The Parables of Jesus Coloring Book Devotional by Laura James & Katara Washington Patton

Worship with art as you color-in 46 stunning illustrations based on the parables of Jesus, each with a corresponding devotion and prompts for spiritual reflection and artistic exercise.

God's creativity is everywhere. It's mirrored by His creation--even evident in the illustrative teachings of His Son. This stunning book of 46 soulful, colorable pictures is based on the parables of Jesus. Color the parables, be immersed in their valuable lessons in a unique way, engaging your own creativity, and strengthen your faith.

Also included are 46 uplifting devotions, one related to each parable, and 46 thought-provoking prompts for meaningful reflection and artistic expression. These pages provide worshipful exercises to inspire the artist in you, with space for illustrated prayer and journaling.

My review:

  I am not a big coloring person, but this is a very neat book. It is a combination of a coloring book and devotional book. Each devotional is based on one of Jesus' parables, and is followed by a picture to color about that parable. This is a big book with a lot of content in it.

 The devotionals are very well written, and I enjoyed having a whole book of devotionals based on Jesus' parables. The pages to color are very well done, and anyone into coloring books will enjoy it. Each coloring page is blank on the reverse side to avoid any bleeding through onto that page.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
