Bring the words of the Bible to life by colouring in a beautiful range of illustrations inspired by favourite verses from the NIV – the world’s most popular and trusted translation of the Bible – all of which are ideal for prayer and meditation.

This is a unique and beautiful adult colouring book that combines the Bible’s life-giving words with vivid and charming pictures by illustrator and artist Stu McLellan.

Meditating on scripture can take many different forms. One wonderful way of doing it is through colouring: the patient task of bringing the page to life through colour can embed the text deep in our hearts, bringing us into the presence of God in a new and profound way.

Stu McLellan's colouring book has a variety of landscapes, portraitures, close detail and broad strokes. It's been a revelation in those moments when I have found time to sit, reflect and listen.

What he provides are ink sketches with lots of white space, which will enable colourists to work as they please. This is not painting by numbers by any means, it calls for selection and attention to the image at hand.
