Bible gets African interpretation

The first Bible commentary written exclusively by African theologians has been launched in Kenya - BBC News
Written by 70 contributors from 25 countries, the Africa Bible Commentary aims to explain the Bible from an African perspective.
It contains local proverbs and folk lore to help interpret the scriptures.
The commentary also addresses contemporary issues such as HIV/Aids, female genital mutilation, refugees, ethnic conflict and witchcraft.
Published by the Evangelical publisher Zondervan, The Africa Bible Commentary gives a section-by-section interpretation of the gospel. See complete article: News - Bible gets African interpretation
