This provocative book examines some of the principal attributes traditionally ascribed to God in western theism, particularly omniscience and omnipotence. From his discussion of a number of related topics, including a comprehensive treatment of the problem of the relations between divine foreknowledge and human freedom, Kenny concludes that there can be no such being as the God of traditional natural theology.

Industry Reviews

"Ingeniously and closely argued."--Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"A fine book, small but remarkably rich in its combination of historical erudition, overview of recent discussion, and valuable original argument. It deserves close attention from all who care about the philosophy of God."--Philosophical Review
