According to Wikipedia: "Emanuel Swedenborg (February 8, 1688[1]–March 29, 1772) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher, Christian mystic, and theologian. Swedenborg had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. At the age of fifty-six he entered into a spiritual phase in which he experienced dreams and visions. This culminated in a spiritual awakening, where he claimed he was appointed by the Lord to write a heavenly doctrine to reform Christianity. He claimed that the Lord had opened his eyes, so that from then on he could freely visit heaven and hell, and talk with angels, demons, and other spirits. For the remaining 28 years of his life, he wrote and published 18 theological works, of which the best known was Heaven and Hell (1758), and several unpublished theological works. Swedenborg explicitly rejected the common explanation of the Trinity as a Trinity of Persons, which he said was not taught in the early Christian Church. Instead he explained in his theological writings how the Divine Trinity exists in One Person, in One God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Swedenborg also rejected the doctrine of salvation through faith alone, since he considered both faith and charity necessary for salvation, not one without the other. The purpose of faith, according to Swedenborg, is to lead a person to a life according to the truths of faith, which is charity."

1839. Swedenborg, a noted Swedish scientist, philosopher and theologian, is best known for his later writings, in which he presents ideas both Christian and ecumenical, for a new spiritual era or new church to be known as the New Jerusalem. In Heaven and Its Wonders Swedenborg deals with Heaven and related topics as varied as angels, man, the sun, light, heat, the four quarters in heaven, time in heaven, appearances in heaven, garments worn by angels, mansions of the angels, space in heaven, governments in heaven, divine worship, speech of angels, Gentiles or people not included in the church in heaven, infants in heaven, rich and poor in heaven, marriages in heaven, and heavenly joy and happiness. He also examines the world of spirits and the state of man after death; man after death; leaving behind the terrestrial body; the first, second, and third states of man after death; and the difficulty of leading the life that leads to heaven. Finally, he tackles Hell with a discussion of who is in hell, what is meant by hellfire, gnashing of teeth, wickedness and diabolical arts of infernal spirits, the appearance and plurality of the hells, and the equilibrium between heaven and hell.

Heaven in the American Imagination

Does heaven exist? If so, what is it like? And how does one get in? Throughout history, painters, poets, philosophers, pastors, and many ordinary people have pondered these questions. Perhaps no other topic captures the popular imagination quite like heaven. Gary Scott Smith examines how Americans from the Puritans to the present have imagined heaven. He argues that whether Americans have perceived heaven as reality or fantasy, as God's home or a human invention, as a source of inspiration and comfort or an opiate that distracts from earthly life, or as a place of worship or a perpetual playground has varied largely according to the spirit of the age. In the colonial era, conceptions of heaven focused primarily on the glory of God. For the Victorians, heaven was a warm, comfortable home where people would live forever with their family and friends. Today, heaven is often less distinctively Christian and more of a celestial entertainment center or a paradise where everyone can reach his full potential. Drawing on an astounding array of sources, including works of art, music, sociology, psychology, folklore, liturgy, sermons, poetry, fiction, jokes, and devotional books, Smith paints a sweeping, provocative portrait of what Americans-from Jonathan Edwards to Mitch Albom-have thought about heaven.
