The African Women Devotional Bible (AWDB) is a collaborative project of the Bible Societies in Africa who have come together to develop a Devotional Bible by African Women. It is a Scripture resource addressing circumstances and questions African Christian Women face in their daily lives. While the Bible will be suitable for individual devotional reading, it is also expected to be used as a resource for training and equipping church and women leaders in addressing issues women face whether in rural or in rural areas or those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Key Features include:
- 365 Daily Devotions
- 52 Thematic articles addressing real life issues women face in everyday life in Africa.
- Detailed introductions to all books of the Bible
- 52 Analysis of women mentioned in the Bible, exposing their characters, strengths and weaknesses
- Highlight of all the Bible verses with the Women in the Bible and give a short description of each one of them.
- A one-page Bible Reading plan
In addition to English, there are plans to make the Bible available in Portuguese, French, Swahili and Amharic.
