Africa Bible Commentary

Non-Africa rights belong to Zondervan according to the blurb in the 1st edition, I understand a second edition has been published since then.
I have found the special articles very insightful and worthwhile reading.

I hesitated to buy it until I saw the list of special interest articles.
It complements Biblical Christianity in African Perspective by Wilbur O'Donovan (Paternoster, 1996) which would also be a worthy addition to the Accordance library.
This is an excellent and practical sourcebook. Not only does it challenge traditional western ways of thinking (in a good way) it will also introduce subjects for discussion that are usually ignored in a western worldview.
Anyone who has any personal or pastoral dealings with Africans will find it enlightening. It's question-and-answer methodology makes it very approachable, and very easy to dip into without having to read it from cover to cover.
