About the Bible
The NIV Beautiful Word™ Coloring Bible employs the proven stress-relieving benefits of adult coloring to help quiet your soul, so you can reflect on the precious truths of Scripture. Perfect for all ages, the thick white paper with lightly ruled lines in the extra-wide margins, provides ample space for your own artistic expressions and journaling.
With the popularity of bible journaling still keeping the steam, the new NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible will be probably find interest with Christian women who are not artistic in nature per say but desire to take up some color pencils and draw within the lines of a design already incorporated within the pages of a bible. This is exactly what this bible offers to someone who cannot draw free hand but loves to color.
Within the pages of this bible, you will find plenty of scriptures that have been designed in the margins in such a way that all you will have to do is grab some color pencils and let your creativity spark. Some of the design are smaller than other and will leave space for you to jolt down some personal thoughts on the scripture. You will also find numerous pages with journaling space for you to write prayers, expand your comfort zone when it comes to art, or simply take notes during the Sunday sermon at church.
I am a bible art journaler and I was curious about this bible. I can see how it could speak to certain people who are not prone to doodle and be creative. However, for me – even though I have seen some interesting design in it – I find that this type of bible (because they are other ones like this out there) limit the personalization of the journaling bible. Mind you some might think that I over exaggerate on this since no everyone would use the same colors to express their creativity and this is true. In some way your bible would express your own personal creativity.
One other thing I have found with the pages of this bible is that they are thinner than the ones in a regular bible journaling. Consequently, you will have to be extra careful in the type of crayons and/or pencils you will use in it because sometimes it can bleed on the other side. I would suggest to select higher quality coloring pencil when working through it and to protect the pages under when adding color.
The bible would make a perfect gift to someone who desire to color within the pages of a bible without being super creative and artistic. I find this bible would make a perfect gift to a wife, a daughter (tween and up), a mother or a friend whom you think will benefit in having such a bible and can be uplifted by spending time in coloring specific verses.
The NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible is available for purchase at your favorite store, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
