Alex McLellan loves to tell others about the Hope believers have in this broken world, particularly on the topics of:

  •  Encouraging Christians – with reasons to believe
  •  Equipping Christians – with reasons to share
  •  Engaging non-Christians – with reasons to think

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Alex completed his BA in Communications from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago (‘96), and he was awarded an MA in Philosophy of Religion from Talbot School of Theology in Los Angeles (‘02).


Sometimes the world doesn’t make sense and we wonder if there’s any purpose to it all, any meaning to our lives. Figuring out life is like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. The good news? You don’t need every piece of a puzzle in place to see the big picture. You just need enough important parts that stand out and fit together. Christianity is reasonable because it resonates with how we see and experience the world. We’ll never have absolute certainty – about anything, but we can have confidence in the truth of the Christian worldview.

One of the hardest parts of talking about Jesus is knowing where to start. A Jigsaw Guide to Sharing the Good News begins at the beginning and paints the big picture in 3 minutes in 3 easy steps: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? This pocket-sized resource will make sure you’re always prepared to share.


How do you reach the unreachable with the good news of the gospel? This beautifully illustrated coffee table book is a remarkable fusion of evangelism, apologetics and the arts. An engaging story of one girl’s journey to put life’s broken pieces back together, the reader will see the big picture and understand the message of hope found in Jesus Christ.
