We’re always looking for new ways to encounter Scripture—to go beyond the usual format of reading, reflection and questions. Many people have been rediscovering lectio divina, a way of contemplating Scripture practiced by monks since the Middle Ages. As an aid to lectio, or just a fun new way to pray with Bible verses, this book combines contemplating Scripture with coloring, helping the reader go into a sacred space where they can encounter and connect with the reading more deeply.
This coloring book was created with the bestselling author of Praying in Color, Sybil MacBeth. Sybil writes and leads workshops about using doodling to contemplate Scripture. This book will help readers, doodlers, and colorers hear what God might be saying to them personally in a specific passage and then meditate further on it. It is a perfect way for individuals, families, and groups to learn more about this ancient practice, paired with coloring.
“Readers of all ages, experience, andreligions will find this a fresh, invigorating and even exhilarating way to spend time with themselves and their Creator.” — Publisher’s Weekly Starred Review
