XTB 6: Footprints
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.
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.

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.

My daughter is very much enjoying her XTB. As a parent it is good to see your children developing a taste for learning from scripture. XTB is working for her right now. Thanks
