Christmas Review & Giveaway - NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible

I think giving a Bible as a Christmas gift is not only a great idea, but it makes for a truly meaningful gift which they will use every day. And, if the person on your gift list is someone who enjoys coloring . . . especially a teen or adult who has taken up coloring, the NIV, Beautiful Word Bible, which Zondervan sent me for review, makes the perfect gift!

NIV, Beautiful Word Bible
Published by - Zondervan

Favorite Features -
  • 500 illustrations throughout the Bible for you to illustrate!
  • Illustrations are "in-text", so the illustrated verse, is where you'll find it in the Bible.
  • Wide margins leave lots of room for taking notes or adding your own illustrations.
  • NIV for ease of understanding.
Zondervan says; "Be drawn into God’s Word through a fresh, creative expression of the beautiful words of God. Crafted on high-quality paper and balanced with inspiring full-color art and blank space, the NIV Beautiful WordTM Bible will encourage a deeper and more authentic quiet time. With 500 verses illustrated to help you see the rich diversity of stories, characters, prophecies, rewards, and hope contained within Scripture, you will discover wisdom to sustain you in every season, drawing you deeper into God’s life-changing and inspired Word."

I think this Bible makes a wonderful gift for the creative people on your list. And, by being able to color and illustrate in your Bible, it may also encourage and help develop a deeper interest and curiosity in God's Word - all good things!  Add a nice set of colored pencils and you will have a gift to be treasured by those on your list who receive it!
