'It's the greatest book!'

Fred Allen of American Bible Society talks about the African American Jubilee Edition of the Bible.

From the January 2001 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The African American Jubilee Edition of the Bible isn't a new translation or interpretation of the Bible, but is a new setting for the King James Version and the Contemporary English Version. Each version includes a 283-page preface comprising essays and images that call for fresh engagement with the Holy Scriptures through the lens of the African American experience.
