As a western missionary living in East Africa, there are several components that make this a GREAT new tool that I intend to use in my ministry:
AFRICAN TOUCH POINTS connect passage to issues that are particularly relevant to the African church. This has been the greatest highlight for me as I connect so many of these with what I see here.
PROVERBS AND STORIES connect sayings from across the continent (often including the original language). These show how different tribes or cultures have similar wisdom to the Bible.
With additional articles, maps, charts, a narrative timeline of God's work in Africa, artwork and other features, this is truly a Bible that people across Africa are going to embrace. Since the Bible hasn't been released yet (other than the app), I haven't seen all of these features but I plan to purchase this as soon as I can get it here.)
About the NLT...we train pastors and have been using the NIV because it is readily available where we live and the English levels are much easier than the ESV. We've shied away from the NLT because it has been harder to find (and I don't like that the NLT removes a number of theological terms to make it simpler). But with this new Bible, if we can get them here, we will seriously consider shifting all of our training to NLT so that our students can use this new Study Bible.
My only complaint at this point (which is significant) is that some of the supporting touch points and proverbs spiritualize a bit. A major issue in preaching and teaching here is that spiritual meaning can be found in every detail of Scripture, and I think this Study Bible can unfortunately reinforce this problem.
However, again, this is a critical tool at a critical time in the life of the African Church. I pray that God uses it powerfully to bring himself glory across this continent!
