The Golden Thread
Spiritual and Mental Health
Author : Geoffrey S. Childs
Format : Paperback, 207 pages
Release date : 1992

Who is not haunted by such questions as, "Who am I?" "Where do my feelings and thoughts come from?" "What is the purpose of life?" The Golden Thread supplies no simple answers or definitive pronouncement. Rather, it gently leads the reader through key questions, clarifying philosophical concepts in lay language. Mr. Childs draws together psychological discoveries and teachings from revelation that makes sense to the rational mind. These are based on the Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, which offer an internal spiritual sense to the stories of the Old and New Testament, explaining their relevance to every human life. Not only the curious philosopher will be struck by Mr. Childs' plain, yet profound answers to common questions about life; the spiritual and emotionally troubled will find great solace and comfort in this book. The reader will benefit from going back many times to passages in this book for ever deeper insights.
