1998 BIBLE READING GUIDE

Removable supplement to the Lutheran Spokesman

We thank Keith Olmanson, recently retired from the pastoral ministry, for compiling our 1998 daily Bible readings. He writes: “These Bible reading suggestions are the ones used for the daily devotions in the Book Of Family Prayer. The book was originally written in Norwegian by Nils Jacob Laache who was the Lutheran bishop of Trondheim, Norway during the last part of the 19th century. Many of the hymn selections are from the English translation of the fifth edition.” Hymn selections are given in parentheses for each day of the non- festival half of the church year (Trinity season). For hymns for the festival half of the church year, refer to the table on page 837 and 838 of The Lutheran Hymnal. — The Editor
