Blurb: (Danish/Norwegian?)  New Testament Bible explanations for salvation seeking Bible readers? Translated to the best of our ability with Google translation. 

This is a commentary on the Epistle to the Romans, translated from a German original.


Fun context: In 1866 written Norwegian was basically Danish, and I wonder how many Norwegians would be able to read your book, though probably more in Southern Norway.

This book is of a religious nature, published in Stavanger, now known for oil, though in the day this was published Stavanger was part of the so-called Norwegian bible belt.

Many of the Norwegians that emigrated to the United States at the time of this book’s publication were very religious and brought their books with them. Many of the settlements are known to have been in Minnesota, but many Norwegians went to Chicago first, and then disbursed.
