The Ology is a systematic theology book for children, beautifully illustrated and effectively presented in short chapters: beginning with The Ology of God, this volume works its way through The Ology of People, Sin, the Promise and the Law, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Adoption into God’s Family, Change, Church, the End Times and God’s Word, with each chapter pointing the reader to the Word of God. The Ology is designed to be read with children (aged 6–9) and by children (aged 10–12). It is also a book that provides a framework for a solid biblical worldview for teenagers, young adults and maybe not so young adults. Last year, my 11–year–old daughter Zara read this from cover–to–cover and thoroughly enjoyed it, learning, in her own words, “so much about God” and sharing with me one day that she knew where the devil came from, having read the chapter on sin. We gave The Ology to every child and young person in our Sunday School and Bible Class as a one–off gift; it was also presented as the first prize for RE in P5, P6 and P7 in our local primary school. There is a companion CD also called The Ology by Sovereign Grace Music that celebrates the wonderful theological truths contained in the book through memorable songs and music. Both make excellent gifts.
This really clear and helpful book makes theology accessible to children. Difficult concepts are explained in down to earth and concrete ways. Many topics which are often overlooked with children are covered well. For example, there's a whole section on 'the ology' of change, including teaching on 'We grow a little at a time', 'Put off the old, put on the new' and other important subjects about Christian growth. Well worth adults reading as well as children
We have just started using this with our 5 yr old and finding it very helpful. In many ways it's an older version of "Everything a Child Should Know about God" and so suitable for ages 5/6 - 10/11. It has a few paragraphs of text, explaining the doctrine/topic, along with a picture also giving a few Bible verses around it. It covers key Bible doctrines and will really help children (and adults!) to start grappling with some of the wonderful truths of God. An essential and really helpful book for any person that wants to teach children, in a simple and clear way, Biblical truths about God!
