One of Swedenborg’s most-loved works is now available in audio format. In addition to discussing the nature of God, Divine Love and Wisdom examines the purpose of creation as well as the relationship between the physical and spiritual worlds. One of its unusual features is an extended exploration of the way the heart and lungs in the human body relate symbolically to the faculties of love and wisdom in the heart and mind. The most purely philosophical title of Swedenborg’s later theological works, Divine Love and Wisdom is also the one with the strongest affinities to modern secular discourse—that is to say, it develops theological concepts for the most part without reference to the Bible.
