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.
As of August 2021, I am no longer posting on Perfect Chaos, and have instead transitioned my writing activities over to Substack.
Substack enables readers to subscribe to newsletters and other content by their favourite authors for a small monthly or annual fee. It’s a great platform and I warmly invite you to take a look, sample some of my content for free, and consider subscribing to join the community and continue to enjoy and support my work. I post a new article exclusively to my Substack subscribers every Friday.
Perfect Chaos will remain online, but will be more of an archive than an active blog. To everyone who has contributed to and supported Perfect Chaos over the years, thank you so much. Please do join me over on Substack as I continue my writing journey.
