Scripture Doodle Books by April Knight


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 Thoughts:

I was sent a copy of both Scripture Doodle and Scripture Doodle: God's Promises. To me, they make me think of something that might be used in a ladies' class that might meet on a Thursday(or another day that isn't official "church gathering" time). It mixes teaching you how to doodle and create art with a Bible lesson. April gives you instructions on how to do things, from super basic and up. These books are mostly about the art, though it is meant to create art that keeps the focus on God. The lessons are truly like a Christian art class within a book, and I think that's awesome.

The lessons aren't super deep, but they are nice reminders. Each day gets a Bible verse, along with the mini devotional(around 3-9 sentences), and then an assignment for that day's art. Obviously, it doesn't take long to read the lesson, and most of the time is spent attempting the art assignment.

These are both beautiful books! I believe anyone that enjoys creating art, or wants to learn how to do it better will enjoy these books. I must admit that I'm a bit fascinated by them.

*I was given free copies of both books.
