The Call

0 review


“A Study of the Means by which Swedenborg the Scientist and Philosopher became the Theologian and Revelator.”

Emanuel Swedenborg was well on his way to becoming one of the most famous scientists who ever lived. And yet, in his mid-fifties he gave up all worldly pursuits to answer a call from the Lord. His preparation for that call, the experience of receiving it, and his lifelong devotion to fulfilling it, is the subject of this magnificent work of impeccable scholarship. While Dr. Acton describes Swedenborg’s process in great detail, he presents it with a clarity that makes it easy to follow, and in a style that makes the reader want to read more. It details an extremely important period of Swedenborg’s life. This book should encourage current scholars to re-visit Swedenborg’s introduction to the spiritual world in order to discover deeper truths about his transition, and to help us see parallels between Swedenborg’s ‘call’ and the Lord’s call to each of us. This book now titled The Call first appeared in 1927 with the title An Introduction to the Word Explained. The author was Alfred Acton. This revised edition was done by Alfred Acton II.
