Divine Love and Wisdome - Emanual Swedenborg
Divine Love and Wisdom contains Swedenborg's major statement on two fundamental aspects of God's nature. These two basic cosmic forces intimately determine our life as human beings. "Love" denotes the vital, valuing, and active powers of the soul, deciding the ultimate goals of our thought and action. "Wisdom," by contrast, represents the cognitive power of the soul, providing the technical means for these goals' realization. Swedenborg's work shows how God is love and life itself, bestowing these gifts on all other creatures.
This highly readable New Century Edition in George Dole's sensitive translation admirably reflects the coherence and consistency of Swedenborg's language, while Gregory Johnson's introductory essay on Swedenborg's Metaphysics of Creation offers a comprehensive guide to this important theological work."Features:
