Imagine Heaven the way the Bible describes it--a place of exquisite beauty brimming with marvelous detail and intricate patterns; a special dwelling place free of corruption and sin; and a place of both rest and enjoyable, meaningful work.
Let the power and majesty of Heaven fill your heart with joy as you color these 40 designs carefully interpreted from the pages of Scripture. Savor a respite from daily life as you read and meditate on devotions from best-selling author Randy Alcorn, a leading authority on Heaven. Picturing Heaven will offer you comfort and relaxation, while filling your heart with restful assurance that God prepares a special place for those who love Him.

Picturing Heaven is a devotional/coloring book duo. This book feels less like a devotional to me and more like the author’s ideas of how heaven may be. He talks about having a cup of coffee with Jesus or enjoying companion of a pet in heaven. It’s not that I disagree with any of those but I didn’t feel as if I were reading a devotional.
Another thing, I still wish that books like this came with a choice of Bible versions. People have different preferences and I’d honestly like to have the choice.
Last, the illustrations are lovely but I wish that the pages weren’t partially colored in with gold ink. I would have preferred the coloring pages to be completely void of color so I could make my choice of design.
Overall, I think this would be a good book to lay on your coffee table. The illustrations are lovely enough to frame if you can’t imagine hanging onto a coloring book.
