《如何更像基督》這本小書揭示了那些偶爾的珍珠般的真相，使它值得閱讀。我相信，《如何更像基督》似乎相當重視對人的意志，而忽略了圣靈的力量。但是，如果有人住成為圣潔最終是通過圣靈的力量的神的恩典提交給上帝的，那么從這本書中有很多很好的教訓。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》也嚴重依賴圣經敘事的隱喻應用。雖然這不是一件壞事，它卻經常被誤解。一個人應該總是先知道文本的主要目的，才能作出隱喻性的應用。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.
