Arcana Coelestia 3 by Emanuel Swedenborg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Things I learned from Swedenborg in this book:
Just as Lot's wife shouldn't have looked back to Sodom, we shouldn't "look back" to mere things but only to the endless love revealed in them. Otherwise, we become as rigid and prickly as salt.
Jesus saved the world not by appeasing an angry dictator-God but by using divine truth to fight back the falsities of evil.
Just like Jesus rose from the tomb, divine truth will reveal itself and supplant falsity at the end of the Christian era, which will happen fairly soon.
