Jann Gray To Join Tyndale House Pubishers to Demonstrate Techniques of Illuminated Journaling at NRB 2016

Artist and author Jann Gray is slated to attend the 2016 National Religious Broadcasters Proclaim 16 International Christian Media Convention (NRB) which will be held February 23-26 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. During the event, Gray will be featured at the Tyndale House Publishers booth, demonstrating the art of illuminated journaling in support of Tyndale’s new Inspire NLT Bible.

Gray will appear at the Tyndale booth on Wednesday, February 24 from 11:00-1:00 p.m. CT
and from 2:00-4:00 CT.

“Generations of Believers have used the margins of their beloved Bibles to jot down sermon notes, cross-references, inspirational thoughts and meaningful revelations,” Gray says. “In ancient days, skilled artisans decorated sacred manuscripts and revered parchments with colored, gilded pictures, often incorporating involved miniatures, decorative initials or ornamental border designs into their works. These illuminations were intended to add beauty and reverence to the Holy text.”

As the leader in this newly rediscovered art form, Gray has been tapped by Tyndale House Publishers to endorse and represent their new Inspire NLT Bible. This fresh edition of the New Living Translation features single columns and wide margins, making it the perfect option for creative art journaling. It is the first Bible of its kind–with over 400 beautiful line-art illustrations, full and partial-page Scripture art, and illustrations which can be colored in to make each Bible unique, colorful, and customizable.

With her new book, Illuminated Journaling, Gray is leading the movement to encourage Christ Followers to stretch the boundaries of how they have typically studied God’s Word. Gray believes that by incorporating this new twist on an ancient art form into their regular Bible study, contemporary Christ Followers can experience a deeper, richer and more personal relationship with God by lending authentic and creative expression to their faith. In her book and through her workshops and tutorials, Gray demonstrates how to use stamps, stickers, line drawings, hand lettering, colors and font imitation to turn study Bibles into unique works of art, treasured heirlooms, and tangible reminders of what God is speaking through His Word.

“The Bible tells us that God created mankind in his own image,” Gray explains. “As imperfect as we are, we have built into us a creativity that is there because God made us in His image. If we want to know God deeply and worship Him genuinely, we need to incorporate that creative part of ourselves that has been made in His image. The Bible is God’s love letter to His followers. Illuminated Journaling provides a tangible way for us to express our love back to Him.”
