Book Excerpt: 
. . .had come in confident and happy, and now all at once his spirit was gone, and he looked as if he were entirely done for.

The schoolmaster understood quite well why the pastor was so distressed. He and every one else knew that at one time the clergyman had been a man of rare promise; but in his student days he had "gone the pace," so to speak, and, in consequence, had suffered a stroke. After that he was never the same. Sometimes he seemed to forget that he was only the ruin of a man; but when reminded of it, a sense of deep despondency came over him. Now he sat there as if paralyzed. It was a long time before any one ventured to speak.

"You mustn't take it like that, Parson," the schoolmaster said at last, trying to make his voice very soft and low.

"Hush, Storm! I know that I'm not a great preacher; still I couldn't have believed it possible that you would wish to take the living from me."

Moving, perceptive book about religious mania, full of both intellectual and emotional intelligence. The author, who was herself deeply religious, does an excellent job of telling the story without judging the main characters.

Extremely relevant to the world today - it's a shame this book isn't bett

Vad glad!!! Jag är att jag läste den här nu!!

This book is based on a historical event in 1890's where multiple families in a small Swedish village of Dalecarlia emigrated in mass to Jerusalem. The story starts with Ingmar Ingmarsson and then expands to the entire parish where Ingmarssons lives spanning across multiple generations. It deals wit

Fantastiska Selma gör mig aldrig besviken. Mycket fascinerande historia och såklart ett underbart språk.

Tyckte mycket om den här boken och är glad att jag äntligen börjat läsa Lagerlöf. Har dragit mig för att läsa Jerusalem eftersom jag tänkt att den skulle vara tung och ointressant? Glad att bli överbevisad. Tycker Lagerlöf skriver fram personer och natur så fint och uppskattar blandningen av det and

‘Jerusalem’ was my first book authored by Selma Lagerlof, an authoress I am certain I would have never read and a chance encounter made this possible. With a splendid description and an equally splendid narration, Selma Lagerlof left me both amazed and shocked with ‘Jerusalem’.

‘Jerusalem’ narrates

An unexpectedly fun read. Nice ending, with not everything wrapped up neatly, but also not leaving the reader feeling a sequel is needed. I would now like to read more of her books, and I see why she won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her description of the life of 'ordinary' people is well done wi

I enjoyed the writing style of the author but found the structure of the book awkward. The rating is actually 2.5 stars.

Så vackert skriven. Selma = King

The way it´s written and the speed of the plot make this book completely contemporary.
Even more interesting if you consider that the whole thing is based on a true story.
