Master the scriptures and have fun doing it! Find hidden messages, work through puzzles, and unscramble clues as you learn the essential truths found in scripture mastery passages. Perfect for seminary, Sunday School, family night, personal scripture study, or missionary preparation, this book of puzzles is anything but trivial!

This book includes scriptures from the Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants. The authors start by sharing tips to help solve the puzzles. At the back, there is a reference and hint section which gives scripture references and the key to solving the coded puzzles. The very end includes an answer key so you can make sure you solved them correctly!

I love puzzles so I was excited to get my hands on this book! These puzzles are challenging and fun. My children and I have enjoyed doing some of these. Many of them are too challenging for them to figure out on their own so we all need to work together. I love the variety of puzzles included and some of them are new to me. There are so many ways and situations where this book can be implemented. It provides a fun and creative way to study the scriptures!
