“Here is an account of a scientific genius, dead two centuries, who having mastered all that science knew of the external world, went on to a daring, often frightening, exploration of the inner world. Van Dusen, having traveled some of the same distance himself, presents Swedenborg sympathetically in the man's own terms. An excitingly thoughtful book.” — Carl R. Rogers

Wilson Van Dusen, born in 1923, had an ecstatic experience of God while still in a crib, an experience he remembers even today. Other mystical experiences in his youth led him to begin a path to understand such experience and how he could return to it at will. After serving in the military during World War II, he became a Clinical Psychologist. In his later years he studied the mysticism of Emanuel Swedenborg. Van Dusen is also the author of The Natural Depth in Man, The Presence of Other Worlds, and The Country of Spirit.
