Thomas Nelson, a leading Christian publisher, is preparing to release a new Bible that will provide African-American women with a new tool to help bring their Sunday morning experience into their everyday lives.
The book, "Sisters in Faith Holy Bible: Encouraging and Empowering African-American Women with God's Truth" is written to address the concerns of today's Christian women who are seeking God's wisdom and guidance in every area of their busy and complex lives. The Bible will be available everywhere January 1, 2013.
This Bible will offer a unique African-American perspective, thanks to executive editors Michele Clark Jenkins and Stephanie Perry Moore. Michele and Stephanie are the co-founders of Sisters in Faith, an entity established to create meaningful products that encourage and empower African-American women with God's truth.
"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. 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."
"African-American women have long suffered and long loved the Lord in such a way that being Christian and being an African-American woman is synonymous," adds Moore. "But very few Christian products reveal the African-American woman's voice to the body of Christ and almost none have been created to speak directly to her in a way that relates to her life and her struggle."
Jenkins is the Senior Director of the Public Policy Consulting Group for Griffin & Strong, P.C. and also specializes in entertainment contracts and business development. She is the author of numerous faith-based books and co-editor of several Bible projects. Moore has also served as co-editor for several Bible projects and is the author of over fifty young adult, inspirational fiction books and four adult titles.
