FAQ


What do I need to make a Child Training Bible?

1.     CTB Charts
2.     A 9” by 6” Bible
3.     Highlighters
4.     Tabs

Can I use any Bible version?

            Yes, you may use the Bible version that you prefer.  We have different versions listed here that will fit the CTB Charts.  We used the English Standard Version (ESV) because it is a word for word translation that is very readable.  Learn more about the ESV here . 


What size Bible will fit the CTB Charts?

            The exact size of the CTB Charts is 8.75” by 5.75”.  Your Bible should measure        9” by 6” or larger to fit with the CTB Charts.  Download this free CTB template  to make sure your Bible is the perfect fit!


Is there a downloadable PDF version of the Child Training Bible Charts?

            Sorry!  We do not have a PDF available.


Do the highlighters bleed through the Bible pages?

            The highlighters do not bleed through the ESV Bible pages.  Darker colors “show through” a bit.  If you are using a version with very thin pages, you might consider using colored pencils or twistable crayons.  Click here to see your coloring and highlighting options.


What group rates are available?


            You will receive the discount by placing your order from the "Order Supplies" tab.  If you would like to purchase 40 or more CTB's, please email ChildTrainingBible (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send you a Pay Pal invoice to reflect the discount.  


Can I share CTB supplies with my friends?

            You will each need a set of CTB Charts and your own Bible.  Three packages of tabs will make four Child Training Bibles.  You can also share highlighters with your group.  


Can the CTB be reproduced?

            The Child Training Bible Charts are copyrighted and the method is in the process of being patented.  Please do not reproduce.


What does your postage rate include?

            All orders are shipped through USPS Priority Mail.  The postage cost includes shipping, processing, and handling.  CTB Chart Sets are mailed in white, rigid mailers with delivery confirmation and USPS tracking.  (Confirmation and Tracking on US shipments only).  An order of one or two CTB Chart Sets has the same postage rate.  For even greater discounts on postage, get a group of 10 or more together and place your order.


How soon will I get my order?

            Your CTB Charts usually ship the day after you order.  All orders ship from southern California and take 3-4 days to arrive at US destinations.  International orders take longer and depend on the mail system of each individual country.


Do you ship internationally?

            Yes…we ship ALL over the world!  There are Child Training Bibles in South Africa, Canada, Australia, Singapore, France, Germany, Indonesia, Argentia, Austria, Bermuda, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, and the United Kingdom…we are praising God for spreading His Word to all the nations!


At what age can you use the Child Training Bible?

            I began using the CTB with my kids starting at age 2!  I thought I was making the CTB just for my kids, but the Lord has used His Word to change me!  I often use the CTB for myself…and I treasure the time I spent highlighting and tabbing it!


Does the CTB only focus on sin?

            I made the CTB as a way for my husband and myself to teach our children about what the Bible says about certain behaviors and what a godly, Spirit-filled response should be instead.  In each section about half of the verses speak to the behavior as a sin (negative) and the other half focuses on the godly, Spirit-enabled response (positive).  The questions on the back of each Scripture Chart help focus on gospel truths and Jesus.    


Is the CTB only used for correction?

            The CTB was designed with 2 Timothy 3:15-17 in mind. 

“And how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

The Word of God is able to make our children “wise for salvation!”  The gospel section of the CTB is so important.  Use it to proclaim salvation in Jesus Christ!  You can also go through each section during family devotions or Bible study for training in righteousness.  Download our FREE CTB Study Guide, here.  Join our CTB Community on Facebook to participate in a CTB Study together with believers from all over the world!  Or start your own CTB Study group!


How do you use the CTB with your kids?

With my children, I try to use each instructional time when we come to Scripture as an opportunity to preach the gospel.  When we use the CTB, we talk about the sin, our need for a Savior because of our inability to please God in our own strength, and then we talk about the perfect life Jesus lived in our place and His absolutely gracious gift of salvation!  The CTB is a tool to help you highlight the good news of the gospel in light of our desperate need for grace.  I come to the Scripture with my children as a sinner, needing a Savior and His forgiveness and righteousness.  We end our time of biblical instruction by rejoicing in Jesus, worshipping Him and praising Him through prayer!
