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.

Customer reviews



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


“Great content, quick delivery”

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

Can guarantee great biblical content from this company and it was delivered quickly. Thanks


“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.


“Bring your family togeter”

(Review written for 'Table Talk Subscription')

Our 7 year old loves it "because we can read the bible together and learn new things live how to love God" Our 10 year old enjoys finding the bible passages and reading aloud. It really brings us together as a family. User friendly with great talking points, I would really recommend this to any family, especially those not used to reading the bible together.


“Family fun at breakfast”

Fantastic, loved by all of us and great for breakfast time


“Great for small Kids Church”

I've looked at lots of resources for teaching our small Kids Church. We have found Table Talk enabled us to put together great lessons that are theologically sound, and often more in depth then many other resources. We combine 2 studies most weeks, our primary school age break off and look further at the lessons using the XTB studies while we do a related craft with the infants.
