This 800+ page collection offers a feast of philosophical and theological insight and includes all of Colborne's full-length book releases to date. Readers will finish this collection understanding the full depth and beauty of Colborne's philosophy, which depicts God as in sovereign control of all events in existence, including all human activity — hence the title, 'Puppets'.
The following books are included in the compilation:
GOD'S GRAND GAME
This is Colborne's magnum opus and is a systematic presentation of his philosophical worldview. The book is the result of more than 10 years of research and reflection in relation to the divine sovereignty versus human free will predicament.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF A MAD MAN
Part spiritual memoir, part philosophical exposition, this was Colborne's debut book release, and offers a compelling insight into the man behind the philosophy.
THE GOD ARTICLES
A diverse selection of Colborne's dialogues, discourses, prayers, poems, and reflections on matters of spirituality and religion. Includes fascinating accounts of major events in Colborne's spiritual life such as his Holy Spirit baptism and miraculous street healing.
A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS
Includes twelve essays spanning Colborne's career, from his first class undergraduate thesis on musical meaning, to his Heythrop essays discussing leading figures from the history of philosophy, and several of his later essays, including An Almighty Predicament: A Discourse on the Arguments For and Against Christianity and The Only Question You Ever Need Ask.
Presented with striking artwork, Puppets offers a chance to fully understand the life story and philosophy of an original thinker whose ideas represent a vital and timely contemporary contribution to the history of thought.
