With hopes of leading Catholics to a deeper search for Christ, a new puzzle book from Ave Maria Press challenges readers to expand their interaction with God's mysteries.
"I open the book with a quote from Proverbs 25:2, 'It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out'," said Matt Swaim, author of Catholic Puzzles, Word Games, and Brainteasers: Volume 1.
"Properly understood, the idea of God as a mystery shouldn't cause us to throw up our hands and stop searching him out; it should draw us to engage with him and get a window into his magnificence," he told CNA.
Catholic Puzzles, which will go on sale Sept. 22, contains interactive word problems such as anagrams, code scrambles and crypto quizzes. The puzzles empower readers to learn more about saints, the mysteries of the rosary, Holy Scripture, and Church doctrine.
