"The Africa Bible Commentary was able to speak to me to help me to understand Scripture within my context. So, I’m able to understand the Bible better from my context as an African. So, it is a tool that has actually transformed anyone who is a Bible scholar and a Bible user in the continent."

"The Africa Bible Commentary deals with the challenges of the day to day issues that impact the people here in Africa—spiritually, psychologically, diseases like HIV and AIDS, conditions poverty, war. It’s not just about interpreting the Scripture, but it’s also about addressing issues that have an impact on Africa."

"I hear from my church members that they can face the people, they can have a good testimony, and they know God’s Word clearly."
