Have you ever wished that someone would explain theology in a way that doesn’t require a degree or a dictionary? Maybe you’ve listened to a sermon and it seemed like the pastor was speaking another language. Or perhaps you’ve thought that the notes in your study Bible could use a commentary of their own. From imputation to justification, theophany to theodicy, keeping all these concepts straight can be a challenge for any believer. This is a short podcast about long words. Every week, Barry Cooper sheds light on a different biblical or theological term, using helpful illustrations to apply it to your life. Listen to this week’s episode to expand your understanding and deepen your faith, one word at a time.

I love it!

I’m very thankful for this podcast. I drive a lot for my job because I work in a trade with long periods of drive time even up to an hour and a half. Though the episodes are short, they pack a punch theologically. I’ve learned a lot and I would recommend this podcast to any true believer.

Excellent Thoughts and Theology

This a good, quick podcast that explores a wide variety of theological topics and combines it with life experiences that demonstrates the point being made. Episodes are 3-7 minutes which is great for short Terrence and commutes!
