Great little book for topical studies, good for middle school ages. We used it to guide bible studies for middle schoolers and the stories were helpful to connect important biblical truths to real life. Might be helpful to use the questions and add/exchange one or two more.

While I am not a fan of personal devotions, preferring to read/study scripture, I do find them helpful to get our whole family in the Word together. This has been the best family devotional we have used to date. Each day includes a scripture reading, devotion and discussion starters. We all enjoyed participating (7 & 12 year old) and it worked really well to transition from our evening meal to devotions.

There were a couple times we didn’t understand what the author was trying to drive at with t

One of the best family use devotionals I have found. When we first started using it I was sad there were verses instead of chapters. Oftentimes I have found devotions that do this and there isn’t much substance offered afterwards. But the discussions that follow theses verses are so good for inspiring our family to have conversations about what we’ve just read. We have used this book during meals but also before bedtime and I think it works well for both!

Don't normally go for this sort of thing, and the cover design is atrocious, but these are fantastic devotions. The readings are substantive and the discussion prompts are deep, enough for adults to have good conversation, but over the head for little kids. It helps to already have some working theology to start from when discussing. ...more

I can honestly say that this Dinner Table Devotions has been the best family devotions book I have come across. The readings have a great message followed with the discussion questions which you read, discuss and reflect on. The scriptures on the side of the pages that go along with that evening's devotions were easy to understand after reading the devotion and the discussion questions. Seriously, this book is highly recommended. PS--You don't need a family to dive into this book. You can read i ...more

We have four boys ages 6-12. No, we didn’t read this every evening, but it has been a nice resource to have and it’s just the right amount for the attention spans we are dealing with. Though we don’t use it every night, it has been the only devotional that we have stuck with. Sometimes we make our own questions up for the boys, but it’s mainly a conversation starter rather than a quiz. I would recommend it if you’re looking for something that’s actually doable and not overwhelming.

Did not read the whole book but used it for family devotions for a while. Seems aimed at getting older kids to talk with you, rather than actually teaching them about God. Hubby and I agreed this is not for us. Might be ok if you have teenagers with a solid biblical foundation and you just struggle to pull them out of their shell.
