Description

As a young schoolteacher, Douglas Taylor turned to the teachings of Swedish visionary Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772) because Swedenborg’s language of symbol made perfect sense to him as a way to understand the Bible. Taylor’s book is an easily understood overview of Swedenborgian thought—a theology that “makes sense.” Developing a clear idea of God, Taylor says, “is of supreme importance and has consequences to eternity.”

This book explores the concepts of the Creator as Redeemer, the spiritual world, redemption, and the Trinity. Taylor looks at personal morality in Swedenborgian terms, addressing such concerns as the nature of evil, how to escape from evil feelings, and why we must take responsibility for our actions.
