Emanuel Swedenborg (born Emanuel Swedberg) was a Swedish scientist, inventor and philosopher, mostly remembered for his work Heaven and Hell. At age 53, during his 'spiritual awakening', Swedenborg, having experienced various ambiguous dreams, believed to become God's messenger and wrote his first theological work The Heavenly Doctrine. Untill his death in 1722 he worked on eighteen then published and several more unpublished books on religious issues; those influenced a number of well-known writers such as Honore de Balzac, Ralph Waldo Emerson and William Butler Yeats.
Published in 1920, The Gist of Swedenborg is a unique collection of Emanuel Swedenborg's quotes on various major topics and an interesting introduction for those readers, who are not yet acquainted with the author's beliefs and ideas. Swedenborg once again comes up with some controversial ideas, though still relevant and fresh.
