The Ology: Ancient Truths, Ever New

by Marty Machowski
224 pages / 2015

I am always on the lookout for good books for our Church library, local Christian school and for our grandchildren, and just yesterday received my copy of Marty Machowski’s The ology. I am very impressed!

It is a systematic theology for children that I would say is geared to ages 5 to 8 as a read-aloud but it can be used by older children in personal study. Chapters are very short, averaging 2 minutes, plus reading a few texts.  Each beautifully illustrated story is accompanied with two or three texts written out, and references for four or five others to be looked up. These text references certainly add to the book. A parent guide at the beginning suggests ways to use it with different age groups, and a short glossary at the end, as well as discussion questions for each chapter, all make this an easy, enjoyable book to use.

I think The Ology is a “must have” for any family with children. Most parents are faithful in teaching the Bible stories but can have a harder time with the “theology” part and this will be a good aid for them.

"Be Fruitful and Multiply" tour comes to Albertan April 19-22

Families are having fewer babies, and the world’s population is expected to peak and then decline later this century. The world isn’t prepared for the impact that this is going to have. However, what may be the greatest challenge of this century can also be a huge opportunity for the Church to shine…. if we embrace the blessing of children, and are prepared to raise them faithfully.

In this presentation, Reformed Perspective’s Mark Penninga will unpack data, history, and God’s Word to make the case for embracing the gift of children with open arms.


Ages 16-116, single or married, children or no children, these presentations are suitable for all mature Christians.
