I told you I had a giveaway coming up and it has arrived! Setting up giveaways is so much fun for me on this humble blog that I had planned on that being the focal point of my entire post... until I got great news that I knew needed to be shared without delay! About a year ago, I shared a post with you introducing the African Study Bible. I explained that ALL of the Bibles available in Africa are written from and to a Western (UK, American) perspective and audience. Yes, we are all people and we have common struggles, but we can all acknowledge that the way of life in Africa varies greatly from that in the US or England. Having a resource that recognizes the culture and lifestyle in Africa will be a tremendous blessing--- and now it has arrived!
The African Study Bible has already been released and celebrated in Nairobi, Kenya and Accra, Ghana. The President of Kenya recorded a video blessing the ASB project. The upcoming schedule of celebrations of its release includes Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa June 4-11, as well as Abuja and Lagos, Nigeria June 29- July 1. Please join me in praising the Lord for bringing this project to completion and in praying for its use to His Glory and for His Kingdom throughout all of Africa and the entire world!
The ASB will be available for sale in the US in May and is being distributed by Tyndale House. It is a resource literally in its own category as there are no other Bibles written from this perspective or with this focus of ministering to the African people. With millions of individuals of African descent living in America, this resource is not only useful for those who live in or travel to Africa- it is very relevant right here in the melting pot of the United States.
