A Short Contents Of This Book, By the Author (Jacob Boehme)
Being a high and deep searching out of the Threefold Life of Man, through the Three Principles.
Wherein is clearly shown that which is eternal; and also that which is mortal.
And why God, who is the highest Good, has brought all things to light. Also why one thing is contrary to another, and destroys it: and then what is right or true, and what is evil or false, and how the one distinguishes itself from the other. Wherein especially, the Three Principles are founded, which are the only original or fountain, whence all things flow and are generated.
Whereby the multitude of meanings and opinions about faith and religion may beknown: and what is the cause of the multitudes of opinions among men concerning the essence and will of God; also what is best for man to do, that he may attain the highest and eternal good.
And then concerning the end and issue of all things; why all things have appeared in such a property and essence as they have had; for the comfort of the poor, wounded, sick soul of man, and for the rebuilding or edification of the true Christian religion; wherein the Antichrist stands quite naked and revealed.
Set down for a remembrance to ourself, and for a stay to uphold us in these distracted, miserable times.
