Africa Study Bible

Major Christian Organizations Partner to Launch Africa Study Bible
Kickstarter Campaign Planned to Help Raise 1 Million for 100,000 Study Bibles 

“The Africa Study Bible is a project that has almost unprecedented ability to positively influence the body of Christ in Africa, perhaps more than other single continental-wide project in the history of Christianity.”
–Dr. Danny McCain, University of Jos, Nigeria

Wheaton, IL – Millions of English-speaking Africans know and love Christ, but for
many, God’s word is hard to grasp. With nearly every full evangelical study Bible
written from the viewpoint of the United States and United Kingdom, Africans have
lacked a resource that connects with their unique experience, hindering discipleship.
But that is about to change as major Christian organizations, led by Oasis
International, are joining together to launch the Africa Study Bible (ASB), a six-year,
cross-continental effort that has produced the first study Bible developed by Africans
for Africans.

 photo bible-open-1_zpsa0jkxbg8.jpg

“With the ASB, we’re bringing the power of Scripture to Africa in a new and culturally
relevant way,” says Dr. Matthew Elliott, president of Oasis, publisher of the ASB. “Under the leadership of an 11-member editorial board of scholars from across Africa, we’ve brought together
350 writers and editors from over 40 African countries, representing 50 denominations. This is an
unprecedented project that will impact the global church.”

With the editorial nearly complete, Oasis, with the support of its partners, is inviting fellow Christians to join with
them in helping get the ASB into the hands of Africans. With a goal of raising one million dollars to print the first
100,000 copies, Oasis is seeking private donors as well as launching a Kickstarter campaign, which begins
April 18 and runs through June 16. Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign have the opportunity to receive
incentives ranging from artwork prints to limited Italian leather editions of the ASB as well as all-expense paid
trips to the launch of the ASB in the United States and in Africa.

“Our goal is to have the first run of the ASB available in Africa by the end of 2016,” says Elliott. “We already
know of more than 100 million people in denominations and movements in Africa whose leaders want to use
the ASB for discipleship so there is a lot of anticipation throughout the continent.”

Designed to grow the faith of African church members, teach them to evangelize their communities, and apply
a biblical worldview to their society, the ASB uses the New Living Translation and includes 2,400 plus features
such as application notes, stories and proverbs, touchpoints that link Africa and the Bible, learn notes that
explain basic theology, and major theme articles that apply the Bible to key issues. Oasis plans to initially
release the ASB in English with French and Portuguese translations in development. Oasis is also developing
a full-featured app of the study Bible.

To support the effort, Oasis is partnering with Tyndale House Publishers to create the study Bible. Other
participants include Willow Creek and Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit, IFES (International Fellowship
of Evangelical Students), Scripture Union, Africa Leadership, TransWorld Radio, Moody Broadcasting, Center
for Early African Christianity, PJA (Publications pour la Jeunesse Africane), MMD Global, The Livingstone
Corporation, InSight Books, Urban Ministries Inc., and the Association of Evangelicals in Africa, with additional
participants being added on a regular basis.

“We have seen the hand of God in amazing ways throughout the development of this project,” says Elliott. “In
the words of our supervising editor, Dr. John Jusu, the content of the ASB is bubbling up from the cultures of
Africa. The biblical truth is percolating through our own cultures and stories to create a rich and textured
tapestry that Africans can claim as their own.”

Spokesperson Bio – Meet Matthew Elliott

Dr. Matthew Elliott serves as president of Oasis International and project director for
the Africa Study Bible.

Oasis International serves areas of the English-speaking world where people lack
access to affordable Christian literature and the Bibles needed to mature in their faith.
In these countries, the measure of annual incomes is often in hundreds, not thousands,
of dollars. The great needs of Africa, in particular, drive Oasis to concentrate on this
continent, where the Church is experiencing significant growth yet printed resources
are scarce.

Matthew earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and master’s degree in New
Testament at Wheaton College, as well as a Masters of Theology and a Doctorate of Philosophy in New
Testament Studies from University of Aberdeen (Scotland). He was ordained at College Church in Wheaton,
Illinois under Dr. Kent Hughes. He is the author of Faithful Feelings: Rethinking Emotion in the New Testament
(InterVarsity UK/Kregel) and Feel (Tyndale House).

Matthew, his wife, Laura, and three children reside in the Chicago area.

As of today, $36,000 has been raised! Please take the time to read about this great campaign to put Bibles in the hands of the Africans! This is truly a remarkable idea and is definitely needed.
