A new resource

The Africa Bible Commentary was released in early July. This is a significant resource for pastors and Biblical scholars across the continent.

Dr. Tokunboh Adeyemo, the editor, commented on the work: […it is important to the African Christian church because…] "how else would you explain so much corruption in the African continent?" [referring to a lack of understanding of the Bible]. Also he said of its importance, [It will help combat…] "shallow and superficial understanding of Biblical principles by Africans."

I was amused to see it as the cover story in Kenya's largest newspaper's equivalent to Parade magazine.

A footnote is that owing to a kind gift by some friends, we were able to give a copy to our pastor here.
