"I am the bread of life." "I am the light of the world." "I am the gate." "I am the good shepherd." "I am the resurrection and the life." "I am the way, the truth, and the life." "I am the true vine."

You've probably heard of the seven "I AM" statements of Jesus, and you likely know at least one of them ("the way, the truth, and the life"), but do you know what Jesus means by them? Why is He calling Himself bread? Light? Well, okay, that can be understood, but gate? What's so significant about being a good shepherd? And, while we may know "way, truth, and life", what does that actually mean?

Jesus in the Present Tense, by Warren Wiersbe, aims to explain what Jesus meant by these sayings, and what this means for you and how it applies to your life. Each statement has a chapter dedicated to it, with other chapters giving context and other information you need. It is very in-depth, and there is a lot of meat here, so a warning is necessary: the book is not written for casual readers.

The book is filled with numerous Scripture references- I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say there may be over a hundred of them. Wiersbe digs through the Bible and comes up with as many verses as he can find that relate in any way to the topic at hand. This is great if you are actively studying your Bible with the printed book. However, I was casually listening to the audiobook while mopping the floors at work, and I found all the Scripture references to be a little distracting, as I kept losing track of Wiersbe's train of thought. I also learned that hearing "chapter" and "verse" over and over and over again gives me a headache.

The narrator, Maurice England, is very good. He is clear and engaging, and I really like his voice.

Jesus was not as careful as we might think about concealing his identity as the Son of God. Modern religious academics may argue whether or not Jesus ever claimed to be God, but the first century religious academics knew without a doubt who Jesus claimed to be: I AM, the God of Now. Not a God of history. Not a savior for the future. Not entirely, for he is both. But a God purely of Now.

What does that mean? Warren Wiersbe, famous for his heartwarming lay-level Be Commentaries, unpacks a bit of this mystery by examining the I AM statements of Jesus in this new book Jesus in the Present Tense. Beginning with the God's statement to Moses in Exodus 3 and working onward through all of Christ's I AM statements in John's Gospel and then finally finishing with the concluding statement "I AM Jesus," Wiersbe paints a colorful tapestry that brings the historical Jesus out of history and into our lives today.

In his classic style, Wiersbe breaks down each of the statements, littering his commentary with anecdotes, stories, and references. He spends time both examining the passage in its context and holding it up to the present to see how that truth still functions today. That discussion builds to a crescendo when Wiersbe discusses how those truths played out in the life of Paul. He then takes that discussion and applies it to believers today. Powerful and convicting, Wiersbe challenges the Christian not to live a cold or lukewarm faith, but to be alive with the power of the Spirit--Jesus in the present tense.

The only things I take issue with this book are minor points. First, Wiersbe and I interpret Paul's "I Soliloquy" of Romans 7 differently.

I am a voracious reader of any book written by Dr. Warren Wiersbe. The latest on my checked off list is `Jesus in the Present Tense: The I AM Statements of Christ.'

Here is the synopsis of this book:

God is in the present? Are you? Do you find yourself living in memories, imaginations, and fears more than in the current moment? As Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe writes, "My past may discourage me and my future may frighten me, but `the life I now live' today can be enriching and encouraging because "Christ lives in me" (Gal 2:20)."
In Jesus in the Present Tense, Dr. Wiersbe explores the I AM statements of God - from His burning-bush conversation with Moses, to His powerful reassurances to the Israelites, to Jesus' startling claims to be the Light of the World, the Good Shepherd, and the True Vine.
The better you understand God's I AM statements from both the Old and the New Testaments and apply these truths to your life, the more you will abide in Christ and bear fruit for His glory today. Then you will be free to live, serve, and know God more richly in the present tense - which is just where He wants you to be.

Here is the author's biography:

Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe is an internationally known Bible teacher and the former pastor of The Moody Church in Chicago. For ten years he was associated with the Back to the Bible radio broadcast, first as Bible teacher and then as general director. Dr. Wiersbe has written more than 160 books, including the "BE" series of Bible commentaries, which have sold more than four million copies. He and his wife, Betty, live in Lincoln, Nebraska.
