Patsy uses the theme of stained glass to discuss life as a Christian in Stained Glass Hearts. Patsy fits 192 pages into 13 chapters and an about the author. She fills those pages with insight, humor, wisdom, and encouragement. Patsy claims that this is a more serious book than she is normally known for writing, but even so her humor peaks through the more serious bits. Much like the lead that holds stained glass works of art together, is Patsy’s humor amidst the petals of insight, the leaves of encouragement, and the stems of wisdom, holding her word pictures together so that the reader can feast their mind on the ideas she has fused together.
The first four chapters are more or less a picture of what our need is and the last nine chapters are Patsy’s suggestions about how to fulfill that need from what she does and/or has done to fill hers.
At the end of each chapter she makes very specific suggestions of things to read, look at, places to visit, things to listen to, and things to do. Knowing that people can find many of these things online, she suggests using a computer to see and experience many of them.
I have read many of Patsy’s books in the past and those that I’ve owned, I’ve shared with others including this one. This book is worth the time to read, especially if you enjoy Patsy’s writings, but be ready to devote time and mental energy to it.
