When God Goes To School
During today's conversation on Back Porch Theology - which is the very first episode of our second season so please forgive Ally, Dr. Howard and me if we sound gob-smacked with grateful joy but we just can't help it because we're over the moon that we get to continue this adventure with y'all - we're going to begin an 8-week series that revolves around our Redeemer so we're calling it "Wild About Jesus." We're gonna put the "Christ" into "Christocentric" baby! Now for those of you who've just recently joined this spiritual shindig, please know our goal here on Back Porch Theology is to dive into substantive biblical exegesis and spiritual formation but not be too stuffy in the process. That's why we call it Back Porch Theology - because while you can hang with your friends on the front porch, those places tend to be all neat and tidy in light of their visibility to neighbors and passersby. But the Back Porch is a place where you can totally relax with your closest friends and talk and rock to your heart's content. Plus, remember the Greek root words of theology are theos, which refers to God, and logos, which refers to words or conversation. So theology was never meant to be a boring, academic pursuit, it was meant to be lived! The bottom line is, here at BPT we're all about having honest, biblically sound conversations about God, punctuated by lots of stories and a belly laugh or two - it's a pretty safe place to learn more about our Creator Redeemer and hopefully lean more fully into your relationship with Him. So please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible - unless you're driving or cutting your own bangs, of course - and come hang out on the porch with us!

Back Porch Theology Goes Home-Christian Tour to Israel-March 21-31, 2023

Lisa Harper's Back Porch Theology

You're invited to hang out on Lisa Harper's back porch and enjoy conversations about all things Jesus, theological anthropology, biblical orthodoxy, Spanx, the merits of Tex-Mex and more!

We believe this podcast will help you dive deeper into God's word, understand that the gospel is great news for everyday life, not just when viewed in the light of eternity, and that God is for us, that He's always been in the process of redeeming our inherent value as imago Dei and restoring us into a vibrant, intimate relationship with Him.

And rest assured, this won't be a one-sided conversation because throughout the podcast, Lisa will be inviting friends, including some brilliant theologians and academics to join her in substantive but decidedly unstuffy segments. So come on, y'all grab some coffee or sweet tea and join us on the back porch!

My favorite!!

I learn so much from this podcast! I love Lisa Harper and the way she explains Scripture. I hope many people listen in and Holy Spirit would burn that fire of reading the Word and getting to know God in a deeper way! ️

Thank you

I look forward to your podcast every week. I feel like you and Ally and Dr Howard are my friends, even though I'll probably never meet you. You have challenged me and brought new life into the scripture for me. You all can make me laugh and cry in the same episode. I also have the same desires to be all that God has created me to be and to fall more deeply in love with Him as I go about my days.Blessings to you all, Yvonne from Lancaster, Pa
