Theologian Tyron Inbody suggests a new understanding of God in this highly accessible introduction to Christian perspectives of suffering and evil. Interpreting suffering and evil as religious problems, Inbody analyzes and assesses the notion of an all-loving and omnipotent Deity found in classical theism. He concludes with a radical reinterpretation of the Christian Deity as a vulnerable, transforming God, one recognized by both process and Trinitarian theology.
