'Heaven and Hell' contains accounts and stories from Heaven, about The World Of Spirits and Man's State After Death, and Hell. Classic work in an affordable, high quality, modern edition, using the original text and artwork. In its deeper meaning and purpose it sets forth the true relations and the disordered relations between man and man, or the heavenly life and the infernal life as exhibited in human experience. Emanuel Swedenborg, born Emanuel Swedberg; 29 January 1688 – 29 March 1772) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher, theologian, revelator, and, in the eyes of some, Christian mystic. He termed himself a "Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ" in True Christian Religion, a work he published himself. He is best known for his book on the afterlife, Heaven and Hell (1758). Swedenborg had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. In 1741, at the age of 53, he entered into a spiritual phase in which he began to experience dreams and visions, beginning on Easter weekend of April 6, 1744. This culminated in a 'spiritual awakening', in which he received revelation that he was appointed by the Lord to write the The Heavenly Doctrine to reform Christianity. According to The Heavenly Doctrine the Lord had opened Swedenborg's spiritual eyes, so that from then on he could freely visit heaven and hell, and talk with angels, demons and other spirits; and that the Last Judgement had already occurred, in 1757. However, he tells us that at this day it is very dangerous to talk with spirits, unless a person is in true faith, and is led by the Lord.Swedenborg's work is unique, discerning a deeper meaning within Scripture. The Genesis stories are seen as symbols of spiritual reality rapturously beautiful when read in the Swedenborgian context. N° de réf. du libraire 41807
