Publisher's Summary

In Jesus in the Present Tense, Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe explores the “I AM” statements of God—from His burning bush conversation with Moses, to His powerful reassurances to the Israelites, to Jesus’s startling claim to be the Light of the World.

Many Christians find themselves mired in past regrets or future fears, but the name of God itself reminds readers that God wants them to live in the present. The more readers understand and apply God’s I AM statements from the Old and New Testaments, the more they will realize God’s peace and joy. Then they will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense—which is just where He wants them to be.

A must read for those seeking to know Christ.

I first heard of the author because Dr. Charles Stanley would quote him often. This book uses a great many Bible verses to paint a clear picture on the mind of God so that anyone who comes in spirit and in truth to seek a personal relationship can have access to worship, wisdom, and fellowship with the God of the Universe.
Many good authors write good opinion books on the Bible. This book uses the Bible as an opinion piece on itself. This to a believer like me is music to my ears.

"I AM," Jesus said, and He IS

Our Lord tells us throughout His Word many of the various ways He works in our lives through the roles He fills: I AM the Good Shepherd, the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Resurrection and the Life, and many, many more. Jesus in the Present Tense is a wonderful reminder and study that shows us that Jesus is all we need. Warren W. Wiersbe masterfully takes each "I AM" statement and lays it out in a clear, understandable, and thrilling way. Be encouraged by Jesus in the Present Tense. He is not the I WAS; He is I AM!

Seemed directed toward new Christians

There were some great points in this book and I enjoyed it but it seemed geared toward Christians that were newer to the faith. Most of it seemed like I had heard it before in sermons and other books but their were enough nuggets/gems in there to make it worth while. I had been hoping to go deeper into the theology of the I AM statements of Jesus that clearly communicated to the Jews of his day that He was the one in the burning bush that spoke to Moses.

Vintage Wiersbe

Dr. Wiersbe takes the reader on a journey of the I Am's of Jesus Christ in a way that makes them come alive. He introduces us to new insights about our Savior. As always he clearly makes the Scriptures come alive. I highly recommend this book.
