Written at a time of intense theological debate on the nature of God's governance of the world, The Divine Providence deals with a world so troubled that the loving hand of God is often hidden from our sight and brought into question.
This companion work to Divine Love and Wisdom shows how divine nature governs human life and creation and describes how individual human freedom is inherent in creation and empowered by a God-given ability to understand and decide. This original and thought provoking work suggests that only divine love and wisdom can provide us with the accountability that gives meaning to our lives.About the Author:
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772), a truly remarkable visionary, began his career as a Swedish mining official and member of parliament and became well known throughout Europe as a scientist and prolific writer on scientific and philosophical subjects. After a series of profound religious experiences during midlife, he devoted the remaining twenty-seven years of his life to being a servant of the Lord@ and wrote energetically to communicate a spiritual vision of reality. Since then, the rigid theologies of the eighteenth century have steadily yielded, and the foresighted lucidity of his perspective has gained widening recognition. The fresh and contemporary appeal of Swedenborg's insights arises from the respect he showed for all religious faiths that stress a useful and loving life.
