This book is well written and easy to read, not things that often are to be found in a work that deals with the work of the 18th century philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg. The author draws on his wide experience as a cognitive behavioural therapist and draws links between the ideas and modern thinking on these topics, but always in a clear and sensible way. Self help books and more so spiritual ones are ten a penny, this one is in it's own class and ought to be a model for it's clarity and down to earth helpfulness.
I am not a believer myself but found this book to be the most sane I have read in all my wide readings and studies of Theology and Therapy. I wish that I and many who suffered from imposed 'Religious Guilt' had the benefit of this small book when growing up.
