This is a translation of: Apocalypsis Revelata, by Emanuel Swedenborg
Translated into English by N. Bruce Rogers
This is a detailed explanation of the inner meaning of the "Apocalypse," or the "Book of Revelation." Swedenborg goes through it, chapter by chapter and verse by verse. The visions described by John were spiritual events - not natural ones - but all the more important for that. The false ideas and evil loves that got embedded in the Christian church had to be expunged, so a true understanding of the Bible and a new set of ideas drawn from it could lead to a new Christian religion with truer faith and real charity.
