Editorial Reviews

Review

"Understanding a broad survey and history of the Bible is like putting together the pieces of a large jigsaw puzzle. This is how Bill Jones looks at it and it is a good approach especially for those new to the Bible. In Putting Together the Puzzle of the Old Testament, Jones writes in a popular style for a large audience to help them understand the basics of the big picture of God's word." (Chris Reeves, Truth Magazine, January 2015)

Format: Paperback
For years I have struggled with understanding the Old Testament. I had decided not to read it anymore for I had reverted to only looking for the "promises" instead of grasping the history and God's intention throughout it all.

Sharing my decision with some friends (elderly retired Bible translators) they encouraged me to read Bill Jones book "Putting Together the Puzzle of the Old Testament". It has taken a month to read his book and do the assigned reading. I have loved every minute of it and feel it has helped me to finally establish a time-line that makes sense to me. I can see God's good heart throughout the whole Old Testament. And I now have a grasp on Biblical history (something that I thought was only available in a Bible School).

The author has cleverly avoided a lot of "fluff" (theological ramblings and diversions) and kept the central theme clearly highlighted -- to make God's plan clear as His story weaves its way through the ages. Definitely worth the effort.

For me, this book has definitely put together the puzzle of the Old Testament!

This book is wonderful for new Christias or mature Christians. Bill Jones does a great job in making the Old Testament understandable and accesible for all. Highly recommend it especially for those who want to get a handle on the Old Testament.

Dr. Jones does such a great job organizing the Old Testament in this book! I've known Bible stories all my life and was even fairly familiar with the story of the Old Testament; however, this book truly allows you to put it all together and to remember it in an organized manner. The way he breaks the Old Testament into different eras makes it easy for even young readers to understand. I also had the privilege of taking a class with Dr. Jones about the book. I can attest to his great understanding of the Bible and ability to portray in every lesson a true love for God's Word and its power in our lives! In his words, we need to not only "master the Bible" but also allow the Bible to "master us."

Dr. Jones book Putting Together the Puzzle of the Old Testament was an enlightening read. It was simple yet insightful. His command of the breadth of the material was impressive. Our ministry, Your Next Step Institute has enjoyed excavating valuable nuggets from the mine of this resource. Our students refer to and teach from this text in their own churches and small groups. You need this book in our arsenal. Dr. L. Douglas Dorman, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Get this book for middle school through adult. It is such a great resource. It is an easy to read outline, summary and explanation of the Old Testament. The hand drawn maps are GREAT... simple yet very accurate and thorough. I did this book with 10 women last summer and the response was overwhelmingly positive! Now we are offering in our church. There is a companion New Testament book I intend to read soon.
