Open Doors presents a diversity of essays written both in English and Swedish by The Lord’s New Church’s pastor of sixty years Olle Hjern. The volume in hand includes a variation of Emanuel Swedenborg related themes: from the light gained by the near death experience in this eighteenth century philosopher and extraordinary scientist to essays showing Swedenborg’s influence on the Swedish culture, e.g., painter Ivan Aguéli and well known writers C J Love Almqvist and Vilhelm Ekelund. One leading theme is the establishing of the New Church in Sweden in the summer of 1786 at the place called ‘Heavenly Well’ (Varnhem Sweden). This movement was later called the Skara Swedenborgianism. Among the essays you’ll find the author’s autobiography that sheds light on his life before his ordination as a priest in The Lord’s New Church, which was called by Swedenborg himself - Nova Hierosolyma.
