Jesus said 'I Am' Book Launch

Jesus Said I amSt Andrew's Church, Station Road, Melton, IP12 1PX

Friday 18 January. 7.30 pm

Join author Andrea Skevington launching her new book Jesus Says 'I am'.

Drawing on the imagery of the Hebrew scriptures, Jesus identifies himself as the ‘I am’ of Israel’s narrative.

Through sensitive retelling, thoughtful discussion and creative exercises, Andrea Skevington shows the transforming power of Jesus’ words. Each chapter focuses on a different ‘I am’ saying and offers ideas for reflection and response, including suggestions for further study, prayer and meditation, creative response, ‘life and service’ practical outreach, music and further reading.
