The ASB Gospel of John unveils the first completed book of the Africa Study Bible, developed by Africans for Africa. Study along with life application features developed specifically to connect truth to daily life in Africa.
Experience the first taste of the Africa Study Bible (ASB), the first full study Bible with notes written by Africans, for Africa. Right now, hundreds of African writers and editors from every major region in Africa are working together to develop the full ASB for release in 2016. The ASB will be a totally new kind of Bible, built from the ground up by scholars and pastors in Africa who see the critical need to make Scripture relevant to the everyday lives of Africans. Using the highly readable New Living Translation, the English edition of the Africa Study Bible aims to increase the understanding of the Bible using African insights and experiences to meet the needs of people in Africa and around the world.
We invite you to participate with the writers, editors, and designers of this unique project. Find out how you can help complete the promise of the Africa Study Bible at africastudybible.com.
