Reviews - What do customers think about One Year Of Dinner Table Devotions And Discussion?
Great book but kind of hard for my little ones Mar 27, 2010
This family devotional book is really good. My only problem with it is that I think it is too mature for my 10, 9 and 4 year old. We have been using it and I will probably go through it again when the kids get older.
Good Devotions, But Not for Young Children Jan 7, 2010
I bought this book to use during dinnertime. My children are 10, 4, & 1, and this was way too old for them to understand. I had to put it up for a few years!
Not as good as I'd hoped Jul 9, 2009
After reading other reviews for this, I guess I was expecting a little more than I should. The discussion starters are just okay and a little awkward for our family.
Pleasently Surprised by theological soundness and Whole-Family Accessibility Jun 7, 2009
I picked up this book at my local Christian bookstore, half-expecting to be revolted by cheesy cliches. But, wow - not the case. This book is full of well-thought-through TRUTH. NOT catchy, gimmicky, overly-sentimental "fluff."
I HIGHLY recommend this book, especially for families with mixed-ages of children. The book does a great job of addressing young children, while not talking down to high school aged students. I have 1 kindergartener, 1 preschool-aged kid, and a baby, and I expect that we'll begin using this devotional in a year or 2.
A Must Have For Any God-Loving Family!! Feb 11, 2009
This book is awesome. We have an 8 year old son and even my husband and I are learning from the bible studies just like he is!! We even had some friends over from church and did a study from this book, and even though the pages are simple and short, our conversation and ideas lasted for a long time. Great book!!!
