Most Bible Study resources look at the Bible through Western Culture. The words chosen for the original Greek and Hebrew, as well as the situations are often foreign to the cultures of Africa.
This Kickstarter campaign is taking the Bible to Africa with examples and texts that they can relate to. The Bible is being printed now in English through the New Living Translation. You can view some completed works of the Gospel of John by getting this app. Written by Africans for Africans,
"While our goal is to eventually publish the Africa Study Bible (ASB) in all of Africa's major languages, it will initially be published in English using the New Living Translation followed by French and Portuguese translations in the years to come. By printing in these three languages, the ASB will have its greatest impact, reaching up to 70% of literate African Christians. "
Today one in every four Christian is African! This number is increasing daily and what a blessing for the kingdom. They need resources that are relevant to them, so they can be discipled in the Word and be able to share with their friends and families.
Join the Kickstarter Campaign and be a part of bringing the Africa Study Bible into fruition.
"The Africa Study Bible bridges the gap of cultural understanding and Scriptural relevance by revealing the truth and beauty of God's Word through African eyes.
With the launch of this study Bible, Africans will have a resource that speaks directly to their heart, relating the Bible to their everyday life. "
Not only will you be a blessing to the African people, you can get your own rewards based on how much you give. Join the Kickstarter campaign and receive great gifts like
5X8 ASB inspired artwork, Advanced hardcopy of the book, or limited edition Bibles in genuine leather and goat skin.
Much more important is the impact you will have on bringing the Word of God to the African people!
