The Ology by Marty Machowski

We have just finished reading The Ology as part of our breakfast reading. It has been an excellent, and enjoyable, addition to our collection of children's Christian books.

The Ology

The Ology is a systematic theology for children, and is a perfect supplement to the children's Bibles that we already use.

There are a number of sections covering different aspects of theology, including: Sin, the Church, Christ, the Holy Spirit and the End Times. Each topic has a number of sub-topics so that each area is covered in helpful, but not overwhelming, detail. For example, The Ology of the Church includes topics such as Worship, the Lord's Supper, Baptism, and the Persecution of the Saints.

We love the illustrations.

My husband has been reading a chapter a day to the children, and we have both been impressed with the content. These are not easy topics, but they are presented accurately and clearly. In addition, there are Bible verses to read for each chapter, and a number of additional references for further study. We plan to look at these in more detail next time we read it.

We have all appreciated the beautiful and memorable illustrations. Our youngest, in particular, has found these a helpful hook to get her interested in the chapter.

The Ology has been a helpful resource for us as a family already, and I hope that using it as a basis for further study will be of great benefit to us.
