    Glenn C. from AAHistoryLovers has just discovered a video on Swedenborg


which is the most useful thing he has ever come across for understanding the kind of Swedenborgian spiritual background which Lois Wilson and her family came from.
    It was a strange religious system by most of the standards of the time, but by getting into it, one can understand why Bill Wilson was not frightened off by spiritual thinkers like Emmet Fox, Aldous Huxley, Richard Maurice Bucke, and later on Raynor C. Johnson (author of The Imprisoned Splendour).
    Bill W.'s wife and in-laws held religious beliefs which were at least as unconventional, by ordinary American standards, as anything those people were teaching.
     -Glenn C., 06/03/2014 -Moderator of AAHistoryLovers
