Emanuel Swedenborg’s Heaven and HellwithJonathan Rose

Books Mentioned In This Interview

Jonathan Rose, PhD, is series editor for the New Century Edition of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological writings. He is author of The Message of Love in the Ten Commandments and Swedenborg’s Garden of Theology. He is also a contributor to A Lexicon to the Latin Text of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.

Here he points out that Swedenborg, an eighteenth century scientist, engaged in lengthy excursions into the afterlife throughout the last three decades of his life – as the result of a spiritual awakening. Dr. Rose describes Swedenborg’s visions of angels and demons and how they align with or conflict with the conventional Christian theology of his era. He explains the conflict we feel between the desires of our inner and outer nature.
