Our Soul's Awakening
The Stories in the early chapters of the Book of Genesis have captured the imagination of people over many generations. The last hundred years have seen them embroiled n controversy and much questioning over their relevance in our modern world. Can they still speak to us today? Do they contain ageless wisdom which has contemporary relevance? OUR SOULS AWAKENING: Allegory of the Genesis Story endeavours to achieve a reconciliation of the inconsistencies, and even absurdities, found n the early chapters of Genesis using divine inspiration as the key. The purpose is to unveil some of the deeper, or inner spiritual meaning contained in them utilising the relationship of natural objects to spiritual realities, a principle called the law of correspondences expounded in 1749 by Emanuel Swedenborg, the Swedish scientist an Christian seer. Each chapter reveals unsuspected treasures which lie deep within the literal text.
The awakening of our soul is a higher life force, which can lead to spiritual transformation and rebirth, and the subsequent trials and tribulations that surface while we endeavour to develop this new state, is shown to the all embracing subject matter of the biblical stories of Creation, The Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and his sons, and the Tower of Babel.Specifications:
