Book Review: Kaleidoscope

I recently became part of a program called Book Sneeze run by Thomas Nelson Publishing.  They send me a book for free and I read and review it.  Here’s the first of many book reviews to come!

Kaleidoscope: Seeing God’s Wit and Wisdom in a Whole New Light by Patsy Clairmont

Who doesn’t love the book of Proverbs?

How can you read Proverbs and not glean some insight and wisdom you can apply in your life today?

In her new book, Patsy Clairmont takes a look at this “in-your-face” book and uses her wisdom and sense of humor to provide a new and different way to look at some key verses in Proverbs. In each of the 33 short chapters, Clairmont provides a verse to think about and shares stories about how it applies to her life or our lives today. At the end of each chapter, under the heading Bits and Pieces, there are a series of questions that relate to the chapter and are really meant to help further understanding and application about the reading. Also at the end of each chapter is a section called Held to the Light in which Patsy lists other verses that relate to the topic addressed in the chapter.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Patsy writes in a conversational manner that really allows her wit and sense of humor to shine. I loved this fresh new look at some of the verses I love most, they were each presented in an informal, relatable fashion. The chapters in this book are short which make it perfect for a morning devotion and the questions give you something to think about through the day. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who wants to dig a little deeper into the book of Proverbs and/or is looking for a new devotional book.

**Among other places, this book can be purchased at Amazon and Christian Book Distributors**
