Editors of the online Dictionary of African Christian Biography are publishing a selection of stories as the Journal of African Christian Biography, which will “make African Christian biographies more readily accessible and immediately useful in African congregations and classrooms,” said Jonathan J. Bonk, the JACB editor. Published in monthly installments with an annual cumulative volume available online, the JACB is “intended to promote the research, publication, and use of African Christian biography within Africa by serving as an academically credible but publically accessible source of information on Christianity across the continent,” he added.
The June 2016 monthly inaugural issue is available as a free download at www.dacb.org/journal-acb-issues.html. To receive the monthly and yearly electronic issues of the journal free of charge sign up at www.dacb.org/journal-acb.html. Suggestions of contributions and articles on African biography or church history germane to Christianity and Christians in Africa are welcome. Likewise, the editors welcome suggestions of recent publications, articles, or books, that should be brought to the attention of the journal’s readers.
