The Ology

Monday, November 09, 2015

The Ology by Marty Machowshi is a beautifully written and illustrated book that dives into the deep issues of theology— that is, the study of God. Sometimes the topic of theology can be intimidating for even adults, and even more so when we think about approaching the topic with our children. The Ology is written in such a way that it brings the timeless truths of who God is and tells those within a story that will intrigue children of all ages. 

The story begins when Carla and Timothy are exploring their centuries-old church and they discover a hidden door. Behind the secret passage is a paper-wrapped book with a note explaining that the book is a rare, nearly forgotten telling of who God is. The rest of the book contains 71 unchangeable truths about God and other doctrines surrounding the Bible. Each new truth is illustrated with colorful, imaginative pictures that will draw your child into the text. Sprinkled among the illustrations are scripture references, great for older children who are looking to dig a little deeper. The resources contained in this book are invaluable— a glossary to explain important Bible words, discussion questions for every chapter of the book and even an answer key to go along with those questions!

While written specifically with children ages 6 and up in mind, the resourcefulness of this book is not limited to children. I have already learned so much from just reading through it once. I cannnot wait to go back through and re-read each truth, spending a little more time digging deeper into the scripture that accompanies them. This would make a great Christmas gift, an excellent gift for your children or grandchildren, or even a gift to yourself! This could even be used as a basis for home-school curriculum or Sunday school teachings.

I hope you will pick up The Ology and let me know what you think about it! I am sure you will find it engaging, deep yet relatable and full of Scriptural truths that we must teach our children to build a strong foundation of faith. But you don't just have to take my word for it. You can go to the blog TOUR and check out what other readers had to say about this book. If you are interested in purchasing this book, you can purchase it here on Amazon.  

I received this book in exchange for my honest review of the product.
