Overview


This book is for those of us who have failed at being doubt-free but whose passion for God remains steadfast. It's for those who have been confused by the world—and perhaps even by their own desires—and still long to connect with a loving God who forgives and embraces us. It's for those who wonder at how our personal failures and uncertainties can make our faith mature —and yet who can believe that somehow these wrestlings also make our need for God complete. Combining incredibly candid reflections and insights from the author with rich reminders for every man and woman's spiritual journey, Deepest Thanks, Deeper Apologies springs from a deep desire not to explain mystery, or to remove doubt, but to encourage mystery and raise doubt—for all who dare to be honest.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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.” "
