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.

(Review written for 'XTB 1: The Book of Beginnings')

 My 7year old very-confident-reader daughter is loving this reading guide. I'm delighted with it. Good explanations. Even better that it starts teaching about the Holy Spirit and then is straight on to the gospel. No holds barred great teaching. The Think about it bits are genuinely thought provoking. The variety of puzzles, codes, drawing bits etc keep her fully engaged. Highly recommended. No regrets on this one.

 We have been XTB with our 8 year old daughter for over a year now, we use it as 'quiet time' before she goes to bed. She enjoys it so much and it has taught her to think about the Bible far more then if we had just been reading the bible with her. We will continue to do XTB with her every night and will start doing it with her younger sister as she gets older too. What a brilliant concept and very well presented.

Bought for grandchildren

(Review written for 'XTB 1: The Book of Beginnings')

 We bought these notes to read with the grandchildren when they came to stay recently. They seemed to engage well, and asked to read them each day. They especially liked the stickers and wished there were more. Having things to fill in helped to focus. We hope using these notes will encourage the children to develop a daily Bible reading habit.

Good stuff

(Review written for 'XTB 1: The Book of Beginnings')

 I got this for my seven year old. She's a fluent reader so it suits her really well. I love that book one starts with the Holy Spirit. Excellent. Each day is short enough to do at bedtime. Really pleased with this purchase. No regrets.

Great notes!

 My kids really enjoy these and will choose to do them over other stories. Clear, simple and varied applications each day.

Great for children in KS2

 Full of colour, puzzles and activities. My 9 year old daughter happily sits and reads it by herself as the level is accessible and activities fun.

Perfect for primary aged kids

(Review written for 'XTB 6: Footprints')

 We have used the XTB books for the last 5 years with our three kids and have found them to be an excellent way to build devotional time with the kids at bedtime. The kids love the puzzles and humour and they are just long enough, without being too long...particularly when you have two other kids wanting your attention! I would really recommend these to any Christian parent wanting to disciple their children in the Christian faith. Lots of precious memories and laughter, thanks Good Book Company.

Excellent resource

(Review written for 'XTB 1: The Book of Beginnings')

 I have established the habit of personal Bible reading and meditation for the past 54 years and have found this an enormous help in personal knowlege of the Lord and growth in the faith. I was keen to encourage my class of children at church to read God's word for themselves. As a child I was helped by daily Bible reading notes and I was looking for something similar to show them
I was delighted to see how clear and relevant these notes were with questions and puzzles relevant to contemporary youth yet thoroughly faithful to a true commitment to the authority and truth of Scripture without surrender to contemporary trends in making Scripture secondary to secular naturalistic prejudice . Very clear and a delight to recommend.

Finding xtb and table talk very helpful

(Review written for 'XTB 2: Miracles & Dreams')

 I bought xtb with table talk. The children are loving doing their own reading in the morning and I am finding it extremely useful to see how they got on and further their understanding using table talk in the evenings. The two books complement each other very well and the children enjoy doing all the codes and activities in xtb.

(Review written for 'XTB 1: The Book of Beginnings')

 My 6-year-old loves her nightly XTB Bible readings. It's been great for getting her into reading her 'grown up' (International Children's!) Bible. Having looked at all the available notes, these looked the best, and have certainly proved popular with her. My only gripe: why are adult Bible reading notes not as full of fun puzzles?!
