Emanuell Swedenborg takes you up close and personal to the spirit world.
His insights are unique.
Most of this book focuses on the after life (your eventual death) experiance, that you will encounter, "celestial angels" who will determine how you lived your life.
This can send you to heaven or hell, or reborn back to earth to learn more from life, for advancement to that celestial heaven in the presence of God.
The detail of love within the spirit world in this work is exceptional.
Read with an open mind and enjoy.

Conjugial Love stands out in the works of Swedenborg because of its lopsided implications. I would normally give his books five stars no matter what, but not this one.

The topic is marriage. Marriage is supposed to be forever. Very high ideal. However, as you all know, life is not like this. When Swedenborg wrote this (he died in 1772) the divorce rate was a little lower than it is today, if they even had a divorce rate back then. His ideals come across as rigid and are presented in an authoritarian way. It just doesn't wash.

This book illuminates the truth about love for one other person. It paints a picture of an ideal, and while I know I cannot live up to it, I can strive to love my husband the way an angel loves her husband in heaven.

I found this book very informative and intriguing. It was hard to put down. The author is extremely conscientious about details and backs up his observations in a way that is hard to discredit. A good read for anyone interested in the afterlife.
