Three months of Bible readings to help you investigate Mark's Gospel, Joshua and Ephesians

Description

Venture into the Promised land with the Israelites in Joshua.

Read more about why Jesus came in Mark's Gospel.

Issue Six of XTB is called Footprints. Three months of Bible readings to help you investigate who Jesus is and why He came in Mark's Gospel, explore the promised land with the Israelites in Joshua (where battles await!), and unravel the end of Paul's prison letter to the Ephesians.

Other information

XTB (eXplore The Bible) is a series of daily Bible reading notes for children of the 7-11 age group, with puzzles, pictures and prayers.

XTB is beautifully presented with full-color illustrations and is a series of 12 books which, if used on a quarterly basis, will help a child cover all of the main books, themes and characters of the Bible in 3 years.

Look out for Table Talk - a book of daily Bible times for families with children aged from 4 upwards. The Bible passages are the same each day for XTB and Table Talk - so you can use the two books together, or on their own. Whichever suits you best.

Table of contents

  • Days 1-20 look at Mark chs 4-8
  • Day 21 starts Joshua and continues until day 40 ending in ch 8
  • Days 41-55 continue in Ephesians
  • And back into Joshua chs 21-24 from days 56-65
  • A series of puzzles and questions at the very end of the book offer a chance to look into other parts of the Bible not covered here and some budding comedians try their hand at making you laugh (or groan) on the XTB Joke Page.

Really fun and faithful

 My 9 year old loves these notes - sometimes we do them together and sometimes he does them on his own. Usually pitched at the right level, with lots of puzzles (codes, word searches etc) to keep him interested.

XTB is great, but this is not really a year's subscription

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

 We love XTB (me and my 6 year old son). It helps to really understand the gospel, not just the bible stories. I think however that it's not right to call this a year's subscription. 1 issue contains 65 days of bible studies and you receive 4 issues over the year, which is only 260 days of bible studies and not the 365 days a year has. I think this should be more clearly advertised! 

Thanks for your review - I'm delighted that you and your son are enjoying exploring the Bible with XTB. My great hope was that it would help children and families come to know the Lord better through His Word.

I completely understand your frustration with the number of full XTB pages per issue - I know it's not ideal. For various reasons it simply wasn't possible to include 90 full days in each issue, and the reality is that there are many children and families who don't use XTB on a daily basis.

But I was very keen that anyone who was reading the Bible every single day didn't suddenly run out of Bible passages to read and think about. That's why you will find 26 extra readings at the back of the book. Each one gives a passage to read, a question to answer and a wordsearch to find that word in. It's not ideal, but was the best option we had to fill in the gap before the next issue.

I do hope you and your son continue to enjoy exploring the Bible together, and that XTB can help with that, even if not in the ideal way. Thanks again for writing your review.

Excellent bible study notes for children

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

 I have found the XTB resource to be such a wonderful bible study tool and aid for our primary school children (7-9) I would definitely recommend it to parents who are considering to purchase it for there children who want to grow in the bible knowledge and spiritual growth as this is pitched a the right level.

Kicks kids off with independent bible study

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

 We have used table talk, a Good Book resource for many years with all 4 of our children. We have recently tried XTB with our 8 year old who is really enjoying it and is familiar with the design. It is really great to see her do her own Bible Study every night, and get into (hopefully) a lifelong love of the scriptures. I would really reccommend this resource, Table Talk is still really great (our oldest, now 10 still enjoys it and our youngest, 5 is now answering questions), and XTB is a super follow on. We do table talk as a family every weekday morning and XTB is used every night. It's great value and teaches alot of Gods word in a simple format anyone can understand. Thanks.

 My kids just so enjoyed doing it by themselves. They brought it over to show me. I was so happy they can do it independently. The activities book such are good exercise through the self-study. Thank you our great saviour lord...

Excellent

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

 Excellent! Our 8 yr old boy n 6 yr old daughter love doing it first thing in the morning by themselves Takes them maybe 10 mins and they really enjoy it. We hope it will help them love God's word and get into daily habit of sitting at Jesus ' feet - it seems to be doing that so far .Can't recommend it enough.

Highly recommended

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

 A first-rate bible reading resource for our 9 year old son. Clear, thought-provoking teaching with interesting puzzles to do which reinforce it. He loves doing it and never wants to miss one before he goes to bed.

Good fun. Well presented

 My 7 year old really loves doing these notes. We do the table talk passage that ties in with it at breakfast time when we can. He enjoys the mini puzzles and the occasional comic strip.

Fantastic intro into the bible for kids

 Our nine year old loves doing the puzzles and likes the extra gift item, in this series there is a notebook. She always wants to do the lesson before she goes to bed and is really growing in her love for the Lord. She has done several of these studies in this series. I like how it repeats in different ways what it is trying to teach to help reinforce the point. I think it is great to see how my daughters bible knowledge is being built up piece by piece and also how she is seeing how it links together. Really pleased with finding this series and thanks for the thought and effort that has gone into putting this together. Highly rated.
