TJ Johnson's latest book, Chapter & Verse, Crosswords And Other Puzzles, Genesis Book Two, is the second part of a puzzle series. It covers Genesis from Chapters 26 through 50, and includes a few puzzles that weren't fully reviewed in the first book, which encompassed Genesis chapters 1 through 25.
Many Bible Crossword books present clues which are located in various verses located throughout the entire Bible. This prompts a person solving these puzzles to repeatedly search from one verse in one book to other verses in different books, Old and New Testaments. This can be a little unsettling, unless the person already knows the answer.
The uniqueness of TJ's books is that her puzzles are designed to review information taken directly from specific assigned chapters and verses. Further, each puzzle concentrates on a particular Bible story, including verses that apply to the situation being depicted, ergo, the title of the series, Chapter & Verse. These books actually promise to help you review and sharpen your knowledge about a particular circumstance in Bible history which may be covered in one chapter, or several chapters. TJ says that you may think you know scripture that you read several days ago, several weeks ago, or even years before. However, it's recommended that you review the content often because it's so easy to forget some of the details.
These puzzles can be used as an alternative or addition for your personal Bible study, or even for group Bible study. They've been used successfully in presentation of Bible lessons during Sunday school classes that TJ teaches. She assures the puzzle lover that even though some are easy and some are challenging, they all provide a degree of fun as you study the Bible.
