Theology - the Live Sessions
||CleanViolence in the Bible - How do we handle it?||The subject of violence in the Bible and God's apparent complicity in it has troubled people for centuries.

||CleanFree Will - Calvin, or not? If not, what?||How do we think about God's power and sovereignty in the light of the human ability to make free choices? Do we really have free will at all?

||CleanHell - What does the Bible really say about it?||Hell features heavily in much modern gospel preaching, but is completely missing from the preaching of early Christians in the book of Acts.

||CleanJustification and Righteousness - What are they?||In this episode, Paul Callan takes a look at what the terms "justification" and "righteousness" really mean in the Bible.

||CleanAtonement - What really happened at the cross?||In recent years, the subject of the atonement has sparked major debate.

||CleanThe Gospel - It's bigger than you think||Is the gospel all about having our sins forgiven so that we can go to heaven when we die? Many of our gospel presentations are about little more than "sin management", as Dallas Willard said. In fact, the gospel of the kingdom that Jesus, Paul and the o||23 1 2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanTrinity - What's the big deal?||In this podcast from "Theology - the Live Sessions", the monthly exploration in theology from King's Church Loughborough, Paul Callan opens up the subject of the Trinity.

||CleanThe Bible - What it is and what it isn't||In this second session, recorded on 15th October 2017, we look at the Bible and how it works. It is a God-given book but also a fully human one.

A fantastic resource!!
I can highly recommend this podcast and Paul as a theologian, he comes with a balanced and well thought out approach to tackle head on some of the big questions we ask in our faith. Well worth a listen to get you thinking and learn about what the Bible means and how we can apply it to our lives.
Being present in the sessions has provided excellent revelations that have changed my life. Enjoyed the approach and discussion times.
