Book Review: Kaleidoscope: Seeing God's Wit and Wisdom In a Whole New Light

Who isn’t fascinated by kaleidoscopes and their beauty of colors mixed all together, twisting and turning to create something more beautiful than the last? Recently I have had the pleasure of reading the book, Kaleidoscope: Seeing god’s Wit and Wisdom in a Whole New Light written by Patsy Clairmont, acclaimed Women of Faith speaker. True to its name the book is filled with many colorful life examples twisted to include biblical application. Every reader of this book will be able to create a different, unique and beautiful experience from their reading and personal thoughts.

This book includes 33 chapters, each chapter including four sections:

• Selected verse from Proverbs,

• Stories, humor and real life examples of how that verse relates to our everyday life

• Bits and Pieces section--my personal favorite as there were many thought provoking questions

• Other scriptural references at the end of the chapter—I appreciated this as it helped reinforce the teaching of the selected verse

I would recommend this book to someone who is interested in a lighter, introductory study of Proverbs. The books format makes it easy to “pick and read”, an ideal devotional book for someone short on time. Another great use for this book would be as a small group resource for a weekly study in which participants could linger and dig deeper.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
