The Presence of Other Worlds - Wilson Van Dusen
In 1974, Wilson Van Dusen published a groundbreaking study on the findings of Emanuel Swedenborg, a book that has inspired thousands to look more closely into Swedenborg's works and to consider the implications of living a useful and thoughtfully directed life. Now, on the thirtieth anniversary of this remarkable work, Chrysalis Books presents an updated second edition of the best selling book ever published on the philosophy and theology of Emanuel Swedenborg. An account of the monumental journey of an eighteenth-century scientist and philosopher into the depths of his own mind and to spiritual worlds beyond, The Presence of Other Worlds shows how Swedenborg's personal experiences radiate with insights about psychological and spiritual developments that are relevant to modern-day seekers.
It has been hailed since its first publication as a passport for all spiritual voyagers into the human psyche and the inner sanctum of the afterlife. Dr. Raymond Moody, author of Life After Life, provides a foreword that explains the importance of Swedenborg's mystical experiences in connection with the near-death experience. Dr. James Lawrence presents a tribute to Wilson Van Dusen and his enduring legacy in an afterword.Features:
