    1. The fact that this book took two years to finish is a reflection of the reader, not the author or the quality of the book. I loved it. I do wish I'd read it more quickly so I could think of it as a whole more, but each chapter was able to stand alone for me whenever I read it over the last two years. I highlighted a lot and will hopefully come back to this book in the future.

    2. This was an excellent overview of the I AM statements of Christ. After reading it, I could not help but to have a greater love for Christ's power, love, and glory.

    3. This review first appeared on my blog, Jacob's Café (jacobscafe).Over the past few years, I have come to deeply appreciate the value of living in the present and not always the future. When I came across Warren Wiersbe's Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ, I was very intrigued. I've always loved hearing the various names of God and their significance. Using them as a devotional to see God around us all the more is awesome.The book starts out great, emphasizing the importa [...]

    4. God is in the Present. Are You? In Jesus in the Present Tense, Warren W. Wiersbe intimately and extensively expounds on all the I AM statements made by Jesus. I AM is a present-tense title, indicating that Jesus is alive and with us at all times.The Great I AM statements include: 1) The Bread of Life, 2) The Light of the World, 3) The Door, 4) The Good Shepherd, 5) The Resurrection and the Life, 6) The Way, the Truth, and the Life, 7) The True Vine, and The great I AM in John 8:58.The Bread of L [...]

    5. I love how Dr. Wiersbe begins the preface of this book, "There is no substitute for Jesus Christ. Only Jesus can save us from our sins and give us the grace to live for Him. If you want fullness of life, you have to go to Jesus." Hope for the hopeless which, sometimes, finds many christians always looking backwards into a past that can't be changed and feeling hopeless because they can't change that past. But is this what God truly desires for His child(ren)? Dr. Warren Wiersbe does an excellent [...]

    6. Title: JESUS IN THE PRESENT TENSEAuthor: Warren W. WiersbePublisher: David C. CookJanuary 2011ISBN: 978-0-7814-0487-7Genre: Inspirational/Christian livingGod doesn’t want us to ignore the past. He wants to use it as a rudder to guide us. Not an anchor to hold us back. Nor does He want us to neglect planning for the future, so long as we say, ‘If it is the Lord’s will’… The better we understand the Lord’s I Am statements, and by faith apply them, the more our strength will equal our d [...]

    7. “The way we relate to the Lord determines how He will relate to us.” By reading His “I AM” statements in the Bible, we’re better able to understand who He is. When Moses asked God who he should tell Pharaoh who had sent him, God replied: “I AM WHO I AM.” Moses told the Israelites, “I AM has sent me to you.”’ God’s I AM statements:- Yahweh-Jireh: The Lord will provide or see to it- Yahweh-Rophe: The Lord who heals- Yahweh-Nissi: The Lord our banner- Yahweh-M’Kaddesh: The L [...]

    8. I was really looking forward to listening to this audio but it been a bit of a mixed experience for me. As this is a theological book there are an awful lot of scripture references. When you are reading a print copy you can skip the chapter and verse references, but obviously with an audio you can’t do that. Its made listening quite hard going, because it splits up the narrative too much, and you lose the thread. On occasion I’ve had to give up as it was just too frustrating. I have persever [...]

    9. I look forward to reading anything this author writes. I think he is one of my favorite bible teachers and commentators of this time. This book is about the I AM statements of Christ. It is absolutely powerful and compelling. If a person can read this and be totally unaffected I would wonder how. An experience with Christ demands a response - and this book brings the reader face to face with the great I AM! From the old testament all the way through the new Dr Wiersbe exposes these life-changing [...]

    10. We live in a world filled with hungry people who are searching for reality and cannot find it. "They are spending their money on that which is not bread and their labor on that which does not satisfy." - Isaiah.55:2Why? Because we who are ENJOYING the feast have not told them about Jesus, the bread of life, or have not helped to make it possible for others to tell them. One day they will say to us, "For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink"- [...]

    11. Having spent a few years as a biblical studies major in college, i can tell you this is one of the BEST books on Jesus that I have read, backed by scripture at every turn. It is easy to read and understand and yet stands completely on the biblical word as nothing is just the author's ideas but him basically connecting the dots for everyday Christians and those who know nothing at all. I am halfway through and I can't wait to share it with others.It was a fantastic read. I felt closer to the word [...]

    12. I read one of Wiersbe's books from his 'Be' series years ago and enjoyed it, so when I saw this on sale I downloaded it. As the title says, he examines the various I AM statements of Christ by chapter and then relates how their biblical meaning can be relevant to our lives today. Hoping to show us that Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday, if you get my drift. It was a fairly easy read, only about 208 pages and his in depth explanations had a number of scripture references as well as pers [...]

    13. Jesus ForevermoreThere's so much information in these pages. There's so much to learn. We could, and probably should, read it more than once. We were created to worship God and glorify Him. If we thought more about eternity, we would acknowledge that life is not a solo enterprise. This guide reminds us that what we are in ourselves is not as important as what we are in Christ. Seek the Lord NOW while you can.

    14. Great book! It makes one re-evaluate their relationship with God, and appreciate the gift of God's grace even more. Most importantly, living each day at a time, in the present tense, trusting in God's guidance & grace.

    15. This book explores the I AM statements of Christ, reminding us that Jesus is alive and with us--in the present tense--today. He didn't say "I was the Bread of Life." He said, "I AM the Bread of Life;" "I AM the Light of the World;" "I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

    16. Another Great Wiersbe ReadSo glad to read the full version of this book as our class studied an abridged version in LifeWay's MasterWork series. Practical applications paired with spiritual truth.

    17. I enjoyed reading the detailed studies of the "I am" statements. The author helps the reader think more fully and gain a better understanding and appreciation. I found this book to be a good tool in my daily Bible study time.

    18. This book explores the I AM statements of Christ, reminding us that Jesus is alive and with us--in the present tense--today. He didn't say "I was the Bread of Life." He said, "I AM the Bread of Life;" "I AM the Light of the World;" "I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

    19. InspiringThe book is truly inspiring helping the individual to live a life of faith. The book can be summed up by the last line in the book "we must live in the present tense, abiding in Christ. "

    20. Wiersbe presents the Christian with an enjoyable meditation in the person of Christ through Jesus' I am statements in John. There is always value in looking at the Lord's presence in our lives through His own words. Wiersbe sticks to the text and brings out the glory of the great I AM.

    21. Excellent exposition on the I AM Sayings of Jesus. Full of practical wisdom, illustrations, and application.

    22. Simple truthI have been very encouraged by Wiersbe's book. I was expecting something more technical when I began, but I was surprised when it was much more devotional.

    23. Very good book I did Lots of highlighting about life and Times of Jesus and what Jesus is and said he was also how it is shown in prophecy in the ot

    24. This one took awhile to work through. It was pretty detailed material, but I really appreciated all of the scripture references. Very well-planned book.
