God saves the Queen


God saves the Queen

The death of the queen was supposed to mark the death of an outmoded way of thinking. But are we still longing for something beyond ourselves?


Steve McAlpine looks at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II as a metaphor for a much bigger change in society.

The death of the Queen was supposed to be the final nail in the coffin of a public acknowledgement of something transcendent, a God who orders the world. But instead what we’re finding is a longing for something more – something more than a materialist view of the world, or, as one writer put it, “something magical” to fill the void.

If we’re going to have a future without a personal monarch, Steve suggests, we’re going to have to find something worthy to put on the throne.


To celebrate the launch of the newest podcast in the Undeceptions Network, ‘Delorean Philosophy with Stephen McAlpine’, we are giving away a LEGO Back to the Future Time Machine! There are also 5 copies of Steve’s book Being the Bad Guys to be won. Click here to enter!

What is Delorean Philosophy?

Where are we going as a society? And will you be happy when we get there? Steve McAlpine is here to help you answer those questions.

If a Delorean time machine pulled up in front of your house – Back To The Future style – and someone offered to show you what the future would be like, would you be content with what you found? And if not, what could you do to change it? Thinking this through is what Steve McAlpine calls Delorean Philosophy.

Steve McAlpine is a well-known social commentator, respected theologian and popular author. Each week, he takes a crucial trend or event that’s playing out in society now and asks, “Where is this taking us?”

Rather than just pontificating, Steve then provides practical steps listeners can take if they want to change the future. That’s Delorean Philosophy.
