Ultimate Truth: God Beyond Religion
Publisher: Tealight Books
Ultimate Truth: God Beyond Religion was philosopher Steven Colborne's second book, the follow-up to his 2012 debut The Philosophy of a Mad Man.
Colborne has had a fascinating spiritual journey, which began with atheism and then took him on an immersive exploration of both Eastern and Western philosophy. This short book, originally released in 2013, but now released in a revised and updated second edition, serves as an excellent introduction to Colborne's life and thought.
In the opening chapters, Colborne explains some of the reasons why for a long time he was unable to embrace the Christian worldview. He proceeds to present his vision of the nature of the God/world relationship, discussing subjects such as God's attributes, suffering, morality, the human mind, and more. The author also shares some insights into his mental health journey, which impacted his philosophical perspective significantly.
Simplicity and clarity are hard to find in philosophy, but Colborne has a gift for expressing his perspective in a straightforward way that will surely be thought-provoking for each and every reader. Ultimate Truth: God Beyond Religion represents a significant contribution both to Colborne's body of work and to the broader field of philosophical theology.
