When he entered the visionary phase of his life, Swedish theologian Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) set out on a journey to document all that he had seen, heard, and learned while in contact with the spirits of heaven and hell. Before his death, he wrote eighteen different works published in twenty-five volumes, totaling about three and a half million words.

Navigating that rich garden of thought has been a challenge even for scholars of Swedenborg, let alone those new to his work. In this compact guide, Jonathan S. Rose introduces readers to the basic concepts of Swedenborgs thought, including Swedenborgs view of God and the afterlife and his description of humanitys spiritual history. Rose also examines how Swedenborgs theology relates to other Christian denominations, both in his time and ours, and takes a side trip into some of Swedenborgs more unusual ideas.

Swedenborgs Garden of Theology provides an ideal introduction for anyone seeking a starting point to delve into Swedenborgs religious thought.
