Good Questions by Tom Shepherd
"No topic is off limits for the wise and witty Rev. Dr. Thomas Shepherd as he takes on some of faith's thorniest issues. In his own words, “Good Questions represents questions (not always friendly) and answers (not always “correct”) drawn from more than 15 years of accumulated letters, notes and e-mails delivered to my Q&A column at Unity Magazine®.”
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 humour 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.
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.”
