One of the most widely used books (Husandagtsbog) for the family altar among Norwegian Lutherans in America. Originally published in 1883 and translated into English by Peer Strømme, this recent edition presents a fresh translation for today’s readers by Mark DeGarmeaux. Author Nils Laache (1831-1892) was a respected Lutheran pastor in Norway. His devotions arranged according to the Church Year are filled with Christian comfort and hope and draw from early church fathers such as Augustine and Kempis and other Lutheran teachers such as Arndt. Includes many hymn stanzas of Danish and Norwegian origin, Scripture index, daily lessons for the Church Year, morning and evening prayers, and brief biographies of hymnwriters.
