Although never published as a single volume in his lifetime, these four statements of belief form the core of the theology of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). The four doctrines are: a description of the nature of the Lord, by which Swedenborg means both Jesus and God; the inner spiritual meaning of holy scripture; the nature of evil and and importance of good works; and nature of faith.
This edition is a reprint, with revisions, of a 1904 translation by John Faulkener Potts.
The Redesigned Standard Edition is a thirty-volume collection of the only complete edition of Swedenborg’s theological writings currently available from the Swedenborg Foundation. Originally translated and published in the early 1900s, the RSE casebound set was redesigned and printed in a more readable format under the direction of William R. Woofenden.
