Book Review: ScriptureDoodle and ScriptureDoodle God’s Promises

15 Dec

scripture-doodle-hiScriptureDoodle: A Six-Week Devotional Experience (David C. Cook, October 2016)

With inspiring exercises and prompts, this unique interactive guide introduces readers to a creative connection between Bible study, artistic expression, and worship.

Often, in the busyness of life, Christians forget that God created them to enjoy creativity. With guided instruction and completed examples, this beautiful book invites readers to draw closer to God through their own art.

More than a coloring book, ScriptureDoodle is a combination of Bible study, creative expression, and artistic community with artwork shared online at #scripturedoodle. Exploring topics such as being generous, finding rest, and facing grief, ScriptureDoodle gives the heart the creative space it needs. This book stimulates the reader’s imagination and helps integrate God’s Word into everyday life.

Some of the most incredible stories in the Bible are of God’s promises and faithfulness to His children.

ScriptureDoodle God’s Promises refreshes believers who are feeling burned out or stuck in a rut in their relationship with God. Each of the creative worship prompts in this interactive guide includes biblical encouragement and ideas for worship through art. Artist April Knight includes creative lettering tips, color ideas, and completed examples to inspire readers to respond to promises in Scripture related to trust, faith, and the power of God’s Word in all circumstances.

This unique blend of Bible study and creative expression provides the opportunity to connect with God as Creator in a new, life-changing way.

My Impressions:

Is the coloring book craze reaching saturation point? Recently a friend shared coloring book fails (The Golden Girls, really?), but the two ScriptureDoodle books put together by April Knight are a coloring book WIN! By combining the creativity God gifts all His people with (we are made in His image after all) with His Word, you can have days and days of meditating, creating and resting in His presence. The two books are designed as 6-week devotionals with each exercise to be completed daily. But I can see the user coming back to past designs to experience anew the comfort and refreshing that God promises. Besides providing scriptural guidance, Knight also helps with the fine points of doodling. I have a friend that loves adult coloring books and has been looking for something exactly like the ScriptureDoodle books. I guess I have my Christmas shopping done with this one!

I recommend both of these books who want to unleash their creative urges and spend some quality time with God.


Audience: older teens to adults.
