This book is a combination of five volumes, originally published as: The Doctrine of the Lord, The Doctrine of Sacred Scripture, The Doctrine of Life, The Doctrine of Faith, and New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrines. Herein are revealed the central tenets and doctrines of the New Church, or New Jerusalem, which will succeed the older Christian churches, which was revealed to the author in heavenly visions. The Doctrine of the Lord reveals that God is one person in Jesus Christ, that He is Jehovah in human form. The mystery of the Trinity is explained in a manner that is easy to understand. The Doctrine of Sacred Scripture shows how the Bible is Divinely Inspired, and how when read with enlightenment, it provides a conjunction between the mind and the angels of heaven. The Doctrine of Life is the doctrine of charity: religion is life, and that life is doing good. The essential responsibility for each person is that he/she must make an effort to review his/her life, and turn away from evil. The Doctrine of Faith reveals that faith is not mere belief: faith is living according to the truth, and can not be made separate from charity. New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrines sums up the doctrines of the New Church, and contains numerous references to the author's magnum opus, Heavenly Arcana. This book is for those seeking a rational religion which simplifies the mysteries of faith, explained in a simple manner with support drawn from scripture.

This work has been formatted for digital publication: it includes hyperlinked table of contents, references, footnotes, and topical indexes. This is volume 23 of the multi-volume work, The Divine Revelation of the New Jerusalem, which contains all the major theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg.
