Conversations with Angels revealed the wisdom imparted to Swedish scientist-turned-seer Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) by heavenly spirits. This companion piece presents Swedenborg's encounters with evil spirits, narratives arranged thematically by Donald Rose and newly translated by Lisa Hyatt Cooper from several of Swedenborg's works. Swedenborg experiences hell as the provision of a merciful God who seeks restraint of evil spirits that would do harm rather than vengeance or punishment of those who did evil on earth. God, according to Swedenborg, allows people to choose a life of hell, but always "bends them toward a 'milder hell.'"
