Utilize persistant Divine Might and go to town. I recommend picking a Diety with a good two handed martial weapon to maximize Power Attack The Inquisition Domain has a very nice spell list, with things like Domainate Person, Suggestion, etc which can be game changing if played correctly.
The Church Inquisitor has 4+Int skill points per level and a decent skill list.
Adding in the bonus domains from the Contemplative can make this build over the top powerful. Some suggested domains include:

- Good ability, great spells like Teleport, Dim Door, Fly, etc

- Imp Init, good spells like Haste and Time Stop

- Nice ability, Poly Any Object at 8th level

- Blah ability, Anti-magic field and Mind Blank as spells

- Blah ability, Disintegrate at 7th level

- Good ability, good if used correctly spells

- Add skills to class list, good spells, Invis, Poly any Object and Time Stop
