“But like when you’re doing a jigsaw, you don’t need every piece of the puzzle to see the big picture. All you need is enough important parts that stand out and fit together.” — Alex McLellan. A Jigsaw Guide to Making Sense of the World. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2013, 19.
In his new release, McLellan argues, “The ordinary jigsaw puzzle serves as a guide to making sense of the world” (19).
