Cool new Bible project for Africa!

There’s a cool new project I recently heard about that I wanted to share with you.

It is the Africa Study Bible.

As pastor with a heart for missions and knowing context is critical, this new Bible hopes to help bridge the gap of cultural understanding and relevance of the Scripture to everyday life in Africa. Because most discipleship and biblical resources come from a Western perspective and viewpoint—a culture far removed from Africa. Africans have lacked a resource that connects with their unique experience, hindering discipleship. So the goal of this new Bible is to create a resource that will disciple and equip others to grow strong in Jesus Christ and to give insight into God’s Word from an African perspective. The Africa Study Bible will be bringing the power of Scripture to Africa in a new and culturally relevant way.

The Africa Study Bible will contain more than 2,200 features planned by Africans who teach and lead God’s people. Designed to grow the faith of African church members, teach them to evangelize their communities, and apply a biblical worldview to their society, these features will include application notes, stories and proverbs, touchpoints that link Africa and the Bible, learn notes that explain basic theology, and major theme articles that apply the Bible to key issues.

This project isn't a reality yet. But below you can check out a video about the project, read about some of its features, and even learn how you can be a partner in bringing it to reality through their Kickstarter page.
