"True Christian Religion," Swedenborg's final major work, is a comprehensive theology intended to resolve dilemmas that had confused and divided Christians for centuries. Present here are Swedenborg's unique perspectives on the Trinity, the Bible, the faith/works controversy, human nature and spiritual growth, the sacraments, and the true nature of the church. (2 volumes)

True, not exactly. In this two volume set, Swedenborg takes us through a journey into the New (Jerusalem) church. Where things were previously hidden from us, they are now opened. In 1757 the "new" revelation came through Swedenborg. Makes for good science fiction, but...........

There is no doubt there are sound beliefs here, much of this exhaustive, extensive, overlapping, repetitive, confusing, and very complete work, is. Swedenborg refers to scripture and explains their meaning, plays devils advocate where appropriate, and where questions are raised they are answered. But where I find he excels is in his amazing scientific mind----conceptual for the time period. He was a man clear in the sciences; was ahead of his time in biology, physics and chemistry; and he uses this gift metaphorically. As a physician he refers to biology to use as a comparison to spirituality. His main treatise is on faith, charity, freedom of choice, and repentance. He breaks in with what he calls "memorable relations": conversations he has had with men struggling with the truth. The falsities are subtle throughout, so this work demands concentration and discernment. Swedenborgism is still alive and well today.

Here are some of Swedenborg's very unusual beliefs and my questions: 1) He tells us of his direct interaction between peoples of heaven and hell through his "memorable relations": Does he really believe there is an interaction----an intermediary between the two chasms or is he just using a fantasy to tell a story? 2) He sees and talks to angels: Is this just an analogy----a way of getting what he believes across? 4) Is Swedenborg the revelation of the new heaven and church described in the bible?......No. 5) He has special communication with angels and spirits........? 6) Believes in an intermediary realm (purgatory) between heaven and hell, as do the Catholics: There is nothing that tells us this. 7) Believes there are higher cultural levels in heaven......? 8) Believes in a sort of upper hell where one can be taught the truth and be reestablished into heaven.

Swedenborg is the latest chosen prophet, but revelation is over according to our bible. This "new church" teaches a much different trinity; were we then lost until he came? If I understand correctly, he believes he was God's elect or part of the second coming and that many of the prophesies have come to pass in the 18th century.

After reading other books on comparisons in beliefs covering Swedenborg I agreed with their conclusions, but only after many pages of hard reading of True Christian Religion. Swedenborg does a remarkable job of sweeping you in and hiding his cultic beliefs in a mass of superb writing. Although the individuals who made the comparisons agree that Swedenborg was brilliant, he was also able to distort the truth brilliantly. Some major concerns: 1) becoming a prophet after meeting Christ, 2) visions of heaven and hell, 3) man determines his own destiny, 4) God judges no one, 5) his "New Jerusalem" was to be the world's final religion, 6) conversations with angels, devils and the dead, 7) anti-Trinitarian, 8) not by faith alone, and 9) convoluted faith and charity beliefs. Being this church is a member of the National Council of Churches should be alarming.

Wish you well and blessings

Swedenborg is truly a genius. With this in mind, I figured a nice copy of "True Christian Religion" would be a good thing to have.
When I put the order through for this item, I discovered that the item is actually part 2 of a 2-volume set of the complete work, "True Christian Religion." I don't see this indicated anywhere in the product description.
If you do wish to purchase this item, and can find part 1 of this 2-volume set, by all means do it. The book looks nice and reads well, it's well bound and all... it's just disappointing to be sitting here with half of a great book.
