I Am… Exploring the 'I Am' Sayings of John's Gospel by Iain D. CampbellThis week bloggers are participating in a book review blog tour for I Am… Exploring the ‘I am’ Sayings of John’s Gospel by Iain D. Campbell (EP Books, 2012). Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“I Am…Exploring the ‘I am’ Sayings of John’s Gospel by Iain Campbell seeks to exposit and explain the details regarding the ‘I am’ sayings in the Gospel fo John, specifically spoken through the mouth of Jesus Christ. Although brief at 120 pages, it is meaty. Although the book only expounds on the 7 sayings of Jesus, it is a great introduction to one of the main themes in the book of John.”
Aaron Sellars (www.aaronsellars.com)

“This book is a refreshing look at the core of the Gospel: Jesus and how He is all we need. I have heard the,’I AM,’ sayings before, but this book makes you fall back in love with Jesus, why He came, lived, died and resurrected from the dead for us. If you are looking for a book to recommend to someone checking out Jesus for the first time this book is highly recommended.”
Heather Dannewitz (brokenathisfeet.wordpress.com)

“Piercing, gospel rich, and teeming with practical insights… Don’t skip out on this one. It’s 120+ pages of gospel truth. A great way to introduce a non-reader friend or family to deep theological truth without an intimidating them with something like Calvin’s Institutes.”
Matthew Sims (grace4sinners.blogspot.com)

“Admittedly, I AM… is not really bursting with new information. Many of Campbell’s points can be found in various commentaries and studies on the Gospel of John. However, having just these sayings extracted and put in an easy-to-read bundle is well worth it.”
Doug Hibbard (www.doughibbard.com)

“I’ve read both expository and textual/historical critical pieces on the Gospels and still there was not a single chapter in the book where I did not learn something exceptionally beautiful… This book exploded its way into my top 5 books of 2012. Do yourself a favor and add it to your reading list in 2013.”
David Ramos (offsetinnocence.wordpress.com)

“Iain D. Campbell’s “I AM,” a brief yet info-packed study of seven uses of “I AM” by Jesus in the Bible. For those biblical scholars and others who are desirous of an in depth exploration on the “I AM” sayings of Jesus in the Bible, this is a good place to start.”
Ilene Saidel (www.ilenesaidel.com)

“While being theologically sound and packed with numerous Scriptural support it is written in a style that is non-intimidating and easy to follow. Being raised in the rural South, the highest praise I can give this book is to say “That will preach.”
Todd Randolph (mountainpointe.org)

“These devotional reflections focus on the person of Christ and his purposes. I think that this book is perfect for personal devotions, or to read along with a friend.”
James Matichuk (matichuk.wordpress.com)

“As I read this non-fiction teaching by Campbell, I was encouraged that the he took time to show us how these revelations in the New Testament are foreshadowed in the Old Testament. There are themes that begin to develop in Genesis, and Jesus comes to reveal Himself as that which was spoken of by God through the writers of the Old Testament Books.”
Lisa Johnson (seekingwithallyurheart.blogspot.com)

“Whether for personal devotions, an example of good preaching, or help with your own study of the “I AM” statements, this book by Mr. Campbell offers real help!”
Jimmy Reagan (reaganreview.wordpress.com)

“As I sat reading it, several thousand feet above the earth, my heart was warmed and thrilled by the way this book renewed my focus on Jesus.”
Mandy Johnson (mandybakerjohnson.com)

I Am would be a wonderful book to use as a devotional for believers at any stage in their walk. I don’t think one could read it and not be moved to worship.”
Persis Lorenti (triedbyfire.blogspot.com)

“I emphatically endorse this book. Pastors should have it for its value as a commentary, small group leaders should integrate it bi-annually and new Christians should build their devotional library around it. ”
Clint Letterman (cpletter.blogspot.com)

“This is a quick read, written in an easy to understand style, but make no mistake, there is meat here, and a gospel feast… Highly recommended!”
Alex Houston (reformed-at-last.blogspot.com)

“If you read one book in depth in the coming months, outside of scripture, get this one. In this book you will come face to face with Jesus.”
Benjamin Wilson (bnjcwilson.com)

“Iain breaks each one of these “I am” statemetns into a chapter and examines them. This was a very easy to read and understand book.”
Karen Lyons (lyonslady.blogspot.com)
