In the preceding study of the spiritual meanings of the
Scriptures, the writer has drawn freely from the various theological
Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg. References to these works axe
inserted only occasionally, but students are referred to the invaluable
six-volume index, "The Swedenborg Concordance", compiled by the
late John Faulkner Potts. A special acknowledgment is made of our debt to
the works of the late Professor C. Th. Odhner, whose book, "Correspondences
of Canaan", now out of print, must be regarded as the classic
in its field. It gave the initial impulse to the present study.
