Jesus Christ is described in the Bible as the Prince of Peace and the Christian Gospel has provided hope and meaning to spiritual seekers for two thousand years. In this time of great global uncertainty, the teachings of Jesus are arguably more important today than ever before.
Author Steven Colborne, a first-class BA (Hons) graduate with a postgraduate certificate in Philosophy and Religion, has spent many years exploring the Christian faith in an immersive way. Colborne had a born again experience during a spell in psychiatric hospital in 2008, and since then has written over a dozen books exploring all of the big problems and questions of theology.
In an age when spiritual practices that are contrary to the teachings of Jesus are on the rise, Colborne has written Thanks Be To God, a concise book that will enable anyone who is interested in spirituality to get to grips with the core teachings of Christianity so that they can better understand whether they should accept or reject the teaching and person of Jesus.
Thanks Be To God contains 20 important passages of Scripture, with each passage accompanied by a short reflection from Colborne to offer context and insight. The book is ideally suited to people who are interested in exploring Christianity but feel daunted by the prospect of reading the entire Bible. The book would also serve as a great refresher for the lapsed Christian or as a thoughtful gift for someone needing spiritual encouragement.
Steven Colborne is the author of more than a dozen books in the philosophical theology genre. His work offers deep insights into all of the big problems of philosophy and theology, with a focus on the divine sovereignty versus human free will predicament, especially (but not only) as it relates to the Christian worldview.
Steven is a first-class BA (Hons) graduate of the University of Westminster and holds a PG Cert in Philosophy and Religion from Heythrop College, University of London. He was born in Cambridge, grew up in Abingdon in Oxfordshire, and currently lives in London, England. The son of an English father and a Dutch mother, Steven has had a remarkable spiritual journey which has involved immersive explorations of both Eastern and Western spirituality, as well as several spells in psychiatric hospital following episodes of psychosis.
Among other books, Steven’s catalogue of releases includes a compilation of academic essays (A Collection of Essays by Steven Colborne), a collection of prayers, poems, discourses and dialogues (The God Articles) and a systematic presentation of his philosophical perspective (God’s Grand Game: Divine Sovereignty and the Cosmic Playground).
