carol5 Stars Out Of 5Africa Bible CommentaryNovember 26, 2014carolQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second time I've bought this commentary. I have read neither of them, but report the reaction of my sister, who has read it. It was a gift to her, since she is a missionary in Africa. She loved it, thought it had refreshing input from African scholars, and thought it encouraging and beneficial to Christians in Africa. In fact, when it came time for her to leave Malawi two years ago to do further studies in the US, she gave the commentary I had given her to one of the pastors in the local church. So I now owe her another copy, which I will bring when I visit next year.
