Excerpt from Scripture Symbolism: An Introduction to the Science of Correspondences, or Natural and Spiritual Counterparts

All Christian Churches have the literal Bible; but they differ as to its meaning, and especially as to its figurative sense. The purpose of this book is to help the sincere inquirer to open the seals of the literal Bible, and to recognize its inward spirit; and thus to present a new language to those needy ones who have ears to hear "what the Spirit saith unto the churches."

The system of doctrine herein explained is that made known to the world through Emanuel Swedenborg. There is a "Dictionary of Correspondences, etc," compiled from the theological writings of Swedenborg; but it is adapted to the use of advanced students. And the undersigned and others have felt the need of a practical elementary work, as an introduction to the great Science of Correspondences; a hand-book, with which the student may acquire a rational and systematic idea of the philosophy, and of the leading facts, of correspondences, representatives and signs, which knowledge he may use in gaining a better understanding of the Divine Word.

It is not meant that this book will be sufficient to open, to any student, all the spiritual meaning of all parts of the Sacred Scriptures. Such an understanding can come to him, only, whose mind is prepared for such insight, not only by a knowledge of the Science of Correspondences, but also by an interior mental state in which a perception of spiritual truth can be enjoyed.
