The Apocalypse Revealed by Emanuel Swedenborg
Publisher: 1887 J.B. Lippincott Company; Philadelphia The Rotch Edition
Complete in One Volume
"The Apocalypse Revealed is an exegesis of every verse in the book of Revelation, relating its key images to other passages in Scripture. It focuses on what Swedenborg saw as the fall of the Christianity of his time (the 18th century) and the predicted eventual rise of a new Christianity thereafter. Although argued in a rather terse style, its central reading is spiritual — unlike many if not most other views of the book of Revelation, which relate the text merely to world events, whether long past, present, or still to come.
It is the first of Swedenborg’s works to include at the end of every chapter lengthy narrative accounts (or “memorable occurrences") of the author’s spiritual experiences. These accounts often include his blunt declarations of the fate of various kinds of Christians (including lofty church officials) in the afterlife. Please see below for more information on Swedenborg."
This work by Swedenborg was reprinted many times by various different publishers. The Roch Edition, which this is, is considered to be the best of the multitude of editions.
