A Resource Guide for Parents – Multilayered Teaching of Biblical Truths for All Ages
“The Ology” is filled with life changing; Biblically sound stories that will equip parents to introduce their family foundational theological truths on the subjects of: God, man, sin, promises of the law, Christ, the Holy Spirit, adoption into God’s family, the Church, end times, and God’s Word.
The scripture passages and commentary challenge the reader to go beyond a casual reading and help establish a lifelong habit of Bible study, search for truth, assimilation, and personal application.
A parental guide describes how this multilevel resource can be adapted to every age level, from early and upper elementary students, through teens and adults. I like the suggestions for using discussion questions, the different Bible study approaches and the use of journals for optimum effectiveness. Suggestions are also provided for techniques to develop Scripture memory. A glossary of important Bible words helps the reader understand and embrace their meaning.
The format, artwork, graphics, and quality paper all add to the enjoyment and sense of importance of the permanence and the truth of the message being illustrated.
“The Ology” is a work of art. Every member of the family should be provided their own individual copy and be encouraged to make it a permanent addition to their personal library.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
