Christlike, by Bill Hull, is a book that deserves to be well marked up and have a place on every Christian’s book shelf. The purpose of the author is ”to so change your mind that after reading this book, it won’t be able to return to its original shape. My goal is to revolutionize the course of your life and change your mind about what it means to be a Christian”, and Pastor Hull achieves this goal powerfully and personally. Tackling the hard issue of “why do people who claim to be Christian not act like it”, Hull addresses issues of transformation and being formed in Christ from the inside-out and outside-in. He weaves personal struggles and situations seemlessly with practical steps for individuals and churches to take. The most impacting observation Hull makes is also the simplest: “There is no other path to Christian spirutal transformation than through meaningful interaction with the Word of God.” In fact, all of the author’s insights into being a disciple and spritual transformation are based in simplicity and uncomplicated obedience. Finally, our transformation and obedience are not only for our benefit but are meant to influence others and the world – by you being different, you will make a difference. Bill Hull’s newest book is an excellent addition to any believer’s library.
