A new version of the Bible in the Norwegian language is the northern nation’s best-selling book for 2012.
The new Bible overtook the novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” to earn the top spot. It has sold almost 160,000 copies in a nation of five million.
The Norwegian Bible Society said on its website, “The Bible is the most sold and read book in the world, and the most important book in our culture.”
It said the society will therefore “present The Word of God to people in a language they understand and at a price they can pay.”
