Book Description

Drawn from the author's popular column in Unity Magazine, Good Questions gives informative and provocative answers to many of the most gut-wrenching questions people ask as they navigate life and the spiritual path. Dr. Tom doesn't hold back as he creatively engages with readers in answering their questions about personal tragedy, God, evil, religion, the Bible, prayer, healing, forgiveness and death. He also tackles questions about homosexuality, bigotry and violence. But his goal is to help his readers think more critically and spiritually about their lives. As he asserts, "Heart and head must work together, for disparaging either will condemn humanity to fanaticism or ignorance."

As a columnist, Dr. Tom has become known for getting to the heart of the matter with a surgical command of the facts, a disarming dose of humor and an unbridled passion for truth. He engages creatively with his readers, prompting them to think critically about their lives, their relationships and the Divine within.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good food for thought January 19, 2011
By George
Thomas is an excellent writer who helps to clarify new age (thought) ideas. He is open and in my view probably one of the most honest theologians of our age. His questions and answers help clear up so much gray area that I had to purchase his other books currently available and Unity Magazine where he writes.
Good job, Thomas and just one question is left, when will your next book come out!

4.0 out of 5 stars we all ask them February 18, 2012
Good Questions: Answering Letters from the Edge of Doubt by Thomas W. Shepherd is a very thought-provoking and helpful book for Christians. It is the collection of letters "From the Edge of Doubt" which people from all over the world have written to ask for guidance from Thomas W. Shepherd, who is a minister of Divinity in the Unity Church Worldwide. The questions were addressed to Dr. Shepherd in his column in Unity Magazine. I found the questions to be ones most people ask in their search for faith, no matter what their denomination. His answers are both helpful and thought provoking, without taking any denominational bias and avoiding fundamentalist, automatic responses. This is a very good book and worth reading,
