Product Description

Product Description

What happens to us after we die? What is heaven like? How do angels live? In his classic work Heaven and Hell, Swedish visionary Emanuel Swedenborg gives readers a detailed road map to the afterlife, describing the process that our soul goes through after death, the nature of heaven and hell, angels and demons, all in meticulous detail. Afterlife is an abridged version of Heaven and Hell, with passages specially chosen to highlight the essence of Swedenborg's work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deleted it from my Kindle 17 Jan 2014
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was going to be a good read, but I was sadly disappointed and gave up and deleted it from my kindle after struggling to get into it.

It is a bit dated in its delivery and long-winded in its explanations to the point of confusion.

This book belongs in the past for it is a bit judgemental in that it says those who commit adultery will be dealt with - and nowadays most folk are on their 2nd marriage - so no chance for them to get to heaven eh?

It also says animals don't go to heaven as humans are different to them, which I found unbelievably horrid, for I was looking forward to seeing my beloved dog and cat again some day.

This book belongs to a bygone era where folk had hang-ups and guilt about everything they did, so I'm afraid it wasn't my cup of tea.

5.0 out of 5 stars A religious scientists viewpoint 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find this book a brave and intellectually honest rendition of very personal experiences by a well respected scientist who was above caring for potential damage it could do to his reputation and employment in his era and even nowadays if he were alive.
I also had a profound spiritual experience as an agnostic medical scientist which has significantly enhanced my scientific and religious life.
The insight revealed in his discourse accords with hundreds of near death experiences of other credible and sane responsible people from all walks of life who recall much briefer exposure to the region's of the spirit world in more recent times.
This troubled world would benefit by pondering the profound teachings by Swedenborg and I look forward to reading more

In my opinion it is complete rubbish, and not to be recommended to anyone. There is nothing to say how he received this privileged information.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally Unscriptural! 21 May 2014
By Ian C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is totally unscriptural and does not even mention the Cross or the shed blood of Jesus. Jesus' supreme sacrifice for the whole of mankind is the best love story anyone will ever read, and it is true. This book is an utter waste of reading time as it is full of error. Emanuel Swedenborg should have read his bible properly and then he would have come to a much better understanding. It is evident that he has been deceived and he wanted to deceive others. Well, he didn't deceive me! He had used some bible references to back up his points but they were taken totally out of context. Don't buy this book!

An absolute 'must read' for anyone interested in 'life after death' literature! Originally written in the 1700's, it offers a very well researched piece of writing.
