The Natural Basis of Spiritual Reality
"The body of man is the natural object corresponding most closely to heaven and having the greatest relevance to the truly human form. Hence it is that human anatomy and physiology facilitate our understanding of the doctrine of the Grand Man. How delightful it is to think about the beauty and wonder of the bodily structure and function and at the same time to realize that it is the product of the Lord's love and wisdom descended by degrees through heavens. One may easily be lost in wonder and praise. Yet this joyful experience is only a small trace of what it could be if more study, more time and more people were devoted to building temples of wisdom on the foundations of nature." From the Preface The book contains nineteen chapters. The first three provide the theoretical basis for the text, drawing on ideas in the Writings of Swedenborg.
Then follow fifteen chapters in which the correspondences of nine major bodily organs and systems are explored. The closing Chapter XIX is titled "The interface between the Spiritual and the Physical." Dr. Berridge spent a lifetime as a research biochemist and has written a book in which the religion and science dialog takes on new meaning through the doctrine of correspondences.Specifications:
