Book Review: “A Jigsaw Guide to Making Sense of the World” @IVPress

 

I just finished Alex McLellan’s “A Jigsaw Guide to Making Sense of the World” (IVP 2012)

McLellan is the Founder and Executive Director of Reason Why International, a Bible teaching and apologetics ministry. He also serves as an associate with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and Josh McDowell Ministries, giving presentations at churches, camps, colleges, and schools.

McLellan obviously knows a few things about talking to non-Christians about the gospel. In fact, the biggest strength of this book is that the ideas presented in it are clearly and cleverly explained; you could give this book to any of your friends and there’s nothing in it that they wouldn’t understand—and they’d have a smile on their face the whole time.

While the book isn’ perfect (the use of the pun “truth decay” should be a punishable offense), it’s entertaining, insight, and occasionally even brilliant. And  I wouldn’t hesitate to give it to my seeker friends.

Leslie Keeney is getting her Masters of Philosophical Studies at Liberty University. She is interested in atonement theology, moral apologetics, and how myth, narrative, and pop culture can reveal the best of man's universal moral intuition. She is both modern and post-modern (and the postmodern part means she's OK with the paradox). Leslie lives in Lynchburg with her husband, two kids, and two cats.
