Written at a time of intense theological debate on the nature of God's governance of the world, The Divine Providence deals with a world so troubled that the loving hand of God is often hidden from our sight and brought into question. This companion work to Divine Love and Wisdom shows how divine nature governs human life and creation and describes how individual human freedom is inherent in creation and empowered by a God-given ability to understand and decide. This original and thought provoking work suggests that only divine love and wisdom can provide us with the accountability that gives meaning to our lives.EMANUEL SWEDENBORG (1688-1772) was a Swedish scientist, inventor, philosopher, and mystic. At the age fifty-six, his main focus shifted from science and philosophy to theology, as a result of, first, dreams and later visions of a spiritual world where he conversed with angels and spirits, including Moses and Jesus, who guided his interpretation of the Scriptures. He spent the last decades of his life publishing eighteen theological titles that draw on the Bible and his own spiritual experiences.

Sobre el autor (2005)

The son of a Swedish Lutheran pastor, professor, and court chaplain, Emanuel Swedenborg first became a scientist and mining engineer. Of brilliant intellect and wide-ranging interests, he explored many areas of nature, doing pioneering work in several fields. In 1743 he began to experience a series of visions of the spiritual world. Over subsequent years he maintained that he held conversations with angels, the departed, and even God, and that he had visited heaven and hell. Swedenborg penned a lengthy series of writings inspired by these encounters, based on the concept of a spiritual cosmos as model for the physical, an educative view of the afterlife, and the allegorical interpretation of Scripture. In 1774 the small Church of the New Jerusalem was founded explicitly on the basis of his revelations. Swedenborg's influence has been much wider than its membership. His teachings entered American culture generally through the popularity of several of his books and his impact on Spiritualism and the New England Transcendentalists.
