“The Africa Study Bible is a welcome blessing to the body of Christ in Africa which is becoming a center piece for divine visitation. The most difficult concepts, names, periods, situations which African readers grapple with, have been greatly simplified by making them relevant to our understanding and context. These were further made easier by including various explanatory notes, relevant articles, African proverbs, idioms and pithy sayings. All of these make both the reading and study of the Bible much easier and friendly to Africans.
This study Bible demonstrates two important things about our African Church. First, we are coming of age. We no longer have to get most of our Bible study resources from outside Africa. The Spirit of Jesus anointed well over 300 African writers who contributed to this highly useful study Bible, the first of its kind on the African continent. Second, we are coming together. We Christians have far more that unites us than divides us. Therefore, the traditional missionary churches, the Pentecostals, the indigenous African churches and others laid aside our minor differences to write the notes for this study Bible that can teach and bless all of us. This is the Holy Spirit in action. Jesus’ prayer on his last night on this earth—that “we may be one” is being answered in this study Bible. I offer my most sincere congratulations and thanks to all our brothers and sisters who have contributed to this study Bible through coordinating, writing, editing, and funding. I therefore, endorse and recommend it very highly to all Christians, churches and students of the Bible.”
