God’s Grand Game:
Divine Sovereignty and the Cosmic Playground
This is a 250 page book which I regard as my most significant contribution to the field of philosophical theology. It is the result of more than 10 years of study and reflection in relation to the divine sovereignty versus human free will problem. The book presents a thorough and systematic overview of my philosophical perspective with reference to the Christian worldview and other views of God.

The Philosophy of a Mad Man
In this 150 page book – the first book I ever wrote – I describe my turbulent spiritual journey (Part 1) and how I came to develop an extraordinary philosophical perspective (Part 2) that is causing many spiritual seekers to think deeply about the nature of God and the meaning of life. Originally published in 2012, this is a revised and updated version published in 2019. To see a list of retailers who stock the book, click here.
The God Articles
This 430 page book is a collection of dialogues, discourses, prayers, and poems, which I wrote between 2012 and 2020.

A Collection of Essays by Steven Colborne
This 250 page book features 12 of my academic essays on a wide range of philosophical and theological subjects. One of the essays is my first-class undergraduate dissertation in which I present a radical approach to music analysis. In my theological essays, I discuss the views of several important philosophers from antiquity including Heraclitus, Plato and others. The views of contemporary theological writers including Karl Rahner, Karl Barth, Ludwig Feuerbach, George Eliot and others are also discussed.

The Only Question You Ever Need Ask
This 80 page essay represents the culmination of a theological predicament that I have wrestled with ever since I first began to take the Christian faith seriously. In the book, I describe the single question on which I believe faith in the Christian worldview hinges, and I explore and answer that question with reference to Scripture and renowned theologians.

An Almighty Predicament:
A Discourse on the Arguments For and Against Christianity
This is a 70 page essay in which I set out what I believe to be the most compelling arguments for and against the Christian worldview. Expounding testimony and citing Scripture, I present arguments explaining why the teachings of the Bible are convincing, but also discuss the reasons why Christianity can be seen as absurd and illogical.

Ultimate Truth: God Beyond Religion
A relatively succinct and easy read, this 120 page book serves as an excellent introduction to my philosophy. In the book, I lay out some compelling arguments as to why the omnipresence of God affects nearly every area of theology, from free will, to suffering, to morality, and more.
