Can you help translate this Chineese text into English?
A friend of mine was given this book - he wants to know what it's actually about. Would any person who can read Chineese kindly provide a translation.
A friend has suggested that it's a fortune telling book. Prize for best answer will go to anybody who can provide the following:
* A literal translation of the text
* Any information as to what the purpose of the image may be.
* Any background cultural information.
I think you have to be a fluent chinese reader / speaker to answer this. Please nobody bother posting links to dictionaries - they will get downvoted really fast.

As I recall, Bulgarian is written using Roman letters. Try substituting the corresponding Cyrillic letter, and look up the resulting word in a Russian dictionary. The Slavic languages have much in common, and this may do the job. I was able to translate a Slovenian phrase using this stunt.

The title is 福德正神 meaning 'God of the Land' as depicted in the picture.
I'm not quite sure what 福而有德千家敬, 正则为神万世尊 means though!
