    What Others Are Saying:

    Pastors and Christian scholars from across Africa who affirm the Bible as the inspired Word of God came together to make this project happen, and Africa is richer for it. —Dr Conrad Mbewe, Chancellor, African Christian University



    This is a much-awaited contribution to our appreciation and deeper understanding of the biblical narratives in a context that is much closer to the African culture and worldview. I hope that not only Africans but also people from other cultures would find this study most beneficial for strengthening their faith in the light of God’s Word. —Dr Opoku Onyinah, Former Chairman, The Church of Pentecost



    Interpreting the Bible in any context in our 21st century world is always a difficult task. The world of the Bible is different from ours, but the Bible was meant to be read by people in all times and in all places. Readers are meant to grasp its broader story and the deeper messages communicated through its various genres of narrative, poetry, legal material, wisdom literature, apocalyptic material, epistles and so forth. This project has bridged the gap between the world of Africa and the world of the Bible in a unique way, all the while retaining the integrity of the biblical message. —Prof Elizabeth Mburu, Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek, International Leadership University



    As African Christians are becoming an increasing portion of the global church, African scholars and teachers have produced a theological handbook sensitive to African realities. —Prof Craig Keener, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary



    As the title promises, this is a comprehensive guide to the Bible and to Christianity, and it is essential for believers and nonbelievers alike to understand the Bible and the Christian life. It is written by Africans who understand the current culture. African proverbs quoted throughout the book help the reader apply biblical truth to our own cultures. This book covers a wide variety of theological topics and lessons in how to read and understand the Bible. Anyone from any culture will benefit from this overview. —Mark Taylor, Chairman of the Board, Tyndale House Ministries
