A new Bible commentary written exclusively by African theologians has been launched in Kenya. The commentary is the work of 70 contributors from 25 African countries and is designed to explain the Bible from an African perspective.
The one-volume commentary is not a replacement for the Bible, says editor Tokunboh Adeyemo, but seeks to make its content clear to Christians in Africa.
It addresses contemporary issues such as HIV/Aids, female genital mutilation, refugees, ethnic conflict and witchcraft.
The book is published by Zondervan. The writers are from 10 major Christian denominations, but do not include a representative from the Roman Catholic Church.
