A new bible is coming for African-American women! Thomas Nelson will be releasing Sisters in Faith Holy Bible: Encouraging and Empowering African-American Women with God’s Truth on January 1, 2013. You can get it on Amazon or at your favorite bookstore.
According to the executive editors Michele Clark Jenkins and Stephanie Perry Moore, the upcoming bible will have a unique African-American perspective. “African-American women have a different history and a different presence from any other demographic,” said Jenkins.
“Their history is characterized by strength in the face of instability; making a-way out of no-way and self-definition in the face of a lost identity. A substantial number of African-American women are working mothers and oftentimes single mothers. Most are looking to cut a new path. The Sisters in Faith Bible is designed to speak directly to the specific needs of this group of women.”
I’m looking forward to this! This would make a thoughtful gift for someone.
