Editorial Reviews

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.” "

Stephen Shortridge is an artist who writes like he paints. Deeply romantic, mystical and impressionistic, "Deepest Thanks, Deeper Apologies" recognizes that faith is more than "churchy" clichés and platitudes. Authentic faith is gritty, puzzling and enigmatic.

In this short devotional book, Shortridge's style is conversational; his voice gentle and his insights deep. Reading "Deepest Thanks" is like sitting down with the author/artist over a cup of coffee. But be warned: Those looking for a practical step-by-step guide won't find answers here. Neither will those uncomfortable with doubt and mystery. Instead, the book's greatest appeal is to spiritual thinkers who have wrestled with their faith and admit to honest doubt. Those readers will realize they have a friend in Shortridge.

Written by an artist, "Deepest Thanks, Deeper Apologies: Reconciling Deeply Held Faith with Honest Doubt", by S.C. Shortridge, reflects the brushes of a paintbrush, as Shortridge explores how we can have a faith that often is brushed with shades of doubt in our life.

Though we may often find ourselves feeling as if something is wrong with us, if we doubt, sometimes it is through our doubts, that we will find ourselves questioning not our Father, but really ourselves and in the process, go on that much needed push forward to understanding and discovering, what is it that our Father in Heaven, is calling for us.

Living a life of faith, isn't really a life of mystery, but of discovery and as the reader is taken away by Shortridge, brush style of writing, that as the author shares, "Faith that is only religion is too fragile, too fussy, and too demanding to become real faith".

"Deepest Thanks, Deeper Apologies: Reconciling Deeply Held Faith with Honest Doubt" is reminiscent of the challenges of creating a work of art....it could be a simple sketch, the brush of watercolors across the canvas to capture the light of the object at hand, or the precision of a finely crafted oil masterpiece, this is an encouraging, personal look at an artist and believer, into exploring how to have an honest walk with our Father in Heaven, while being challenged by truths and doubts.

This book is a good idea and well presented and thought out. The illustrations are fine, but some of the theology is a big "new age" is and somewhat vague general, though as he says his theology is somewhat vague like impressionist art, that may have been the intention. But where is the dark side of things? He obviously has doubts about God, but where is the deeper probing and dark doubt? Still, it is a nice good and concept.
