I received this book from BookSneeze several months ago and had the intent to read it and post a review by the following weekend.
The best laid plans and such…
In Kaleidoscope (a word that becomes increasingly more difficult to spell each time I write it), With chapter headings such as “Dem Bones” (related to Proverbs 15:30) and “Heavy Lifting” (related to Proverbs 10:29), Clairmont takes readers through a journey of the book of Proverbs using humor while still sticking to truth. At the end of each short chapter, she gives readers a few questions to consider (called “Bits and Pieces”) and related verses from other parts of the Bible.
I loved the fact that she laid it out from the beginning that she isn’t a Bible scholar, doesn’t know Greek or Hebrew, and sometimes makes up words that don’t exist! That sounded like something I would say, and it let me know from the beginning of the book that this wasn’t going to be some dry study of Proverbs that left me more confused than when I started. She was funny yet thought provoking, and her ideas seemed to be Biblically sound. I haven’t read anything else she has written, but after reading Kaleidoscope, I will check out more of her titles!
