My Thoughts:

Another complimentary copy of a coloring book for grown-ups from FaithWords in my treasure box, with no services or obligations offered in return.  "The Parables of Jesus" is a combination of a devotional and coloring book.  Each coloring design is preceded by a devotional from the Gospels, focusing on one of Jesus' parables.

I loved the devotionals for the most part.  However, Lazarus and the rich man isn't a parable.  This story is set apart because Jesus didn't refer to his teaching as a parable with His usual key word choices, and He also referred to the poorer of the two men as Lazarus--never done in any other parable.  So that bugged me--big time.

And as for the coloring pages, I'm picky.  I'm ultra-picky.  So I didn't care for these pages.  The faces were a bit creepy for me, and nearly every design included a drawing of an person--so I didn't find anything that made me want to bust out my pencils.

BUT, I'm ultra-ultra picky about my coloring books, so take a peek at some sample pages before you decide on "The Parables of Jesus" coloring book and devotional.  Until the next book...

Mark Your Place,
