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-colour 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.

“Reasnoble Reading Level Required”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

If the child is a little younger they will still need to be acompanied. This is because there is normally between 2 and 8 verses to read from the Bible. The materials are particularly good for kids who like word games to fill out.

Theologically excellent.

“Fantastic!”

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

Absolutely love this! I am a children's ministry worker and this has played a huge part of the children's' spiritual growth. Through these books they have come to know and understand the Word and God so much more. I am seeing a difference in them since they started using these books. I've used them for one-to-one studies and then sent them home with children to do in the week. Easy to read, nice to look at, explains everything well and all in manageable bitesize chunks! Love it! Cannot recommend it enough!

“Great bible notes”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

My 6 year old loves these. We are half way through the first book and he is enjoying them - particularly the stickers and the codes. I thought it might be too advanced for him but he is understanding them and getting alot out of it.

“Faithful and brilliantly communicated”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

We bought these for our 5 year old Daughter. She is too young for them really, and they'd suit better an older child, but already we have had some excellent times in God's word using XTB. I am very impressed with the way that - consistently - the point of the bible passage is very clearly the point of the notes. And the variety of ways that's communicated - through fun and puzzles and games, but also points at which you have to stop and really think things over - make for a great devotional time.

“Excellent study notes”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

I have just bought a set to work through - for the third time (third boy!). They are excellent and form a great foundation for Bible study.
What's more they engage the children and they are fun. And not too much writing but the kids do have to focus themselves. They are not too girly either.
I waited till my boy was 6. This is because there are only 12 of these study books. More would be welcome.
I will probably do them again.
Have looked at a lot of studies. These are the best.
I have learnt loads from them!

“Great material for small groups”

We have started to use this material for our small group of 7 to 11 year old children. We usually have an average of around 5 children in the Sunday group and the children have loved having their own booklets to fill in and the teachers have not found it too time consuming to prepare.

“Great bible study for kids”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

This is just the thing to get kids studying on their own (mine do 10 mins before a bedtime story) and finding out interesting Biblical facts. Presented in a kid friendly way with illustrations and simple but foundational truths one at a time, 3 of my kids have used this to start study on their own, 1 to go so will be getting another set at some point. Ages 7 upwards has worked for us. They also show it to their friends and have sent them to non churched kids for presents with no complaints :)

“Very good”

(Review written for 'XTB Subscription')

This is an excellent daily reading resource for children to read the Bible themselves, with activities to help develop understanding. It includes a guide to finding your way around the bible and a prayer diary along with ideas for prayer, thus helping your child to develop an independent prayer life as part of their Quiet Time. My 3rd child is now using the resource, and I have found it to be a great foundation for more standard Daily Bible Reading notes for my older children.

“Excellent!”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

My 7 year old is really enjoying these. They are a great resource to help children get into the habit of reading the Bible every day. They are great fun as well as excellent at helping children apply the Bible to their lives.

“excellent resources”

(Review written for 'XTB: The Collection')

Really good value way of buying these. It is so difficult to find good bible study resources for children, but these are excellent. My children (6 & 8) love them, especially cracking the codes. Quite difficult for the 6 yr old ( but he had grown out of the (also good) Pens ones we had been using and difficult to find anything inbetween) but 8 yr old can do them on her own and finds them really stimulating - she would love to work through several at a time but then I would run out of things for her to do! The little extras (stickers, magnifying glass, prayer journal etc.) also go down well. Each book also explains really well how to become a christian and what it means in your life.
