We often talk about God being all-powerful, strong and able to do anything and everything, supreme over the whole universe. But to what extent is our view of God influenced by the way we see power used and abused in the world? Have we lost touch with the message of the gospel that God is made known through his weakness more than his strength (1 Corinthians 1)?

Greg Boyd looks briefly at the way the church has viewed and interacted with issues of power throughout its history, challenging us to question whether the God we worship is really the God of the Bible, or if we are merely making God in our own image…

How does our view of God and his power affect the way we relate to others, and the way we view God’s mission in the world?
