About the Author

Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) was a Swedish scientist, nobleman, and theologian who spent his life investigating the mysteries of the soul. Born in Stockholm to a staunchly Lutheran family, he graduated from the University of Uppsala and then traveled to England, Holland, France, and Germany to study the leading scientists of the time. He gained favor with Sweden’s King Charles XII, who gave him the position of overseer of the Swedish mining industry. Later, he was given a seat on the Swedish House of Nobles by Charles XII’s successor, Queen Ulrika Eleonora. Between 1743 and 1745 he began to have visions of heaven, hell, and Jesus Christ which resulted in a stream of books about the nature of God, the afterlife, and the inner meaning of the Bible. He devoted the last decades of his life to studying Scripture and presenting his own unique theology to the world.

The first time I read this boook was in a college course. It was a good text for a class, being straightforward but also sparking many entertaining and intricate discussions. Now that I am done the class, Divine Love and Wisdom is a wonderful book to pick up and read whenever. It desribes the Sun of heaven and the relationship between this world and the next. For solid and simple to understand ideas about God and His nature and the effects the spiritual world has on the natural and vice versa, this is a versatile and thought-porvoking book that I highly recommend!

These books are a wonderful guide to how this life relates to the next and how God directs all life. They answer questions about why bad things happen, the purpose of life, and order in the universe, in a philosophical way that is practical and easy to understand. If you are looking for something deeper than scientific answers, I highly recommend Divine Love and Wisdom and Divine Providence!

This work is essential reading for anyone seeking clear, sensible answers about the nature of God, and the relationship between the heavens and the earth (or the spiritual world and the natural world). I read this in college many years ago, and return to it frequently. It just makes so much sense.

I totally would recommend the "Divine Love and Wisdom" (Emanuel Swedenborg) as a must read, for anyone out there who is willing to delve into the science of religion. With that in mind, Swedenborg will bring the searching personality closer to the fiber of creation by the Creator " ..that we are all an essential part of God's Divine plan, and that without us God's plan could not come to fruition". Additionally, he (Swedenborg)opens the door to the fundamentals of spirituality as he explains in the text. Now, will this be a recommendation? Yes, and Yes again.

Format: Paperback
Divine Love and Wisdom is definitely not the easy access book if you want to get to know Swedenborg. This particular translation, though, is easy to read and in modern English.

Swedenborg presents this work in highly abstract language, more so than any other book he has written. This is philosophy at high density. That said, the core ideas of Swedenborg's teachings are probably nowhere else so clear as here. A tough read, but if you already are studying this author sooner or later you will open this one.
