    One thought on “The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New”

    1. Originally posted on Creative Madness Mama. A theology primer for children Several years ago, I was introduced to the writing of Marty Machowski through The Gospel Story Bible. The illustrations were a bit loud for my taste, but the writing and the scripture coming across was solid and good for sharing with my children (who do appreciate the wild drawings). Then in the last year I discovered Long Story Short (a devotional) on Kindle. I'm hoping that one day I will also find Old Story New go [...]

    2. Finished this tonight with my kids. What a great resource to introduce children to systematic theology and the doctrines of God's Word. Each chapter is short, the illustrations are great, and the content is excellent. If you are a parent with young kids, definitely check this out!

    3. About the Book:A Page-Turning Storybook of Theology for KidsIn the cellar of the old stone cathedral, Carla and Timothy uncover a life-changing treasure, a carefully wrapped ancient book known as The Ology. What adults might describe as a beautifully illustrated storybook of systematic theology, the kids discover to be a story of adventure, mystery, and wonder that leads them to the truth about God, themselves, and the world around them.Truth is for kids, not just for adults! So The Ology gives [...]

    4. The Ology – Ancient Truths Ever New is a theologically sound primer that introduces children between the ages of 6 and 12 to core Christian doctrines and abstract theological concepts. The Ology uses creative examples, illustrations and analogies to make these concepts easy to understand.The book is written so that it’s adaptable to the wide range of needs of the children within that age group – for example, you can read the stories aloud to younger children, and older children can researc [...]

    5. First sentence: Exploring the centuries-old church in their neighborhood was proving to be an adventure that Carla and Timothy would not soon forget. They had come upon an unlocked cellar door and had ventured down the stone stairway into the musty dimness below. "Look!" Carla exclaimed as she lifted the corner of a thick rug. "A hidden door." "I wonder where it leads," Timothy said. "Does it open?" the children pulled back the rug and lifted the door. Timothy pointed his flashlight into the dar [...]

    6. Fabulous resource for teaching theology to children in an engaging and beautiful way. Found myself so blessed right alongside my kids.

    7. Marty Machowski, author of The Gospel Story Bible and a number of other books for children, has continued his pattern of excellence in The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New. Framed by the story of a sister and her brother discovering and exploring a book entitled The Ology, Machowski's volume provides a systematic treatment of Christian doctrine suitable for children. A parent's guide gives moms and dads guidance in leading their children in a reading adventure that will introduce the basics of the [...]

    8. This book was very helpful to me in understanding things like the trinity, the 10 commandments, and the promise to Abraham. Things are very well explained by little passages exploring different concepts as in Jesus Christ and sin. The pictures in this book give you a vivid picture in your head of what could have happened when it happened. It also has an intriguing story about how this book was found. Tip: you should probably have your bible to look up verses.

    9. Good overview of systematic theology for children. It is easy to understand, has verses, questions, and illustrations. I would give it five stars but there were several sections which were poorly explained. The lesson on baptism added more confusion than explanation, as well as some sections of the end times. Some of those themes are confusing enough as it is, and trying to include a broad range of interpretations is pointless.

    10. In The Ology, children and families can access deep Biblical truths, carefully explained and gorgeously illustrated. Read full review at Redeemed Reader

    11. I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to teach children about theology. Solid teaching and beautiful illustrations!

    12. This is a wonderful book - captivating, Biblical, sound theology, reader friendly, engaging, visually beautiful - I can't wait to use this when I get back to work.

    13. There aren't many systematic theology books for children that I get excited about. The Ology is definitely the exception. From the very beginning it establishes itself as an exciting story of two young siblings who find an ancient book of truth that begins with the ancient pastors of the early church; a book of theology called The Ology. The bulk of the book is the unfolding systematic theology written in such a way that children of all ages will get excited about learning about God. The book en [...]

    14. As a Baptist, I often feel like I fail to pass on a systematic answer to my children on certain Biblical truths. We just don’t have any set up catechisms or even any unifying creeds in our churches beyond the one that is particular to each church. So, it was with anticipation that I received the new book, The Ology: Ancient Truths, Ever New. I knew as soon as I received it that this book was the perfect book to provide a comprehensive look at our faith and why we hold to it for my children.The [...]

    15. If you could take the Bible and mix in some incredible illustrations, all filled with Biblical truths, then you would have a phenomenal book. Oh wait! Someone has done that! And yes, it is absolutely stunning in every way.The Ology: Ancients Truths, Ever New is a book that you will without doubt want to add to your bookshelf.

    16. "The Ology: Ancient Truths Ever New" is a 224 page, illustrated systematic theology primer geared for "children", but as I was going through the book, I felt that this was more than just a children "primer", but a book that even adults, yes, adults can benefit from as well.Filled with beautiful illustrations and relevant Scripture, "The Ology" helps de-mystify the world of systematic theology and although this is not a book that would be of help for someone going through seminary, it can definit [...]

    17. This is by far the most beautiful book, written for family storytelling, beginning at about age 3. The format is every attractive, each two pages, has a lesson, with nicely simple illustration, boxed key verse and several other Biblical references to follow up on this lesson. It opens with a parental guide to maximize the use of the book as a spiritual guide. It is Biblical correct and the drawings draw in the child for further discussion. It starts with the Ology of God, then the ology of peopl [...]

    18. Introduction and Conclusion. This book has a fun little intro and conclusion that kids can relate to and that excites them about what is inside.Organization. The book is neatly organized into 71 chapters that logically walk kids through the major tenets of the Christian faith. The table of contents allows you to easily jump to a topic if needed.Bible References. Each chapter includes scripture supporting scripture quotes, in addition to scripture references if you’d like to read more on the su [...]

    19. I love the look and feel of this book - it just begs you to pick it up and leaf through it. It also calls to mind a picture of a family gathered together with The Ology and their Bibles, building a foundation for what they believe and why. The illustrations by Andy McGuire are gorgeous and they are detailed enough to appeal to a child's curiosity without becoming too cluttered or distracting. Each theology lesson is well organized and presented in terms simple enough for beginning believers and [...]

    20. When we received The Ology, my boys were excited and we found it to be a gift that is going to be a treasure in our family. It is beautifully illustrated and starts with a story about children around their ages of ten and eight who are exploring an old church and find a hidden door, what fun, open the door and down the staircase they go. There they find a package marked “open and read”. There is a letter enclosed telling them that “This is the last known copy of a rare children’s book wi [...]

    21. Who is God? Where did He come from? Why did Jesus need to die? These are all questions that my kids asked in their growing up years. And while the Bible is the ultimate authority for answering these and other questions, The Ology by Marty Machowski is a great resource for parents and kids to discover the truth about God. With its beautiful illustrations, the short and on point explanations and the accompanying Scripture, The Ology is definitely a book to add to your family’s library.The story [...]
