This is a clear and concise statement of Swedenborg's theology. It is an excellent introduction for those who wish to become quickly acquainted with his ideas.
"To the silent majority of seekers, I heartily recommend Emanuel Swedenborg's Introducing the New Jerusalem. In its uplifting portrait of the hereafter, it retains a modernity that is born of its author's scientific background, his belief in human potential and his avoidance of dense metaphor. Yet, at the same time, it encapsulates ages-old dreams and hopes of the after-life with a power that makes them lift off the pages ."
