Program book review bloggers program.

    From the first line, "I want to change your mind" to the last line "In order to make a difference, we need to be different," Bill Hull takes you through all the misconceptions about church and the way Christian relate to non-believers and how we need to change.Through a deeper and more intimate relationship with Christ, we will begin to see others in a different way. Our prayer should be, "Change my heart, shape my spirit, do Your work." We need to rethink what it means to be a Christian. Jesus' gospel was simple and straightforward, "For God so love the world that He gave His only Begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life" (John 3:16); however, according to Hull, Christians have made it far more complex.In "Christlike", Hull gives you guidelines of what it truly means to live a life of uncomplicated obedience. "We start with desire to be like Christ, and through sustained effort and God's power, we become Christlike."This book cause you to rethink a lot of the ideas you have about church, evangelism and discipleship. It's worth reading especially if you want to become a better disciple of Christ.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress as part of their blogger review program.
