New House- built-in speakers but no receiver. HELP!

I have no idea what I'm doing, so let me start there.
We just moved into a newer house that has built-in speakers. In the living room, there are 2 front speakers and 2 rear speakers. In the dining room, there are 2 speakers. On the upper deck, there is one speaker. On the lower deck, there is one speaker.
All of the speaker connections are in the living room (there are a lot of them). I'm guessing this means that I need one receiver, and whatever I'm playing on the TV there will play everywhere (there are volume controls for all of the speakers in the dining room and decks).
What I'm trying to figure out is what type of receiver do I need? I don't see how I can hook up all of these speakers from the connections in the living room wall to the back of the receiver.
Any help for a newbie?
