I try to avoid shell scripting wherever possible (and when it's not a trivial script). That it has its foot in both the command line and programming leads to some oddness. Unless you are very careful, it's easy to produce something which may run fine in a simple case but there are edge cases where things either break or introduce security holes. Spaces in filenames can break things, carefully constructed filenames can cause data loss or worse. Much better, in my opinion, to use a proper programming language where variables are variables and treated as such explicitly.
