Swedenborg's Theological Writings

Swedenborg Swedenborg's Theological writings are the most engaging and instructive keys to understanding the Lord's revelation that have ever been written. Many of the principle works were published by Swedenborg anonymously, as he referred to himself simply as "A servant of the Lord Jesus Christ." Though he wrote extensively and unceasingly during the latter decades of his life, he neither sought a following for himself nor made the slightest effort to found a denominational church based on his teachings. He understood that a person's conscience cannot be bound by arbitrariness or dogmatism and that everyone must seek the truth that they love. For loving the Lord's truth is to love the Lord himself. In Swedenborg's Writings the Lord of Heaven is revealed, fully God and fully human, so that we can approach Him and know Him. We present here a full range of Swedenborg's Theological Writings available in a variety of translations and editions for the seeker of Spiritual wisdom and freedom.

Arcana  Coelestia

[Top]
Here you can find inspirational books, many enduring classics, pertaining to the spiritual interpretation to the stories in the Word. Swedenborg tells us "When the spiritual internal is opened, and through it communication with heaven and conjunction with the Lord are given, then man becomes enlightened. He is enlightened especially when he reads the Word, because the Lord is in the Word, and the Word is the Divine truth, and the Divine truth is light to angels." Apocalypse explained no. 941

Earths in the Universe

[Top]

Is there life on other planets? This intriguing question is still being debated in scientific circles, but Emanuel Swedenborg attested that he had actually spoken with spirits from other planets in the afterlife. Originally published in 1758, this startling book details Swedenborg's conversations with spirits from Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Venus, and the moon, who discuss their lives on other planets and how their cultures differed from those of earthly life.

Apocalypse Explained & Apocalypse Revealed

[Top]

Apocalypse Explained: In 1757 Emanuel Swedenborg set out to write a comprehensive commentary on the Apocalypse or Book of Revelation. Over the next two years he put together an incredibly comprehensive exegesis of every verse in the Book of Revelation right up to chapter 19:10. In some ways his approach was similar to the way he had written the Arcana Caelestia. But, somewhat mysteriously, before he had completed it he stopped without sending any of it for publication. He left the manuscript neatly written, as if for the press, and marked the word Londini on the title page and the date 1759. Later in 1766 he published a much shorter work entitled Apocalypse Revealed.. The six-volume set of Apocalypse Explained covers the Book of Revelation, chapters 1-19.

Published in 1766, Apocalypse Revealed is a complete study of the book of Revelation. In this work, the only one that he had published during his lifetime, Swedenborg explores the inner sense of the visions seen by the Apostle John the Scroll with Seven Seals, the Four Horses, the Holy City New Jerusalem, and more. This work makes sense of the many confusing images and ideas in the final book of the Bible.

Angelic Wisdom concerning the Divine Love and the Divine Wisdom

[Top]

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.

Angelic Wisdom concerning the Divine Providence

[Top]

What governs the world we live in and the outcome of our lives? This book explains that all the forces operating in creation are contained within, and ultimately serve, an over-arching Divine providence. God is love itself, and therefore the primary goal of Divine providence is our eternal happiness. We attain happiness by being joined to God, the source of life. It is love that conjoins, and genuine love can be given only in freedom. Therefore, in His providence God always seeks to preserve our uniquely human faculties of freedom and reason. Because humans tend to misuse these faculties for evil ends, it is inevitable that painful things will happen. In providence, God permits evil for the sake of maintaining the freedom upon which our salvation depends, but He never wills it. And in the end, those who follow His way find the peace and joy of heaven. As a hidden current silently draws a ship in the ocean, so providence leads us out of our self-involvement and the confusion of merely natural thought, and into the order and joy of heavenly life into the true humanity for which we were created.

Married Love or Conjugial Love

[Top]

Married Love" is the love a husband and wife share while they look to the Lord in useful service to others. This love lasts to eternity with the couple growing closer and closer. It is above every other love that humans can enjoy. But it is said to be very rare at this day. It is attained progressively as the couple approaches the Lord in the life of religion. When attained, the couple will experience inner peace, innocence, tranquility, full trust, inmost friendship and a deep desire for union on all levels of human life. Both the ideal, with practical ways to work for it, and the perversions people can enter into that destroy it, are discussed. The book, since its publication in 1768, has been both controversial due to the subject matter covered, and also inspiring. Its influence has been far reaching, running as a subtle current throughout nineteenth century literature to the present. Its pages give hope for our world where marriage between husband and wife is challenged, showing how each partner can make a different but important contribution to their union.

True Christian Religion

[Top]

True Christianity presents a sensible and satisfying alternative to mainstream Christianity. The last book published by Emanuel Swedenborg, it serves as both the keystone in the architecture of his theology and the summary of his far-reaching psychological insights. This work, Swedenborg's Magnum Opus provides unique answers to humankind's perennial questions about the nature of God and about Jesus---not only what his purpose was and how he fulfilled it, but why his life and death are still relevant to us now.
