Secrets of Heaven
The first and largest published theological works by Emanuel Swedenborg, Secrets of Heaven reveals the hidden meaning of Genesis and Exodus and also the wonders of heaven and the chaos of hell....To peruse the pages of Secrets of Heaven is to make a spiritual journey with one of the most remarkable visionaries the Western world has ever produced. Emanuel Swedenborg guides us through Scripture, specifically through the verses of Genesis and Exodus. From deep within the Bible, he uncovers the hidden meaning of these books, revealing evidence, for example, of emotional and mental trials that Jesus underwent during his life on earth.
He also reveals
the mysteries of the afterlife and the angelic welcome and
process of self-discovery that await us after we die. Translator

"With regard to Swedenborg's Secrets of Heaven, there never was
a time more pressing than now to understand that the internal
spiritual meaning of the Christian Bible refers not to the
special dispensation of one sect, but to the evolution of a
higher spiritual consciousness within each individual."
---Eugene Taylor, Ph.D., director of the Cambridge Institute of
Psychology and Religion.
