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.

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.
