On each page of Finding Jesus, the Son of God is hidden in a crowded scene–from a rock concert to a wedding to a grocery store. The objective for the reader is to “find Jesus” in the detailed illustrations–and it’s not always easy, what with Jesus’s propensity for walking on water and turning the other cheek! Darkly funny and pleasantly challenging, this interactive children’s book for adults makes the perfect gift for believers and skeptics alike.
Every week, I choose a non-romance book to read. This time I went a different route all together. When I read the blurb for Finding Jesus by Winston Rowntree, I was won over instantly. The creative pun of the title just might be my favorite.
Finding Jesus is like the classic Where’s Waldo, with a Holier twist. The book is filled with fun illustrations, each hiding Jesus. The details and use of color makes the search tricky, yet enjoyable. I did not find the book to poke fun at or mock religion, and I would have no problem gifting Finding Jesus to any of my religious friends or family. I think they might even enjoy the witty title.
