Theology in Simple Terms

As a new Christian, did you ever feel “stumped” by theology? Maybe you were listening to a sermon, and it seemed like the pastor was speaking another language. Or perhaps you picked up a study Bible and realized you may need a dictionary, too. From imputation to justification, theophany to theodicy, keeping all these concepts straight can be a challenge.

Simply Put is a podcast to help you build your Christian vocabulary. Each week, Barry Cooper explains a different theological term in clear, concise language and shares stories and illustrations that apply it to your life. Listen to this week’s episode to expand your understanding and deepen your faith, one word at a time.
