About this ebook

An Almighty Predicament is the perfect book for deep thinking people who are trying to decide whether or not they should commit to Christianity.


Christians will tell you that there is only one way to have peace with God — a relationship with Jesus Christ. But for many people, the Christian worldview is not intellectually satisfying, as there are so many aspects of Christian doctrine that don’t seem to make sense.


In this 70 page essay by British philosopher and author Steven Colborne, the arguments for and against Christianity are weighed up and scrutinised, with passages of Scripture cited and personal testimony expounded. At the heart of the essay is the free will problem, which for Colborne is the make-or-break issue when it comes to deciding whether or not one should accept the Christian worldview.


Written from an impartial viewpoint, the essay examines the Christian worldview respectfully and with an open mind. After reading all of Colborne’s arguments on both sides of the debate, readers will feel better equipped to make a decision about Christianity for themselves.
