About The Book
Emanuel Swedenborg, author of a strange system of mystical theology, was of Swedish nationality and was born at Stockholm on January 29, 1688. He was educated at Upsala, and after travelling for several years in Western Europe was appointed to a post in the Swedish College of Mines. Thenceforth, until he was 55 years of age, Swedenborg pursued, with equal industry and ingenuity, the career of a man of science, doing valuable work in mathematics, astronomy, navigation, engineering, chemistry, and especially in mining and metallurgy. These inquiries were followed by studies in philosophy and anatomy and physiology. But about the year 1744 certain visions and other mystical experiences began to take hold of his mind, and three years later Swedenborg had come to regard himself as the medium of a new revelation of divine truth. His message, or theory, or vision, was first promulgated in the eight quarto volumes of the "Heavenly Arcana," published in London from 1749 to 1756, and this was followed by "Heaven and Hell," 1758, the work now before us, the full title of which is "Heaven and Its Wonders, the World of Spirits, and Hell: described by one who had heard and seen what he relates," and several other apocalyptic books, all of which were written in Latin. The main features of Swedenborg's theology were a strong emphasis on the divinity of Christ, the proclamation of the immediate advent of the "New Jerusalem," foretold by the seer of Patmos, and the conception of correspondences between the natural, spiritual, and mental worlds. His followers, known as Swedenborgians, or more properly as "The New Church signified by the New Jerusalem in the Revelation," are widely spread but not very numerous, in England and in the United States. Swedenborg died in London on March 29, 1772.

    Clothes in Heaven

    Swedenborg was a Swedish scientist who began to have almost daily contact with angels who gave him tours of heaven and hell. He wrote numerous volumes, this being a great one to start with. He describes what he saw in both heaven and hell and describes them often in great detail. He describes not only the clothes that angels wear, but also time, space, children.... I really enjoyed his descriptions of death and the different stages one progresses through. Another major concept described in detail in this book is correspondences. This is a great translation although I believe the Swedenborg Foundation is about to come out with a newer Dole translation.

    If you ever wondered what life after death was like, this book is perhaps the most complete description of it: we do survive after death with spiritual bodies, but in heaven and hell the ideas in our minds become our new reality. There is a correspondence in heaven and hell with the state of our mind, and how we have loved others.  The overriding principle of God is love, and in heaven we will be with those who are like us, who love us most.  There is no "time and space" in the spiritual world, instead distance is determined by how much you love others.  All communication is telepathic.  At the center of heaven is a spiritual Sun, which is the Lord - which has now been reported multiple times by those who have had a Near Death Experience.

    Unlike other editions, this digital work is well formatted, where footnotes, references and the index are hyperlinked for easy reading.  Although it is one of my favorite works by Swedenborg, there are other works where we dives into the spiritual meaning of the Bible, and discusses Christian theology at length based upon the experiences and knowledge Swedenborg obtained from his visionary experiences.  Overall, a very rational explanation of Christianity.  This work is part of the series "The Divine Revelation of the New Jerusalem", which contains all the works of Swedenborg hyperlinked together, and are also available as separate volumes.

    Heaven and Hell

    This is great, absolutely great. I'm just now beginning to read swedenborgs work (I heard about the man a few months ago). I've been reading it in PDF form, yet find myself compelled to buy the Swedenborg Foundations version, even at it's high price.

    good stuff

    I read this book in my sophomore religion class and found it very interesting. I found it comforting to read knowing that when i died that was not going to be the end. It is also nice to know that I will be going to such a nice place when I die- or at least what I consider to be nice- hopefully when I die I will find heaven nice.

    Heaven and Hope Within

    I read 'Heaven and Hell' by Emanuel Swedenborg first when I was a younge girl. At the time I was astounded and comforted by this work's informative and hopeful outlook on life and the life beyond. It helped me to have hope within, even in times of great doubt. I am so greatful for this most recent translation of 'Heaven and Hell' and am already seeing the beautiful effects of this book on my life and others as they explore its intriguing debths. I would be surpised if anyone did not enjoy this wonderful experience.
