My copy of the Africa Bible Commentary arrived this morning. I mentioned this book when it was released but i hadn’t actually seen a copy until today. Its an incredible piece of work with a great story behind it of 70 African theologians and scholars. As well as insightful articles on a wide range of topics, its also a full on Bible Commentary that takes you all the way through the Scriptures with African perspectives. One of the contributors is Joe Kapolyo who I sometimes see in the Church Missionary Society office in London.
Also worth a look, and recommended by SmartChristian, is Bible Maps. This program lets you click on place names in the Bible and see a Satellite image. I had trouble finding the Garden of Eden and Sodom liked like a pile of sand.
