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!
