Other information

Table Talk is for families with children from 4 yrs and up to use for daily Bible times. Each day takes about five minutes, maybe at breakfast or after an evening meal. Choose whatever time suits you best as a family.

Table Talk links in with XTB Bible reading notes for children. (XTB stands for eXplore The Bible). The Bible passages are the same each day for Table Talk and XTB - so you can use the two books together, or on their own. Whichever suits you best.

“Quite good, but a bit text heavy”

(Review written for 'Table Talk: The Collection')

This looks good, but the layout is much more text heavy and has much less colour than the equivalent XTB children's Bible Study

I think these are very well written, with nice pictures and I have already recommended them to friends.

“Excellent for families ”

We are a new Christian family and I wanted something that was easy do with my boys aged 8 and 10, without it being too complicated. The activities and prayers are great at the end. Highly recommend it.

This is such a good book! After the emails over easter I wanted a book to carry on bible time with my children. These are easy to follow and do not take much time but my children (10 and 6) really enjoy this time together! Will be buying the whole set!

“Great for the whole family”

I was recommended this book by our church's children's and young families worker because I wanted something that my 11 year old son could be interested in alongside my daughter also. It's a brilliant book and easy to use and the whole family including my husband got involved in it and as a whole family we all enjoy using it. We do it round the dining table when we have our tea as that's the best time for us all to be together. I'd recommend it for the family and my 11 year old son is really enjoying it too.

“Excellent Notes”

We're trying Table Talk as a family at weekend breakfasts. It works well with parents leading it, and children answering questions and discussing points. We're using it with a 10 year old and a 4 year old.

“Brilliant Bible time with fun”

I have always wanted to read the bible as a family but never managed to maintain the children's interest and wondered how much they understood. this book is fantastic as the biblical explanations are excellent. The children and adults get to do activities not just simply read. For example this week my kids have had strips of paper with bible verses and have been trying to put them in order, they have also been acting out scenes. Great fun and a great way of remembering what you have learnt. Even my 13 year old joins in. I would thoroughly recommend it.
