If you’ve read here for a while, you might know that I love reading and reviewing all different kinds of Bibles. I love seeing how each translation accomplishes it’s purpose and how they stay true to the original text. Also, you likely know that I have a special spot in my heart for Africa. So combine the two and you’ve got me interested!
Recently, I learned about a Kickstarter campaign for the Africa Study Bible. Here’s a little info:
“With the ASB, we’re bringing the power of Scripture to Africa in a new and culturally
relevant way,” says Dr. Matthew Elliott, president of Oasis, publisher of the ASB.
“Under the leadership of an 11-member editorial board of scholars from across Africa, we’ve brought together 350 writers and editors from over 40 African countries, representing 50 denominations. This is an unprecedented project that will impact the global church.”
I love that the Bible has been put together by Africans for Africans. Since most Bibles are written from an American or European standpoint, I can see how this would be a huge benefit to have this tool available.

There is only about 58 hours left on the Kickstarter campaign so head over to the link above to help if you want!
