My name’s Steven and I’m the author of more than a dozen books in the philosophical theology genre. I have also written more than 400 articles and made many videos discussing all of the big problems and questions of philosophy and theology.
The title of this blog – ‘Perfect Chaos’ – refers to the idea that while existence is seemingly chaotic, in reality everything unfolds in perfect accordance with the will of God. That’s an idea at the heart of my philosophy, and if you explore some of my work you’ll come to understand why I believe it to be true and the many implications of this perspective for life and faith.
I’m a first class BA (Hons) graduate of the University of Westminster and hold a postgraduate certificate in Philosophy and Religion from the University of London. Perhaps more important than my academic qualifications is my spiritual journey, which has involved immersive explorations of both Eastern and Western spiritual practices and philosophical traditions, as well as several spells in psychiatric hospital following episodes of psychosis.
My spiritual journey has led to some unusual insights which I share on my blog and in my books and videos. These insights, which centre upon the divine sovereignty versus human free will predicament, have proven helpful to many people. I hope that my work will impact your life in a positive way as well.
You may have noticed that most of the images on this blog are black and white. This reflects the fact that God’s will is black and white: He guides some and leaves others to stray; some people are righteous and some are wicked; we will all go to either paradise or hell. I encourage you to do your utmost to ensure you are in right relationship with God. He’s just a prayer away.
