    Om Compendium of the Theological Writings o

    In his lifetime, Swedish scientist and theologian Emanuel Swedenborg published more than seven thousand pages of commentary based on his communication with the spiritual world. A Compendium of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg extracts key passages from this astounding body of work and groups them by subject for easy reference.Starting with the nature of God and creation, the book covers the birth of humanity and gives a thorough overview of Swedenborg's five churches, or the five ages of human history as understood spiritually. It includes sections on concepts that are central to Swedenborg's thought, such as regeneration, correspondences, faith, charity, free will, and marriage, as well as more universal questions: how God is present in our lives, why evil exists in the world, the nature of the human soul, and how we are connected to the divine on a deep inner level. The final quarter of the book is devoted to Swedenborg's most popular subject-the nature of the afterlife, including heaven, hell, and the world of spirits.Originally compiled in 1875, this volume remains an important research tool for anyone who wants an overview of Swedenborg's theology or a springboard for investigating his thought in depth.
