Bishop Laache’s Handbook

Introduction

One of the treasures of the old Norwegian Synod was a handbook of short devotions written by Bishop Niels Laache. Nowadays members of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod frequently use the Handbook for their family and personal devotions. Please note that this version of the Handbook has been modified slightly to facilitate online use.

This section is under construction. Devotions will be added daily until it is complete.
