Special Contributions and Appreciations
"The publisher extends a heartfelt thank-you to the African Hebrew Israelite community now living in Israel (northeast Africa) for the work of their research committee and Hebrew translators under the directorship of Sgan Elyahshuv Ben Yehuda. Without their scholarly input and the untiring and hospitable assis-tance of other members of the community for lodging, travel, photography arrange-ments, and the scheduling of interviews with the indigenous people still living in the Bible land, it would have been difficult to validate the authenticity of certain historical sites of ancient Palestine and its original peoples."
"Special thanks to Dr. Shdieak Ben Yehuda, Hermeneutic scholar and Dean,
The Institute School of the Prophets, Jerusalem, Israel,
who always knew another ancient Bible site to be studied in the Holy Land."
Excerpts from the book
A FOUNDATION OF TRUTH
For too long in the history of Western civilization, persons of African descent have been stereotyped in negative ways which have caused them to question not only their own identity but also their part in God's plan of salvation.
Afrocentricity, the idea that Africa and persons of African descent must be understood as making significant contributions to world civilization as proactive subjects within history, is the methodology with which the Original African Heritage Study Bible endeavors to reappraise ancient biblical traditions. The impressive number of volumes which have appeared in the past few years attempting to engage in corrective histori-ography" attest to the fact that it is no longer enough to limit the discussion to "black theology" or even African theology; instead, Africa, her people, nations, and cultures, must be acknowledged as making primary, direct contributions to the development of Christianity. The purpose of the Original African Heritage Study Bible is to interpret, the Bible as it relates specifically to persons of African descent and thereby to foster an appreciation of the multiculturalism inherent in the Bible.
We believe it important to stress that our research is not presented from a racist viewpoint, but rather from the viewpoint of racial pluralism and inclusiveness, seeking to bring forth the truth from a story which has had many dubious interpretations. We pray that it might serve as an important stepping stone, indeed a cornerstone, for establishing a founda-tion of truth. Fact, not speculation, is the basis upon which this work has been founded. We offer the simple facts as presented in the Bible, supported by other historical evidence, and by sound logic and reasoning.
