The Africa Study Bible is a timely response to thousands of Christians in Africa who, like the Ethiopian official, are reading the Scripture without understanding its message (Acts 8:31). The Africa Study Bible has been variously welcomed as a precious resource, divinely providential. The church has come of age. This work is original, rich, profound, culturally sensitive, inspiring, and meets a long-felt need. The French version, La Bible d'étude: perspectives africaines, is about to be launched. Just as I was involved in casting the vision [in English], I am more committed today to promote La BEPA’s launching across African French-speaking countries as well as in francophone diaspora beyond Africa. —Prof Dr Abel Ndjerareou, “Africa Study Bible” contributor and Professor at Shalom Evangelical School of Theology in Chad
French-speaking Africa is known for its material poverty. One element of this poverty is the lack of Christian literature resources in the French language. The need for French-language Bible study materials is, and remains to be, an even more profound source of poverty for the region. With so few study Bibles in Francophone Africa, translating [the Africa Study Bible] is not merely a priority, it is a necessity, an emergency. It will be like providing food (God’s Word) for a starving population. —Dr Daniel Bourdanné, former General Secretary, International Fellowship of Evangelical Students
