Talbot Alumnus Edits Groundbreaking African Bible Commentary
Talbot alumnus Tokunboh Adeyemo served as Editor of The Africa Bible Commentary (Zondervan, 2006). The work is the first Bible commentary written exclusively by African theologians, and represents the labor of 70 contributors from 25 countries. Adeyemo says that the groundbreaking commentary attempts to make the Bible clear to Christians in Africa by giving an African perspective, as well as by addressing a wide range of issues of contemporary cultural importance.

Prayer for Talbot Expansion
The administration, faculty, support staff, and student body of Talbot invite you to join them in prayer for the planned major expansion of Talbot facilities, which will be the focus of an upcoming development fundraising campaign. The exciting numerical growth experienced by Talbot, coupled with a substantial increase in the variety of degree programs, has made this expansion a critical need. We will keep you informed of the progress of design and of the campaign, as plans develop. But we are convinced it is both appropriate and essential that the very first foundation laid for this project be our prayers.
