We invite you to join us for the 2005 International Conference on the Bible and Its African Roots. The conference offers the unique opportunity to critically examine and personally experience the scope, richness and antiquity of African culture and civilization and to consider the contributions and links of those societies to the Old and New Testaments. Visits and presentations will investigate the Bible's roots in Africa and develop a more rounded and nuanced understanding of the region and its ancient heritage.
With an indigenous character and Imperial legacy, Ethiopia and its capital have long been a source of pride for the Pan-African movement. A lively city, Addis Ababa is home to 3.5 million people, the secretariat for the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and is said to host more embassies and missions than any city other than Washington, DC.
