Christians are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.

To be proclaimers of good news—agents of reconciliation with a message of hope, and faith that takes action. We need wisdom from God’s Word, power from His Spirit, hope from His gospel, and faith that He will equip us for the task.

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, Michele Clark Jenkins and
Stephanie Perry Moore of Sisters in Faith asked the Lord, “What shall we do in the face of continued injustice and oppression?” The answer came as the duo’s third Bible project with Thomas Nelson, The Breathe Life Bible. Looking to replace hopelessness and despair with hopeful encouragement through scriptural clarity, this Bible aims to apply the truth of the gospel to the enduring fight against societal injustice.

The Breathe Life Bible is available at major retailers including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Walmart, as well as independent Christian bookstores.

The Bible includes an introductory article by Reverend Dr. Bernice A. King and features a foreword by
Ambassador Andrew Young. Gospel recording artist and Presiding Prelate of the Pentecostal Churches of Jesus Christ Fellowship, Bishop Hezekiah Walker authored the prayer of dedication. Letters of encouragement written by Reverend Matthew Wesley Williams, president of the Interdenominational Theological Center, Dr. Thelma Thomas Daley, president of the National Council of Negro Women, and president of the NAACP, Derrick Johnson greet readers as they embark upon this empowering
journey through the Scriptures.

Other contributors include Bishop Marvin Sapp, Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Pastor Debra B. Morton, Bishop Kenneth Ulmer, Dr. Franklin Perry, Sr., Dr. Charrita Danley Quimby, Dr. Eric Lee, Pastor Derrick Moore, Arthur Satterwhite, Pastor Tommy Kyllonen, Dr. Helen Delaney, Pastor Tommy Stevenson, LaKeesha Walrond, De’Leice Drane, First Lady Jamell Meeks, James Guitard, Dr. Lakeba Williams, Walter Kimbrough, and Jekalyn Carr.

The Breathe Life Bible’s include articles that explore Scripture through the lens of the BREATHE acronym
(Believe, Reconcile, Exalt, Act, Trust, Hope, and Elevate), Q&A format articles addressing difficult life situations, short biographical profiles, and more features.

“I’m grateful for the team of editors and writers who have created the notes for The Breathe Life Bible,” said Philip Nation, vice president and publisher of Bibles for Thomas Nelson. “This is an edition that leads us to put action to our faith. I hope that their work will give everyone greater courage to stand strong during days that feel overwhelming, shed light on the dark places of this world, and activate us to walk boldly in faith.”

Believers searching for biblical guidance as they pursue justice in the world will find The Breathe Life Bible an important addition to their spiritual library.
