I really enjoyed the Wonders of Creation coloring book so I was thrilled to see the Wonders of Creation Holy Bible in my favorite version; the NIV!
I admit there’s something a little disconcerting about coloring in a Bible! Doesn’t it just seem wrong? Trust me, you get over that quickly enough! I wasn’t sure exactly how it would work since Bible pages are typically really thin. While the Bible pages are in fact traditionally thin, the coloring pages are much thicker. I still would only use pencil or crayon and not markers because it will bleed through to the drawing on the other side.
There is a lay flat binding which does help with coloring but since the drawings go all the way to the binding, it’s still kind of hard to get right on the edges.
There are fifty pages to color so it will take quite a long time to get through them all. I like the variety of images offered and how they are strategically placed throughout.
I like that you can even color the front and back binding pages as well as the presentation page. There is no shortage of drawings to choose from!
The pictures are found throughout with their corresponding Bible verse. I love that there is a drawing to really absorb and ponder on the verse. I found myself thinking about it the whole time I’d be coloring that page.
There is a beautiful pink ribbon to mark your pages. While normally I complain that there aren’t more features, I actually like the simplicity of this one. The focus is on the coloring and the Bible itself. It’s a way artsy people will dwell on the word of God without needing extra commentary or devotions throughout. It’s more about just meditating on the word.
The Wonders of Creation NIV Bible would make a wonderful gift this Christmas!
