Book Description

True Christianity presents a satisfying and sensible alternative to mainstream Christianity. The last book published by Swedish scientist-turned-seer Emanuel Swedenborg, it serves as both the keystone in the architecture of his theology and the summary of his far-reaching psychological insights. This volume, the first of two, provides unique answers to humankind’s perennial questions about the nature of God and about Jesus—not only what his purpose was and how he fulfilled it, but why his life and death are still relevant to us now.

The New Century Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg is a modern-language, scholarly translation of Swedenborg’s theological works. The series’ easy-to-read style retains the dignity, variety, clarity, and gender-inclusive language of Swedenborg’s original Latin, bringing his thought to life.

This portable edition contains the full text of the New Century Edition translation, but not the introduction, annotations, or other supplemental materials found in the deluxe edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reading for the spiritual seeker 2 Feb. 2013
By Steven Alex - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was introduced to the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg in the early 70's. At the time I was new to college and was taking a class in "World Religion" and learned about Swedenborg during class. His writing was never presented to me as a stand alone religion but that his writings would help me to be a better Christian, Lutheran, or provide deeper perspective into any faith. The more I learned about his writing the more I was deeply touched by what he had to say.
In the 70's Swedenborg's most essential writings were in very hard to read translations based on the original Latin writing styles of the 1800's. As a result it was very difficult to read and understand. Now we have new translations written for this century in the "Portable New Century Editions". These are excellent works written by extremely skill translators and even though the concepts have tremendous depth they are easy to understand.
If you are interested in learning what the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg have to say about the bible, and gaining a deeper understanding I can recommend these translations with no reservation. In particular, I recommend the 'New Century Editions" of; "Heaven and Hell", "Divine Love and Wisdom", "Divine Providence", translated by George Dole. I also recommend "The True Christianity Vol. 1 and 2, translated by Jonathan Rose and "Secrets of Heaven Vol. 1 and 2, translated by Lisa Hyatt Cooper.
I'm sure someone will ask me; "Well Steven, if you had to recommend only one of these books, which would it be?" Well they are all good but "Divine Love and Wisdom" is a great place to start.
Highly recommended reading for the spiritual seeker.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lord's truth. 21 Dec. 2012
By bburke - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jesus said in the Gospels that he gave the apostles all they could be taught under the condition of their time, He said "I have many things to tell you but you can not receive them now" and "I will come the spirit of Truth". So we see the NT does not have all that the Lord Jesus Christ wanted to teach. These books teach that Divine Truth promised. These books were written in Latin. The present translation makes them easier to understand. Bill Burke -- if you would like to discuss the ideas in them, positive or negetive

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal 18 July 2013
By Jay C. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This and volume two lay out the real essence of Christianity, minus the three person trinity nonsense. God is a trinity, but only in the sense we are. I recommend this and volume two for anyone wanting to go beyond the status quo view of God and His Church.
