Deepest Thanks, Deeper Apologies (Library Edition) :  Reconciling Deeply Held Faith with Honest Doubt

   
Author: Stephen Shortridge 

For all who dare to be honest... Most Christians are content to spend their lives in churches where mystery is denied and doubt is unwanted. Where uncertainty is shunned and honest questions are stuffed into a corner, never to be brought out again. This audio book is for the rest of us. For those who live with distinct doubts . . . but whose passion for God remains deeper still. For those who have been confused by the world—and perhaps by our own desires—and still long to connect with a God who forgives and embraces us. For those who believe that our personal wrestlings can somehow make our faith mature—and our need for God complete. Sharing his own personal vulnerabilities with soul-stirring reminders for your faith journey, Stephen Shortridge delivers a hope-filled work—encouraging mystery rather than explaining it, affirming doubt rather than removing it . . . for all who dare to be honest.

Review:   
"The author uses light enunciation to deliver his thoughts on gratitude, thanksgiving, and doubt; a forgiving, loving God; and the four stages of faith. His delivery perfectly contrasts an open, childlike outlook with a self-centered mindset that exhibits an immature, rebellious heart in need of redemption. Especially convincing is his description of how a true relationship, with God or human, requires honesty without judgment or self-righteousness. He contrasts humility and pride and recommends candid reflection and personal insights to discover  whether one is “full of awe or full of self.” Shortridge also recognizes that every spiritual journey includes some fear and doubt. With warmth and clarity, he reminds listeners that God promises to “finish the good work He began in you.” "
