Although I am a huge fan of newspaper puzzles, I have often felt a lack of stimulation when doing puzzles that come to me in paperback form. They are usually either extremely easy, [boring!], or so abstract that only Einstein or Freud could reach the correct conclusions!I was pleasantly surprised, however, when I cracked open Inspirational Zingers Jumble by Christopher Hudson.You know those wonderful 'Jumble' puzzles that you get in the national newspapers, that contain a secret message when you have finished the entire puzzle? Well, with Hudson's book, you can enjoy those popular puzzles while being encouraged by inspirational thoughts when you obtain the message in the end!This delightful puzzle book contains 6 different kinds of 'Jumble' puzzles: * Jumbles * Double Jumbles * Mystery Person Jumbles * Word Search Jumbles * Super Jumbles * Criss-Cross JumblesI've carried the book around with me for the past several days, and have found the puzzles quite addicting! I've worked them in between client research; while on hold on the telephone; during commercials while watching television in the evening; and even during a well deserved quiet time in the bubble bath!I highly recommend this book if you enjoy working puzzles. They aren't so difficult that you need assistance to solve them, and yet, they each and every one offer you a moment of enlightenment when you solve the final inspirational quote.I give this book five [5] stars! *****Christopher HudsonChristopher Hudson is a contributor to many Bible reference and entertaining books, including 'Brain Busters', 'Mysteries of the Bible', and the popular 'What the Bible Says About...' series.Hudson lives in northern Illinois with his wife and children.***A copy of this book was provided to me by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. for review.

Inspirational Zingers Jumble is a book of all sorts of Jumbles (word finds). Jumbles are a kind of word scramble that takes bible scriptures and scrambles them. You then arrange the letters that are circled to form a word that completes the Zinger. Inside, you'll find over 100 Jumbles. The categories are regular Jumbles, Double Jumbles, Mystery Person Jumbles, Word Search Jumbles, Super Jumbles, and Criss-Cross Jumbles. If your family is really into bible trivia and puzzles, this would be a good activity for a road trip or a family game night. Some of the puzzles seemed a bit difficult for my little guy. In fact, I was stumped a few times myself! So make sure you have older kids or adults to help out.

I love words and The Word. That makes Inspirational Zingers Jumble perfect for me. It is a puzzle book that keeps me focused in and on the Word. Each puzzle links to a Bible scripture or principle. Each puzzle also contains a word to to unscramble, a mystery word to identify, and a clue or two to help me when I'm stumped. It is an engaging way to meditate. There are six different kinds of jumbles in the book: standard Jumbles, where one just finds the scrambled words and then uses clues from them to discover the mystery word; and Double Jumbles - with two mystery words; Mystery Person Jumbles; Word Search Jumbles; Super Jumbles; and Criss-Cross Jumbles. There are literally hundreds of puzzles to keep me puzzling for days on end. Inspiration Zingers Jumble is a product of Tyndale House Publishers and was created by Christopher Hudson with the help of Megan Chrans. The book contains 200 puzzles and their answers. I received this book free from Tyndale Press. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

Inspirational Zingers Jumble by Christopher Hudson is a "must have" for anybody that enjoys puzzles. You don't have to be a Bible scholar to enjoy and solve these puzzles. There are six different variations of the "jumble" puzzles: Jumbles, Double Jumbles, Mystery Person Jumbles, Word Search Jumbles, Super Jumbles, and Criss-cross Jumbles. All six variations require you to unscramble several words. The difference is in how the unscrambled words are used and the clues given. My favorite puzzle type was the Super Jumble. These puzzles provided clues like most of the other jumbles, but all the clues were listed in random order so the puzzler didn't know which clue went with which word. These were the puzzles I found most challenging and enjoyable. This was a good collection of puzzles that I highly recommend. ***I received this book free from Tyndale Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program.
