Toward the Light

Toward the Light (in Danish Vandrer mod Lyset) is an ethical, philosophical and religious work, first published in Denmark in 1920.

According to the publisher of Toward the Light, Michael Agerskov, the work came into being by means of inspiration and intuition through the human intermediary Johanne Elisabeth Agerskov[?] (born Malling-Hansen), a Danish woman. It contains the following sections:

  • Ardor's Account
  • The Speech of Christ
  • The speech of God's Servant
  • Parables
  • Commentary
  • Summary
  • Postscript

A supplementary book, The Doctrine of Atonement was also printed in 1920. It contains:

  • The Doctrine of Atonement, said to be a message from the personality who was once incarnated as Saul from Tarsus (Paul)
  • A message said to be from Christ, regarding the misconception that he should be one with God.
  • A message said to be from the personality who was once incarnated as Ignatius Loyola, in which he describes the shorter road to the kingdom of God.

Supplementary to Toward the Light, the book Questions and Answers was published in 1929 and 1930, containing 2 sections with questions posed by human beings, and answers to these supposedly from the supernatural world, always through the intermediary Johanne Elisabeth Agerskov. It contains 144 questions with answers, plus a supplement regarding marriage, birth control and abortion.

Prior to Toward the Light, a book called Greetings to Denmark was published (1915). It contains poems which are said to be from a number of well known danish poets, who lived in Denmark in the late 18th century and in the 19th century. Among those one from Hans Christian Andersen. All these poems came into being through the intermediary Johanne Elisabeth Agerskov.
