Radical contingency. Four chapters on the teaching of the omnipotence of God

Radical contingency. Four chapters on the teaching of the omnipotence of God

From a theological point of view, that what is, is only that way because God wants it to be that way. How is such a contingency compatible with evolutionary theory? What criteria are relevant for the two different concepts of the world as omnipotent on the one hand, and creation on the other? Can the idea of an omnipotent God be upheld in view of the scientification of the world and culture understood as an expression of social construction? What role does faith play?
