Encounter the mystery of our Faith and unlock the treasure that awaits you!

International bestselling author Scott Hahn teams with children’s author Maura Roan McKeegan to tell the story of siblings Peter and Julia. On an otherwise normal day, the children unexpectedly receive a package delivered to their family’s doorstep with an envelope addressed to them. Inside, they find an invitation, and within the box they discover a scroll with seven clues. As the mystery unfolds, Peter and Julia, along with older brother James, embark on a treasure hunt that leads them into a deeper understanding of their Catholic faith. Along the way, the answer to each clue reveals another secret about the greatest gift God has ever given the world.

With beautiful illustrations by renowned artist Mercè Tous, Seven Clues will captivate the imagination and bring together generations of children with their families, teachers, and caregivers as they explore what the words, signs, and symbols of the Church reveal about the life and Resurrection of Jesus.
