South Asia Bible Commentary
The Bible speaks to all cultures. But its message was first heard in the context of ancient cultures, and we hear it today with ears that are attuned to the language of our own cultures. In South Asia, we hear it in the context of a diverse region where many religions flourish. What does the Bible say to us?
This question prompted South Asian scholars to produce this unique book, the first one-volume Bible commentary produced in South Asia by South Asians for South Asians – and for the world.
Pastors, students and lay leaders serving the rapidly growing church in South Asia will find this an invaluable resource that helps them to interpret and apply the Bible in the light of South Asian culture and realities. Christians all around the world will also benefit from its powerful and relevant insights into the biblical text.
The South Asia Bible Commentary gives a section-by-section interpretation that provides a contextual, readable and immensely useful guide to the entire Bible. Special articles summarise biblical teaching on important issues. Readers will appreciate its fresh insights and direct style that engage both heart and mind.
