Take a bite Don't be shy It won't hurt Would I lie? The Serpent to Eve The Black Bible Chronicles are a series of books set on retelling of the Holy Bible in what can only be described as slang , though that sounds pejorative. Written by P. McCary beginning in to combat what he saw as an "abandoning of God" by black culture, the books use a modern urban dialect to retell the major tales of the Bible, from Adam and Eve to Noah 's flood to the parting of the Red Sea and on through the birth and death of Jesus Christ. Throughout the books, McCary expunges the dated terminology and semantics of the King James Version for a more laid-back and conversational tone. Hearing Jesus say things like "dissed" and "bro" referring to Peter's repeated denials of Christ can be a bit jarring at first, but the books are never irreverent and often sheds a new and modern light on the teachings of the Bible.
In September of , P. McCary published the first of a two-volume set entitled Black Bible Chronicles. She felt that in order to reach young people of the streets and to get them to learn about God, the Bible has to be translated into a language they could understand—namely, African American English.
