Norwegian is the language spoken in Norway, a country that is considered officially Christian. Any person born in Norway from one or both Norwegian parents is incorporated automatically to the Church of Norway, which is Evangelical-Lutheran in nature. This free BibleMax module features the Norwegian translation of the Bible. Being this a Protestant country, the Bible used by Norwegians does not feature the Apocrypha, which are books like Tobit, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Maccabees I and II, and others, that aren't considered as canonical by most Protestant denominations. Thus, this translation of the Bible will be of limited usefulness for Catholics and Orthodox Christians. To display this module, you will need BibleMax free core software, which can be downloaded from the developer's site. Also, it is advisable to have a font that supports the special orthographic signs of the Norwegian alphabet. If you want to have many more Bible translations, as well as maps, commentaries, references and other materials, you may want to get the free CD-ROM by paying a symbolic fee covering the P&H costs.
