I am that I am: Tracing the Footprints of God by Judy Azar Leblanc

Cover and Title: The cover picture is not a bright color but it definitely fits the title and content of this book. The title most definitely reflects the purpose of the book. I felt that the description on the back cover summarized the book very well; though there could have been more reviews added to make the book more appealing to the reader.

General Description: This is a book all about one person/deity....God..I am that I am. The reader will learn about his covenants, parables, ministry, miracles and titles. The book is divided into 4 main parts. Those sections are divided into smaller manageable and easily readable sections. Bible verses, diagrams, pictures and charts are spread throughout the entire reading sections. The large bibliography section in the back is invaluable for further and more detailed study.

Likes: What I liked most about this book was the small sections. It made it easier to read with smaller amounts; since this book is very detailed and overflowing with information. This also made it easier for the "average Joe" to read this book(in other words not clergy or scholars).
I loved the fact that alot of the verses were written out in the text; this saved some time in looking them up. I found this book a valuable resource to understand our God at a greater depth.    

Dislikes: This book is definitely more for lay people, those of the clergy or students in this field of study. My purpose was to use this in my homeschooling with my highschooler, but I don't think that will be happening. This setback is not the fault of the author, but this optimistic mother.  

All in all this book is a great resource to explore God and the Bible more fully. It would make a great gift for your pastor, teacher, or Bible student. ISBN:978-1-936746-10-1
