New biblical translation a bestseller in Norway

January 09, 2012

The first Norwegian translation of the Bible in three decades has remain on top of the bestseller list almost every week since its publication in October. The translation, intended to “read like a novel” (according to its publisher), has no chapters and verses.

“There were people sleeping outside [bookstores] the day before the launch because it was embargoed--it’s a bit ironic seeing that the content has been available for quite some time now,” said Stine Smemo of the Norwegian Bible Society.
