Details of my New Book

Posted by

Over the last few months I’ve been putting together a new book. In the past, I’ve published my books with an assisted publishing company, who have coordinated the process and done a lot of the work in terms of production. With my latest book, I’m project managing the entire process, including coordinating with editors, designers, beta readers, distributors, etc. If I’ve been a little quiet in recent weeks, it’s because I’ve been working hard on this project.

Early in 2019 I’ll be publishing a post revealing the title of the book and the cover art, but for now I just wanted to give you a taster of what you can expect from the book. So, without further ado, here’s the blurb:

The new atheism movement has highlighted many of the shortcomings of Christianity and other religions, and as we move into a ‘post-truth’ age, many people are wondering whether there is still a place for God in society. Has science consigned God to the evolutionary scrapheap?

In this bold and insightful book, British philosopher Steven Colborne strongly argues that God exists, but also criticises many of the key doctrines of Christianity and other world religions that present, in his view, a warped understanding of the nature of God.

Tackling subjects such as free will, suffering, morality, and the afterlife, Colborne presents a grand vision of reality with God at the centre. The book not only looks backward at the religions that have shaped our world, but also to the future – a future in which Colborne believes science, technology, and a new kind of religion, will all have a meaningful role to play.

Thank you for reading!


  1. Steven, this sounds like a book I will very much enjoy. I completely agree that doctrine and dogma get in the way of people meeting with God and there must be thousands upon thousands of people who hunger for God in their lives, but have been put off from getting in any closer because of how churches and religion appear to them. I didn’t sign the list because I think I must already be on it, as I already have the pdf, and I’ve left a review on Amazon for ‘The Philosophy of a Mad Man’. I’m loving the moody and intense photograph on this post! 😀

    1. Hi Lesley! Lovely to hear from you and I’m so very grateful for your support and your interest in my writing.

      I agree that there are many people who are disheartened with established religion but also have a knowledge (or at least an inkling) that God does exist. I hope that my new book will be of interest to such people and anyone who thinks deeply about who or what exactly God is (and of course my favourite subject of the relationship between the human will and God’s sovereignty).

      I can confirm that you are on the mailing list already. Very pleased to hear you’ve left a review of The Philosophy of a Mad Man on Amazon, I will head over there right now and have a read!

      Thanks again, Lesley, you’re a star! 🙂
