Picturing Heaven, written by Randy Alcorn and illustrated by Lizzie Preston, includes forty “hope-filled devotions with coloring pages.” Alcorn is a best-selling author and a leading authority on Heaven.
This book was designed to offer “comfort and relaxation while encouraging you with the restful assurance that God prepares a special place for those who love Him.” Alcorn hopes that coloring the pages illustrating Heaven will help readers to “develop a vital view of the magnificent New Earth God is preparing for us” He feels that pairing the reading of information about Heaven with coloring the pictures of it may lead readers to truly understand what it will be like. Each pair of pages includes a scripture reference, a short devotion, and a picture to color.
This is a wonderful book. The devotions are encouraging, and the illustrations are detailed and well-drawn. My only criticism is that the ideas of Heaven presented may not agree with that of all Christians. I would encourage one to look through the book before purchasing it in order to assess this issue.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys adult coloring books and reading about Heaven.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
