Book Review: Jesus Calling Adult Coloring Book

Jesus Calling Adult Coloring Book: Creative Coloring and Hand Lettering // This is based off of Sarah Young's immensely popular devotional called Jesus Calling, one of my favorite devotionals. Knowing know much the devotional itself has impacted my life, I was quite excited to get my hands on a copy of this new coloring book.

I'm not sure what I think about this coloring book. On one hand I think the colorable pictures are adorable and the traceable templates for hand lettering are lovely. On the other hand, I expected the coloring book to be filled with select readings from the Jesus Calling devotional. Instead, there were one or two sentence quotes, sometimes even just phrases, taken from the devotional and placed in the coloring book to be either colored around or hand lettered. I was simply expecting something different than what this coloring book actually is. That's not the coloring book's fault though.

All that to say, as far as adult coloring books go, this is a nice one! The size is large and there are about 100 pages to color. The designs are varied and fun to color. I liked how there's a guided tutorial and templates for learning hand lettering spread throughout the book, which is unique. For someone who isn't good at hand lettering, that was fun to try! 

If you're looking for a new coloring book that helps focus your day on God, this would be a good option for you! Just know that the pages don't have a daily reading or any kind on them and be confused like I was.
