XTB 9: Way To Go
Read about what happened to David when at last he became king in Israel
Find out what the whole Bible has to say about our real king, Jesus
Get a clear picture of the two ways we can live in response to Him with the Free booklet.
Issue Nine of XTB is called Way To Go. Three months of Bible readings to help you investigate who Jesus is in John's Gospel, and find out about King David in the book of 2 Samuel. But first, we'll zip through the free booklet Who Will Be King? to check out who's King of our lives.
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 1-10 look at various parts of the Bible - Hebrews, Acts, John, Mark - with the Who Will Be King? booklet

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!
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.
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.

My 8 year old girl loves this. It's easy to use, clearly Biblical, applies for the modern world and is not shy to ask hard questions. I've just signed up for year's subscription
XTB notes for children(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
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
Great resource!(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
Our 8 year old daughter looks forward to doing her 'bible reading' each night - it is easy for her to read alone and understand the big picture of the passage. It also has interesting activities for her. Highly recommended!!
XTB bible notes(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
Bought these for my daughters age 6 and 7. Both love doing their bible notes each night. My 6 year old struggles with the reading and some of the puzzles bur this doesn't deter her and with a little help she keeps up with her sister! Such a privilege to guide them as they learn from the bible themselves. The conversations we have had about the subjects they have been learning about have been amazing. The notes point them each day to the Saviour - what more can I add?!
Great tool for getting kids into the Bible(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')
I ordered XTB because I wanted something more than just Bible stories for my nearly 7 year old. We enjoy doing it together and every day is different which I like. There are some fun puzzles and teaching points are put across in creative ways. She is definitely learning more about God and being a Christian from doing it and so am I!
