Review: Finding Jesus by Winston Rowntree

Finding Jesus by Winston Rowntree
Release Date: October 28, 2014

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.

*I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

Once she realized she could never win his heart from Ariel, Lynnie aimed her sight on more realistic options, like Cory Matthews and the members of NSYNC. Now nearing her 30s, Lynnie is living her happily-ever-after in a small New England town. She shares her castle with her very own Prince Charming and their 2 (fur) babies. When she is not reading for pleasure, Lynnie is a freelance editor and writer.
