Where Are You Feinstein? by Carolyn Hayes

Are You Ready?

Where Are You Feinstein? by Carolyn Hayes is a Christian tale just perfect for any age. It’s question “Where are you?” forces us to examine exactly where am I in my walk with Jesus? Many Biblical characters were asked this question so we are in good company.

The foundation of our life is crucial. If we build our lives on anything but Jesus, we will be in trouble.

Where Are You Feinstein? entertains whilst making us examine our faith. Will we hear “well done good and faithful servant” at the end of our life? Self examination is a good thing to do. We do not want to miss Jesus because we were distracted.

It is perfect for anyone from child to adult. The answers to the questions are all backed up by scripture.

Illustrated by Angelo Rivera, there are some beautiful and strong images. My favourite was of Jesus as a baby and on the cross.
