I love that so many Christian coloring books are now becoming available for the adult colorist. This book is different from the other few that I have in that it includes not only specific verses from the Bible but also words of encouragement from hymns, preachers, teachers, and writers. The design is matched to the words and on the backside of each design, the full Bible verse, quote, hymn, and/or publishing cite is listed so you can look up the information for yourself. I also like that the artist attribution(s) are listed on the back, too.
The Bible verses are from both the Old and New Testament and are from a variety of translations, including: Holy Bible NIV, King James Version, “The Message”, and the New Living Translation.
The designs in this book are printed on one side of the paper (with full cite and quote information as mentioned above printed on the backside of each page.) The paper used is fairly heavyweight and is non-perforated. The binding is glued rather than sewn, so you will have to cut pages out of the book if you wish to remove them. A number of the design merge into the binding, so you will lose some parts of the design if you cut the page out. By “breaking” the spine a bit, I was able to get the book to lay fairly flat.
My water-based markers (Stabilo 88, Staedler triplus fineliners, Tombows dual end – both brush and marker points, and Pentel) do not leak through this paper at all. My Sharpies, Copic, and other alcohol-based markers do bleed through easily. My gel pens do not bleed through or leave a shadow but do require a little more drying time than with lesser paper quality. My coloring pencils work very well with this paper according to the type of lead (hard/soft) that I am using. I won't worry about which medium I use with the book but I will cut down and carry a piece of chipboard with the book in case I decide to use my alcohol-based markers.
When I received it, I eagerly began coloring. Flipping through the pages, I was impressed with the quality of the paper and printing. The pages are nice and thick and also one sided. This is important to me since I thoroughly enjoy coloring with brush pens, which often leave a lot of ink on the paper and therefore might bleed through thinner paper.
I really like how the back of each page has references to the scripture, song, or person who said the quote. It's fun to read through the hymn or delve deeper into scripture while coloring. There are also a good mix of easy to color pages and more difficult ones. I like the easy ones a little better personally but the more complex ones are a fun challenge.
Overall, I'm super happy with this purchase. My only suggestion for the authors and publisher is to come out with more books just like this! I'm going through this one quickly even though there are a lot of pages! I'll have to start hunting for my next book soon.
Here are a few of my favorite pages!
