NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible – Book Review


NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible – Book Review

If you are looking for a Journaling Bible that provides you with plenty of room for recording your thoughts and creating your personal artwork but also provides you with hundreds of illustrated verses to color, I’m excited to share that Zondervan has just released the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible – a Bible that meets all of those needs!

The NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible is similar to the NIV Beautiful Word Bible that I reviewed earlier this year, with a few key differences. Here are the similarities and differences I noted:

NIV Beautiful Word Bible Cover - L

  • If you lift up the jacket cover, you’ll discover a wonderful surprise: like the NIV Beautiful Word Bible, the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible features Proverbs 3:5-6 beautifully inscribed on the front cover! (I normally keep dust jackets on my books but in this case, my Bible is flying solo!)
  • The NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible features a different presentation page than its predecessor – this one is bold and bright and looks like it has been custom colored (given you a peek at what’s possible!)

  • Now to the heart of the matter – the illustrations themselves. While many of the illustrations in the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible are the same as the ones in the NIV Beautiful Word Bible without the original coloring (which give them a totally different look!) – the editors have included new artwork as well. While some Scriptures include artwork, many verses primarily consist of decorative lettering, which allow you to add your own creativity to Scripture as you meditate on God’s Word.


In addition to these features, the single-column formatting of the text and the layout of the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible provides more room for journaling on the pages than most – the light but barely visible guidelines are there if you need them but fade into the background if you don’t – and the choice of the popular New International Version translation makes it easy to read and used by many study groups and churches!


If you long to add creative touches to your Bible but don’t consider yourself an artist – if you’re looking for an innovative way to worship God, to go deeper into the Word, or to memorize Scripture – or, if you enjoy coloring and want to meditate and pray in the process – then the NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible is the perfect Bible for you!

It’s also a beautiful Bible to give as a gift to a friend or loved one!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
