About the Author

Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772), a truly remarkable visionary, began his career as a Swedish mining official and member of parliament and became well known throughout Europe as a scientist and prolific writer on scientific and philosophical subjects. After a series of profound religious experiences during midlife, he devoted the remaining twenty-seven years of his life to being a servant of the Lord@ and wrote energetically to communicate a spiritual vision of reality. Since then, the rigid theologies of the eighteenth century have steadily yielded, and the foresighted lucidity of his perspective has gained widening recognition. The fresh and contemporary appeal of Swedenborg's insights arises from the respect he showed for all religious faiths that stress a useful and loving life.

Format: Paperback
This is a book that should really be on your shelf if you are interested in finding your way around Swedenborg's voluminous works.

There is simply no better reference book for tracking down titles, figuring out when they were written, what they are about, and where they have been published.

But beyond this, there are fascinating and carefully written scholarly accounts of the subsequent history and impact of these works.

Knowing something of what it would contain, I got a copy as soon as it was published - but then I opened it and found many unexpected gems as well.

Everyone should know about Emanuel Swedenborg, he wrote the truth! But as he said don't take his word for it, go out and investigate for yourself. That is exactly what I did and over a period of some years I received first hand experience of what he wrote about!
