Tyndale sent out emails asking us to help, so I am:
"Enter the Africa Study Bible, featuring Tyndale's New Living Translation, and built from the ground up by African theologians and pastors who see the critical need to make Scripture relevant to the everyday lives of their people. With the editorial (2,400 plus features, 350 writers and editors from 40 African countries and representing 50 denominations) nearly complete, we're only steps away from getting the ASB into the hands of millions of Africans but we need your help."
"Oasis International, the publisher of the ASB in partnership with Tyndale, is now working to raise one million dollars to print the first 100,000 study Bibles for Africa through private donations and a Kickstarter campaign. Will you help us spread the word about this project?"
"The Africa Study Bible is a Bible with study tools written by African pastors and scholars. Our goal is to increase the understanding of the Bible using African insights and experiences to meet the needs of the church in Africa and around the world.“Pastors and scholars” will include ministry and lay-leaders who function as pastors and church leaders. “African” writers are defined as those who are African in knowledge, heart and voice.
The expression of this body is that the Africa Study Bible is to feed God’s people as we all need constant feeding from the source of life – God and his Holy Word. The African people should see themselves and their cultural context in the study notes. Our goal is that the notes will challenge and encourage the readers to live as God’s people in Africa. The Africa Study Bible is to concentrate on knowledge and application, teaching people how to apply truth to their specific situation. It should empower Jesus’ mandate to make disciples. The Africa Study Bible will help people make a link between biblical truth and life transformation.
