Sorry everyone I have been so behind on posting reviews so there will be several posted over the next week to make up for it. The reason why is I am still getting my oldest daughter packed for her missions trip and my youngest daughter ready for her time at church camp and I just finished getting our women’s magazine ready to go out. Which went live last week. You can check it out here.
Anyway, that said… on to the review.
Seeing God through the Eyes of a MotherColor with Friends. Be Drawn In to Scripture.Fear. Anticipation. Heartache. Joy. Mary knew the struggle of bringing new life into a harsh world. Still she willingly opened herself to be vulnerable to God’s purposes. From her simple faithfulness as a young woman to her soul-piercing anguish at the foot of the cross, journey with Mary through the sorrows and the joys of saying yes to God.Deepen your friendships as you gather around Scripture for coloring and conversation. Drawn In offers simple four-week Bible studies—perfect for groups or personal devotions. Coloring quiets your heart and mind so you can enter fully into Scripture’s stories. The Bible’s passion and personality come through in The Message, surprising new and long-time Bible readers alike. Discover the delight of being Drawn In.
I think this is a really fun and creative way to dig into the scripture. I like that it goes along side of the Message Bible. It gives it a unique way to study. Since it is a coloring study guide the pages are thicker so you can use most mediums that are available. Depending on how heavy the paint or marker is will depend on whether or not it will bleed through but for colored pencils its perfect.
I like how not only does it give the scripture but some notes from Eugene Peterson who created the Message version. It is designed to be used as either a personal study or for groups so its pretty versatile.
There are 3 in the Drawn In series right now: Mary, Ruth, and Esther. I hope he does more of these types of studies on other Bible figures. Maybe even other Bible women. It’s definitely different and I really enjoyed going through it.
