Pursuing Uncomplicated Obedience: A Review of Bill Hull’s New Book “Christlike”


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 Christians 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 loved 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.
