With this book, Anna Case-Winters provides a reconstruction of the doctrine of God based on process theology and feminist thought. She takes a fresh approach to the problem of theodicy (the justification of God's goodness and omnipotence in view of the existence of evil) and contends that traditional attempts to address this problem are unsuccessful because they do not discuss the meaning of omnipotence. Once the dispute is recast, it is not a question of how much power is attributed to God, but what kind. Case-Winters provides a coherent and theologically viable doctrine of omnipotence that avoids the pitfalls of traditional beliefs.

Anna Case-Winters is Professor of Theology at McCormick Seminary. She has served the wider church in many capacities, particularly in ecumenical relations. As Chair for Christian Unity in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), she exercised leadership in dialogues with Lutheran, Anglican, and Roman Catholic communions. Case-Winters has also served the global church through the work of the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC) in many capacities through the years and is currently Moderator for Mission and Ecumenism. She is the author of God's Power: Traditional Understandings and Contemporary Challenges, Reconstructing a Christian Theology of Nature: Down to Earth, and A Theological Commentary on Matthew.
