Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Why does it feel like most of the world today considers irrelevant the gospel we cherish and so faithfully proclaim in our churches? Why do our Christian responses fail to satisfy the heart quests of our neighbors? Does the shallowness of our neatly packaged answers alienate us from them and from each other?
More Questions than Answers offers the hope of reconciliation through exploring how we can develop listening relationships. Walking together in what becomes a spiritual accompaniment, we learn to attune ourselves to one another and to the Spirit within us. Then we dare to reach across the chasm that separates us and discover an authentic faith emerges.

"We all seek answers in our vulnerable humanity, and Eleanor Shepherd is not afraid to probe a God who understands the nature of our fear and wonder at the same time."
--Christine MacMillan
Director, The Salvation Army, International Social Justice Commission

"As Christians we can share some of our light with others--though we know it is not complete. In the end, Shepherd reminds us, it is the Holy Spirit that we are trusting, who enables us to understand or to trust that one day we will."
--Gail Reid
Managing Editor, Faith Today

"Read this book with care. Talk about how we witness with friends. Reflect on her important insights. Then, with love and sensitivity, test them in life. A book wonderfully written and powerful in what is said."
--Brian C Stiller
Chancellor, Tyndale University College and Seminary

"[Shepherd] reminds us of how we may follow the lead of Jesus in coming along side others and listening in ways that help them grow in their faith through our ministry of presence. It is a must read for counsellors, pastors, lay leaders, and anyone who has a heart for others."
--Jonathan S. Raymond
President, Trinity Western University

Eleanor Shepherd spent thirty years in ministry as a Salvation Army Officer in Canada and France, where she had many occasions to practice listening skills. She is now Quebec Director of Philanthropy for Opportunity International Canada.
