Hello! I'm Steven, a philosopher and author from Oxfordshire, currently based in London, England.

I see my main purpose in life as sharing the insights I have gained through immersing myself in the spiritual practices of many diverse faith groups. My spiritual journey has taken me from atheism, to agnosticism, to New Age spirituality, to Hinduism, to Buddhism, to cults, gurus, and therapists, to Christianity (first Anglican then Catholic then Evangelical), and finally to pure, simple and unshakable Truth. Phew!

If you're the type of person who scans profiles looking for qualifications, I have a couple of such things — a first class BA (Hons) degree in Commercial Music and a PG Cert in Philosophy and Religion. Honestly, though, I feel I'm not especially clever, but that doesn't bother me as I know God can use the least of people to achieve the most wonderful things.

Since 2012 I've been writing blog posts and books about all the big questions of philosophy and theology, and this has culminated in the distillation of my philosophical perspective into a single book. It's somewhat of a miracle that I've been able to write this book, because several spells in psychiatric hospital have taken a lot out of me. Still, the book is written, and I can now die happily, because it represents my 'raison d'être'. If you'd like to find out more about the book, search God's Grand Game for all the latest news.

The thing is, in a few billion years every part of my life and work will seem so insignificant that really any earthly ambitions I might have are just a load of old nonsense when seen in their proper context. How can anyone argue with that?

The single most important thing that I can leave you with is my belief that your consciousness is not tied to your body, so when you die, you will live on. You will never actually die. There are some very logical reasons why I believe this to be true, but I've already written way too much for an About Me page.
