Coloring Books

Coloring books are definitely trending!
As it turned out, one of the surprise gifts of this past Christmas
Season was coloring books—for adults!

According to a recent Publishers Weekly report, the top five bestselling titles in paperback—running up to Christmas 2015—were coloring books for adults.
The Crayola company immediately jumped on the trend with a line of books and colored pencils in a kit called, “Color Escapes”—promoted as “easy to do and easy on your mind.”
And what’s more—the Bible’s impact on popular culture is being felt even here!
Publishers are rushing to create and distribute biblical-themed coloring books, putting art and coloring together to meet the popular demand.
What could be better than combining two favorite activities:
Coloring and the Bible!
Engage with the Book of Books—a Book of many colors!
