Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont

Patsy Clairmont, author of Kaleidoscope: Seeing God’s Wit and Wisdom in a Whole New Light” combines the words of Proverbs with personal experiences to create real life situations explaining how the Bible, specifically Proverbs, relates to us today.

I loved this book, and I found myself finishing it in the span of a day. Her short chapters of wisdom did not seem “preachy,” rather she gave experiences in her life that can relate to the various verses in Proverbs. Although I don’t often find myself reading books based upon Bible verses (I’m more of a historical fiction fan), I don’t have a single complaint about this book, and if she were to write additional books, I would definitely purchase them.

The chapters each had a moral, or a specific theme they addressed, then at the end of the chapter there were questions which related back to the advice within the chapter. Also, there were various verses at the end of each chapter which served to re-affirm the words which were just read.

If there is anyone looking for a book to offer words of advice to those in the 20 something age bracket, this would definitely be the book. Just starting out in my career, I feel like this book will be helpful in pointing me in the right direction in my life. I will continue to read the words of Patsy Clairmont, as I feel a second read of the book will bring me new insights that I may have missed in the first reading.

This book was provide free of charge by Thomas Nelson publishing and reviewed free of charge by me.
