New Church Life

New Church Life is a monthly magazine devoted to the teachings revealed through Emanuel Swedenborg. It is the official journal of the General Church of the New Jerusalem and has been published continuously since 1881.

The magazine typically includes:

  • Sermons
  • Doctrinal articles
  • Editorials
  • Book Reviews

Because it has been published for over 100 years, New Church Life is valued by many readers as a resource for study of the doctrinal thought of the church and as a repository of information on the history of the church organization.
