Coloring books for adults are the trend right now, so why not de-stress by pondering Scripture while you relax? Words of Faith: A Coloring Book to Bless and De-Stress might provide just what you need to slow down and meditate on an uplifting word and verse from the Bible while you create something beautiful. These 30 designs were created by monastics from the Community of Jesus, an ecumenical community rooted in the Benedictine tradition (Paraclete Press, paracletepress.com).

FILM REVIEW The Jungle Book


This stunning Disney fi lm with live-action and computer-generated imagery in 3-D is an adventure story that keeps us on the edge of our seats. It’s also a tale about a boy’s quest to discover where he belongs.


As a small child, Mowgli, now 10, was found alone in the jungle and was taken by a panther to be brought up by a wolf couple. Although the boy possesses quick movement, balance and cleverness, he can’t match the physical skills of his lupine siblings. In addition, a revengeful tiger blames the boy for an injury, making the jungle no longer a safe home for him. The animals decide that Mowgli should go back to live with humans. Along the way, the jungle dwellers discover how much they all need each other.


Director Jon Favreau makes the most of a skilled visual eff ects team. All the talking animals, as well as the jungle surroundings, are computer-generated. Neel Sethi as Mowgli gives an appealing performance, all the more impressive given he is interacting with digital beings (Walt Disney, PG—some sequences of scary action and peril).
