《如何更像基督》这本小书揭示了那些偶尔的珍珠般的真相，使它值得阅读。我相信，《如何更像基督》似乎相当重视对人的意志，而忽略了圣灵的力量。但是，如果有人住成为圣洁最终是通过圣灵的力量的神的恩典提交给上帝的，那么从这本书中有很多很好的教训。Dods reveals those occasional pearls of truth in this short book that make it with reading. I do believe that Dods seems to put a heavy emphasis on the will of the person to the neglect of the power of the Holy Spirit . But, if someone keeps in mind that becoming holy is ultimately the work of God's grace through the power of the Holy Spirit working in a heart submitted to God there are lots of good lessons to be gleaned from this book.
《如何更像基督》也严重依赖圣经叙事的隐喻应用。虽然这不是一件坏事，它却经常被误解。一个人应该总是先知道文本的主要目的，才能作出隐喻性的应用。Dods also relies heavily on a metaphorical application of biblical narratives. Although, this is not a bad thing , it is often misunderstood . One should always look first to the primary intent of the passage and what it says before making a metaphorical application.
