I got it as a gift for my sister, who's really into drawing and coloring. One thing I really liked about this specific book the quality of the pages! The pages are nice and thick. You can use various coloring mediums on the pages. The pictures, inspirational sayings and patterns are great for some coloring therapy! I recommend this coloring book for all adults who enjoy crafting, and doodling!
crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is such a pretty book black and white and will be a beautiful keepsake when it's all filled in.March 23, 2018crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This beautiful coloring and hand lettering book is a creative way to reflect on the message of the book Jesus Calling. There's a lot of detail to the pictures, definitely well beyond a child's coloring book, and the pictures themselves are very inspiring, but it's not one of those adult coloring books that are overwhelmingly detailed. The paper is fairly thick so you don't have to be overly concerned about bleeding through, and the pages are perforated for easy removal. I like the quotes that are included on the lettering pages. This is such a pretty book black and white and will be a beautiful keepsake when it's all filled in.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review. My opinion is my own.
GHott5 Stars Out Of 5This elegant book is one Ill not only use, but also purchase as a gift!!March 20, 2018GHottQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm so glad I chose the Jesus Calling Adult Coloring Book as my first experience, though I'm now not sure others will measure up to the experience I had with this wonderful book.
I've not read, nor had I ever heard of, the Jesus Calling series so hearing that there were quotes from the book meant little to me, however, I was excited to know this could be a part of my devotional experience. Taking time to reflect on God's word and love for us is sometimes difficult because my mind is always racing, however, I found with these beautiful pages and supurb designs I found myself relaxing into His love as I peacefully colored.
This elegant book is one I'll not only use, but also purchase as a gift for others who are looking to take a break and circumvent the rat race.
Kris BushOrlando, FLAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Good Starting PointMarch 14, 2018Kris BushOrlando, FLAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I truly enjoyed this colouring book. Not only does it work to allow us to creatively colour but it helps with learning how to hand letter. I even tried my hand at lettering while colouring through it. First, I started by tracing what was already on a page then after the first two words I started to get the hang of it and free handed the rest of what I wanted it to say. I think this was a good call.
It's quite similar to the type of sketches that are inside journaling bibles although the difference much resides in the fact that because it is a Jesus Calling edition all of the quotes are not straight from the Bible and are sayings of Sarah Young.

The Consulting WriterAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Encouragement We Can All Benefit FromMarch 12, 2018The Consulting WriterAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love to sketch and color. It's really relaxing and allows my brain to dump my worries to the side and just focus on the art. That's the idea behind adult coloring books. From the series, Jesus Calling, comes the coloring book in the same vein, with encouraging words and verses throughout. These aren't simple coloring pages that one might find in a children's coloring book. They are intricate and beautiful on their own, devoid of color, but I can imagine how gorgeous they'd look when full of color. The pages are filled with flora or fauna. The cover is really attractive with metallic blue highlights. The book is 10 x 10" size. The font is large enough for most readers and the coloring shouldn't be too difficult for most. The back page is a hand lettering practice page. If you aren't a fan of journalling in your Bible, but like the colorful ideas behind it, this would be the next best option.
To color with marker or colored pencil? That's the question. The pages feel thick enough, but on trying it, Sharpies definitely bleed through and standard markers come close (you can see a hint of the color but it hasn't actually gone through). I'd recommend using high quality colored pencils and perhaps place card stock or a piece of cardboard between pages as you're coloring in order to ensure the other pages remain clean until you're ready to color them.
This book normally retails for $20, but is being sold on most websites for $10. I think this would make a nice gift for anyone, family or friends, believers and nonbelievers alike. Sure, it has Bible verses, but it also has some encouragement. We can all benefit from that these days, right? I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
