Summary

God's Grand Game is the magnum opus of philosopher Steven Colborne and contains a comprehensive exposition of his worldview. 
  
The new atheism movement has highlighted many of the theological problems related to 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 mistaken 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 looks not only 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.

    Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.  
    Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.   
    When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have wronged them, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.   
    Who I Am With You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.
