We are excited to launch the first ever Africa Study Bible! The Africa Study Bible is the first Bible to take God’s Word and explain it through African eyes. The Bible will not just be a blessing to the church in Africa but also to us here in the United States.


The Africa Study Bible opens our worldview and understanding as the African Diaspora here in America and connects us to our heritage. – Dr. Jeffrey C. Wright
