An Adult Coloring Book Like No Other

The Illuminated Catechism brings Luther’s Small Catechism to Life

Concordia Publishing House announces the release of an adult coloring book like no other. The Illuminated Catechism, released today, brings the tranquility of coloring together with the immeasurable comfort of Bible passages, short devotionals, hymns, and selections from Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. Each page is designed to invite readers to slow down and intentionally reflect on God’s Word as they bring the illustrations to life.

“As you color each illustration, take time to contemplate and pray about what you read. Before you know it, you will have spent many relaxing hours reflecting on God’s grace, praying, and deepening your understanding of the Christian faith,” says author Tony Cook. “You will become the artist of a unique and beautifully illuminated manuscript, but the time spent in devotional reflection is the true work of art.”

The Illuminated Catechism contains 44 beautiful illustrations. The thick pages allow readers to select the artistic tools that best fit their personal style, with plenty of white space provided for journaling and reflection.
