The Ology by Marty Machowski (Review)

Hi, Parents. 

My family has just finished this book for our family devotions. It was amazing. The pictures by Andy McGuire were exceptional. We would read a chapter at dinner. I would have different children read a section or the verses at the end. There are 71 truths discussed, nine sections, and a glossary in the back. There are also discussion questions, which I didn't realize. This book is a must-have for parents of younger children. Pastors pick this book up for your library as well.   

You can get a copy HERE on Amazon! Or check it out at any book store.  

From the Publisher: 

The Ology by best-selling children's author Marty Machowski is a stunningly illustrated beginner's theology book to help kids of all ages understand who God is and how we, as his children, relate to him.

Arranged within a traditional systematic theological framework, each truth in The Ology is also connected to the larger redemptive story of Scripture. This storybook of systematic theology takes abstract concepts in the Bible and makes them easier to understand with the use of creative examples, illustrations, and analogies.

The Ology is a starting point to learning theology and aims to create a hunger and desire in children to learn more as they grow older. Designed for six-year-olds through preteens, this flexible resource includes built-in adaptations so the entire families can enjoy it together.

The story begins in the cellar of the old stone cathedral, where Carla and Timothy uncover a life-changing treasure: a carefully wrapped, ancient book known as The Ology. Young readers will discover a tale of adventure, mystery, and wonder, which will lead them to the truth about God, themselves, and the world around them.

As a father to six children, Machowski knows how to intentionally create a vivid resource, full of analogies and word pictures to help kids grasp difficult theological concepts. Read The Ology to preschoolers; read it with grade-school kids, and let older kids discover the "hidden" truths by reading the corresponding Scripture passages for each section.

However you read it, The Ology will give your children a gift that will last a lifetime—a solid foundation of transformative biblical truth that will point them to the God who loves them and gave himself for them.

There is also a companion album to The Ology by Sovereign Grace Music that celebrates these wonderful theological truths through worship music that the whole family can enjoy.


  1. We are going through this book, too. Mostly, it's been good and helpful. I've been saddened a few times, though, when the author misuses Bible verses or uses them out of context. I liked The Gospel Story Bible: Discovering Jesus in the Old and New Testaments (, by the same author, better than this one so far.
