    "....Includes 'Negro National Anthem' lyrics"

    BY ROSEMARY BLACK
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

    A new version of the Good Book may help African-American
    teens gain a better understanding of religion.

    The just-published “Our Heritage and Faith Holy Bible for African-American Teens”
    will try to answer the difficult questions kids have, according to TheGrio.com.
    The tome, published by Zondervan, is selling on Amazon for $20.15.

    Co-author Wade Hudson says it’s aimed at helping readers who may believe that
    questioning statements like “God is able,” can mean one is “un-Christian.”
    Hudson’s company, Just Us Books, and Zondervan Publishng House partnered up on the book.

    African Heritage Bible

    I think this bible is the one produced by the African Hebrew Nation in Dimona.
    It does (at least the one i had) have all black pics in it, and all things relating to black people are hi-lighted and explained.
    But in the end it is a king james version.

    No pararealist, I thought it may have been, but it isn't.
