The Ology (Review)
This review is for the book "The Ology" by Marty Machowski. I really cannot say enough great things about this book. I was extremely impressed with every aspect of this book.
When the reader opens the book they meet Carla and Timothy. These kids have just found an old cellar with a book that has been untouched for a long time. They open it up and begin to read. Of course, as an adult, you will realize this book is The Bible. This book explains biblical truths in a way that children can comprehend and not get overwhelmed. For example, we read one truth every day. I would read the title ("Sin Spreads like a Disease") and the corresponding paragraphs. Then my daughter would find the listed scriptures in her Bible and read them out loud (usually 5-8 scriptures). Then we would discuss how the scriptures went with the topic and talk about any questions my kids had. If your kids are older, there are discussion questions in the back that you could use for each truth. This book covers it all. From God (He is the trinity, in control, perfect, etc.) to people and sin, to the promise and the law, to Christ and the Holy Spirit to adoption into God's family to change (how you change after salvation) to the church, to the end times and God's word. It also includes a glossary.
I guarantee you we will be using this book for years to come. It is a great treasure to use with your children. I highly, highly recommend this book.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
