Product Description

Some people make theology complicated. Here's what you need to know.

Theology can be intimidating, full of big words and lofty ideas. Yet theological terms aren't just for professors to argue about in the ivory tower. These powerful words have important meanings for the everyday Christian, too. They aren't reserved for academic theologians. These terms belong to you!

In 50 Most Important Theological Terms, Moody professors David Finkbeiner and Brian Tucker offer helpful explanations of the –isms and –ologies of Bible doctrine that you've heard of but aren't sure what they mean. Beyond mere explanations, the authors help you understand why these terms matter, not just for classroom textbooks but for the book of real life. You'll learn about questions like:

  • How is Jesus fully God and fully human at the same time?
  • By what means was sin passed to everyone from Adam?
  • Do humans have only a body and soul, or a body, soul, and spirit?
  • Is repentance from sin part of saving faith?
  • And much more . . .

Despite what you may have heard, theology actually is relevant. Don't miss out on the meanings of theological terms. Get the answers from experts and let your confusion turn to understanding.
