How Jesus’ ‘I Am’ Sayings Make A Difference in Our Lives Today

Book Reviewed by Dr. David P. Craig

Warren W. Wiersbe is one of my favorite Christian writers because he is biblical, encouraging, and practical. This offering is no different and especially offers much encouragement for the weary Christian. In this journey through the ‘I Am’ sayings of Jesus, and treatments of many other Scripture passages as well, Wiersbe articulates the amazing difference Jesus makes today in the lives of those who are followers of Him.

There is great encouragement to be found in the pages of this book for those who want to understand who Jesus is, why He came as God incarnate, and how He helps us today. I found this book to be a great reminder that Jesus is more than a historical person or a distant deity. He is alive and present in our lives and more than ready to help us bear fruit for that which will last for eternity. The ‘I Am’ sayings dealt with in this book are a wonderful picture of how Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and demonstrate how we get to be an integral part of these realities.

I highly recommend this book for understanding and applying the ‘I Am’ sayings of Jesus and the bonus chapters that also show how Jesus makes all the difference in having an abundant life through Him in the here and now.
