A Swedenborg Sampler – Emanuel Swedenborg

I discovered the eighteenth-century spiritual world explorer Emanuel Swedenborg from reading a booklet Insights into the Afterlife by Nora Spurgin. Online, I found the Swedenborg Foundation, who are a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to help people learn about Emanuel Swedenborg.

From the Swedenborg Foundation websites Where to Start page I decided to read the book A Swedenborg Sampler. (You can download a free PDF or EPUB of the book or purchase a paperback copy from the website).
