I AM THAT I AM – Tracing the Footprints of God by Christian author Judy Azar LeBlanc is a must read and one of those books everyone should have in their collection. The author has presented a comprehensive book that gives a full spectrum overview of the eight Covenants given to humanity by God, which includes an in-depth discussion and analysis of the full parabolic, healing, and divine ministry of Jesus Christ. Systematically tracing the “footprints of God,” as noted in the title, Judy Azar LeBlanc focuses the reader on who God is by revealing His character and design for humanity since the beginning of time. With extensive research, the author includes maps, illustrations of famous archeological sites, over seventy-five commentaries from well renowned biblical scholars, and a complete list of over fifty names and meanings of God - this book covers it all. This well written and theologically sound book will give the reader a deeper understanding of the love God has for humanity and who the great I AM THAT I AM is since the beginning of time. A wonderful, highly recommended read.
Since the day that God created man to function as His representative, Scripture reveals that He has always placed man under a covenant. God’s desire to communicate with man can be traced through the records of the covenants God has made with His creation since eternity past. Between the first Edenic Covenant and the last New Covenant of grace, God instituted the Adamic, the Noahic, the Abrahamic, the Mosaic, the Palestinian/Deuteronomic Land Covenant, and the Davidic Covenant. The key word “covenant” is not found in Scripture until God promises to preserve humanity and nature through Noah, “But I will establish my covenant with you; and you shall come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you” (Genesis 6:18). The first of these great eight recorded covenants God entered into with man was with Adam in the Garden of Eden, otherwise known as the Edenic Covenant. The definition of a covenant as we know it to be is a solemn agreement that is characteristically unalterable and permanently binding. It means to bind oneself by an oath, which of course implies faithfulness, and can be either conditional or unconditional. Whereas a conditional covenant guarantees that God will complete His promises if man obeys the stipulations of that covenant, an unconditional covenant guarantees the ultimate fulfillment immutably depends solely upon God for the fulfillment of His promises. With the exception of the Edenic and Mosaic Covenants, the remaining six, the Adamic Covenant, the Noahic Covenant, the Abrahamic Covenant, the Palestinian/Deuteronomic Land Covenant, the Davidic Covenant, and the New Covenant have all been unconditional. A point of interest is drawn to the relationship of each of God’s covenants with its corresponding dispensation by Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer. Dr. Chafer defines the term dispensation as “a period which is identified by its relation to some particular purpose of God – a purpose to be accomplished within that period” (Systematic Theology, 1978, Volume I, p. 40). Though the dispensation may end, the covenants themselves continue.
"Very Comprehensive; the exhaustive research that went into preparing I AM that I AM is readily apparent. This book is an invaluable resource for lay people, clergy, and scholars."
Dr. Paul E. McCracken
Great Reference Book
"I Am That I Am" is not intended to be a coffee table book. It is for those who have a serious desire to draw closer to their Lord by learning more about Him. It is a book that Bible students will want to keep near to hand, one that will become frayed through much usage, one that is organized for easy reference.
Most believers are aware of two covenants between God and His people, the Old Covenant and the New Covenant, a.k.a. the Old Testament and the New Testament. Actually, there have been eight covenants and Judy walks us through each of them. Interestingly, on page 87 of this 469 page book, having skillfully laid the groundwork, she arrives at God's final, ultimate covenant, Jesus Christ. From page 87 forward it's all about Christ. There will never be another covenant. We are indeed living in the "end times" and have been since that babe was born in Bethlehem. Visualizing God's slow but progressive revelation of Himself as a stairway to heaven, with the advent of Jesus we have reached the top step. All that came before was His preparing the foundation.

This unique and comprehensive book is a biblically based, theologically sound teaching offering a full spectrum overview of the eight covenants given to humanity by God, as well as an in-depth analysis of the parabolic and miraculous healing ministry of Jesus Christ.

All this and more are compiled in this user-friendly volume to include commentaries from over seventy-five renowned biblical scholars that make this book not only a wonderful resource, but a must have.
Filled with scripture, illustrations and maps of recent excavations to relevant location, the author unveils God’s timeless and intimate involvement and absolute love for humanity. From the beginning of Creation, the author displays God’s desire and design for the entire human race. This wonderful and well-written book clearly and concisely gives readers a complete summary and understanding of the Bible and who God is to humanity. Enlightening and inspiring, this book reveals to the reader God’s Spirit, nature, essence, divinity, omniscience and omnipotence, in a way that cannot be questioned; He is the great I AM THAT I AM.
If you ever have wondered Who God is and questioned His love for humanity, after delving into this book with it’s (its) rich foundation from the Word of God, you will have no question as to how much God loves His creation and, you personally, for that matter. To come to an understanding of knowing who God is, gives the reader confidence and encouragement to believe and rely on the fact that God is who He said He is. And as the author notes, “…that you can take to the bank.”
A must have for your literary collection, this book comes highly recommended to any believer in Jesus Christ that yearns and desires for a more intimate knowledge of who God is personally to them, and who God is in regards to the entire human race. This book is a great gift for anyone who values clear and theologically sound research with a solid foundation from the Word of God. The author has done an excellent job in presenting the truth of Scripture in one easy to understand reader-friendly volume.
