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.

About the Author:

Anna Case-Winters is Professor of Theology at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. Case-Winters served for two terms on the General Assembly Committee on Ecumenical Relations of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) and she has preached and lectured throughout the denomination.

From Library Journal:

After considering Calvin as the classical model and Barth as a modification of that model, Case-Winters discusses alternative process and feminist models of God's power and goodness. She proposes a process-feminist synthesis through an image of God as Mother with the world as child in the divine womb, an empowering image that coherently relates both divine and human power and freedom. Highly recommended for seminary libraries and for academic libraries supporting departments of religion.
