“Inside Off The Left Eye” is an original podcast offering by the Off The Left Eye team with new material every week coming to you on Sundays, hosted by Chelsea Odhner. We study the historical context of Emanuel Swedenborg’s (1688-1772) life and works and share fresh insights from the New Century Edition translation of Swedenborg’s theological works. Joined by translator and Series Editor Dr. Jonathan Rose and Off The Left Eye host and personality Curtis Childs, we follow threads into the past, discovering that what we find often is eminently relevant to the present.
