    See if you can solve the clues in each box or identify which prophet is shown in the picture. When you are finished, you should see a “magic square”—meaning that each column, row, or diagonal line with four squares in it will have one Book of Mormon prophet, one Old Testament prophet, one New Testament prophet, and one prophet from the Doctrine and Covenants. (See answers on page 37.)
