Not illustrated. 1875 edition. Excerpt: ...to the doctrines of that church from any angel, but from the Lord alone, while I was reading the Word. To the end that the Lord might continually be present, He has opened to me the spiritual sense of His Word, in which Divine Truth is in its light. And in this light He is continually present; for His presence in the Word is no otherwise than by the spiritual sense. By the light of this He passes through into the shade in which the sense of the letter is; comparatively as the light of the sun in the daytime does through an interposing cloud. (T. C. R n. 779, 780.) It has been given me to perceive distinctly what comes from the Lord, and what from the angels; what has come from the Lord has been written, and what from the angels has not been writtea (A. E. n. 1183.) The things which I have learned in representations, in visions, and from conversations with-spirits, and with angels, are from the Lord alone. Whenever there has been any representation, vision, or conversation, I was kept interiorly and most deeply in reflection upon it, as to what therefrom was useful and good, thus as to what I might learn, (which reflection was not particularly observed by those who produced the representations and visions, and who conversed; nay, sometimes they were indignant when they perceived that I was reflecting). Thus have I been instructed; therefore by no spirit, nor by any angel, but by the Lord only, from whom is all truth and good. On the contrary, when they wished to instruct me on various subjects, there was scarcely anything but was false; for which reason I was prohibited from believing anything they said; nor was I permitted to infer any such thing whatever as was of their proprium. Moreover, when they wished to persuade me, I perceived an interior...

From the Back Cover:

In his lifetime, Swedish scientist and theologian Emanuel Swedenborg published more than seven thousand pages of commentary based on his communication with the spiritual world. A Compendium of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg extracts key passages from this astounding body of work and groups them by subject for easy reference.

 

Originally compiled in 1875 by Samuel M. Warren, this volume covers many facets of Swedenborg’s philosophy—from the abstract nature of God, man, and the human soul to the everyday application of charity, free will, and spiritual regeneration; from the history and rites of the church to the wonders of the afterlife. A classic of Swedenborgian studies, it remains a vital research tool for scholars and seekers alike.

About the Author:

The Rev. Samuel M. Warren (1822–1908) had a long and varied career. He started his working life as a farmer in Vermont, was a schoolteacher in New York state, and made his fortune working for a roofing company in Cincinnati, where he invented the “tar and gravel” style of roofing that is still in wide use today. He studied law for many years and passed the bar exam, but never practiced, instead electing to become a minister in the New Church. His religious career led him to England, where he met his wife, Sarah. The two of them lived together in England for many years before returning to Massachusetts, where Warren had been born. He was the minister of a New Church society in Brookline, Massachusetts, from 1864 until 1870, and then taught at the New Church Theological School. His later years were devoted to writing, editing, and translating. In 1898 he bought a farm in Vermont, where he spent his summers until his death.
