Summary
A theological evaluation of Pascal's Wager, using the works of Emanuel Swedenborg. "The central question of this paper is this: what aspects of the Wager are theologically sound, according to the theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg, and what aspects are not theologicaly sound? Specifically, can the Wager work in a New Church framework? Does it provide a sufficient path to faith?" -- from leaf 2
