Help Us Make a Difference

By Swedenborg Project | January 1, 2014

The new year is upon us. 2014 promises to be our best year yet. 2013 saw us continue to grow and develop. We are now a community of 409 people who read and believe what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote.  And, there are 687 people who receive our regular email updates, 612 Facebook friends who have connected with us, 312 people who like our page on Facebook, and 117 people who follow us on Twitter.

New Church Now has continued to offer a private and positive online space for sharing faith, life, and relationships with people all over the world who are excited by and supportive of all things Swedenborg.

We need your support.

To date, only a small handful of people have provided the financial backing that makes The Swedenborg Project, Inc and New Church Now possible. And while we are extremely grateful for their consistent and long term support of our mission, we are reaching the end of what we are able to accomplish with the funding that we have received.  And so, we are asking that if you have benefitted from our three core projects:

New Church Now

The Swedenborg Digital Library

The Swedenborg Project Online

that you consider joining the Swedenborg Project, Inc. in our mission to support those who read and believe what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote.

If you’ve already donated your time or resources, thank you, we appreciate your generosity in keeping our programs running.

If you’ve been meaning to make a contribution, you still have time.

Let’s see if we can hit our goal of raising $10,000 to replenish our general operating fund.

Your contribution makes a difference. We need your support. Please consider making a $25 donation to help us cover our operating costs, keep the web servers running, and the programs up and available.

Even if you can’t afford to make a financial contribution this year, please consider inviting your friends to join New Church Now. Spreading the word is core to our mission of providing a growing community of people who read and believe what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote.

Your invitations are priceless.

Rotch Edition of Swedenborg’s inspired works now online

By Swedenborg Project | March 22, 2013

The Rotch Edition is unique since it was produced under the auspices of a major publisher, the Riverside Press of Houghton Mifflin. This presumably produced an editorially polished piece of work. It is thus of interest to compare the Rotch with completely in-house editions.

Kirven’s “A Concise Overview of Swedenborg’s Theology” is now online

By Swedenborg Project | February 10, 2013

A scholarly but highly readable study guide, with discussion questions and organized readings.

From the Introduction:

“ This course is an “overview”that it involves a somewhat cursory view of the theology found in the whole body of Swedenborg’s theological writings, and also in the sense that this content will be seen as much as possible as a whole—with some attention to the structure of the theological system that is found in those volumes. It is something like a map-maker’s photograph of the earth from a high-flying plane or a satellite: it should provide a perception of enough detail that every part of the system can be recognized for what it is, but at the same time all the parts can be seen together, emphasizing their relationships to one another.”

Every person who joins New Church Now is asked to confirm that they are affirmative towards what Emanuel Swedenborg wrote (a simple “Yes” to a Yes/No question, nothing too deep) in order to provide a friendly community environment that people will be excited to be a part of.

Kingslake’s “Inner Light” is now online

By Swedenborg Project | May 30, 2012

Brian Kingslake’s superb introduction to the teachings of the Second Coming, Inner Light; Swedenborg Explores the Spiritual Dimension, is now online on the Swedenborg Digital Library.  The text is lively and covers a lot of territory in a remarkably short space. One of the few introductory works that I’m aware of that you can hand to almost anybody.
