God’s Grand Game is a book released by Steven Colborne through Tealight Books which speaks about his view of many contemporary debates relating to philosophy and theology. It was released in 2019 and has been popular with readers ever since. At 268 pages, it is able to be read in a few days and is very easy to read for a book in the genre.
It is a unique read that puts forth the ideas that he has about ongoing debates in the realms of philosophy and theology like free will, scriptural authority, and Calvinism. It does not use overly complicated language and the author is not looking to impress anyone. I would have liked the book to be more in depth, but it is definitely a good practical overview of his beliefs.
God’s Grand Game is not a systematic work, though I would argue it is an attempt at one. The author looks to address many of the contemporary issues, but does not go in depth or attempt to argue his case against a set belief. He presents what he believes and why, the rest is left up to the reader. It is not an argument against any belief, the book is an open statement. It is reminiscent of a manifesto, though more passive.
I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is looking for something unique to read in contemporary philosophy and theology. I enjoyed the book and I look forward to seeing more from publications from Steven Colborne and Tealight Books.
