Review: This is a wonderful coloring book. I love the pictures and the way that the devotional and the pictures are connected. What better way to reflect on the devotional you just read, than color a picture about it? This really helps you to comprehend and remember what you read and what Jesus was referring to.
The parables Jesus gave to the people were important and things that we need to know. However, some of them were difficult to grasp. This not only gives the explanation of what Jesus was talking about, but the pictures bring it to life.
I love that a relaxing hobby, like coloring, can also be used as a way to deepen your relationship with Christ.
Recommendation: I would recommend this to any Christian who loves to color. I love mine and you will too!
