Charity is not only about giving to those in need, but in a broader sense about loving your neighbor and doing good things for other people without thought of reward. So wrote Swedish visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772), who believed that charity, along with faiths, was part of the foundation of spiritual practice.
This work combines two of Swedenborg’s unpublished manuscripts to form a practical, inspirational handbook for applying the principle of doing good to daily life.
