In the year 2000 the Swedenborg Foundation undertook the largest publishing project of its 150-year history: The New Century Edition of the Works of Emanuel Swedenborg (NCE), a completely new, contemporary translation with scholarly introductions and annotations. The first phase of the project covers the theological works that Swedenborg himself saw through publication and is projected to comprise 27 volumes. The project is spearheaded by series editor Dr. Jonathan Rose and managing editor Dr. Stuart Shotwell.

- NCE Deluxe Edition
in hardback and deluxe paperback
High-quality volumes in a large (7-inch by 10-inch) trim size. Design features include a classic typeface in two colors and Swedenborg's original ornaments. Each work contains a substantial introduction, showing the work's relationship to its eighteenth-century theological, philosophical, and cultural setting; a translator's preface, which focuses on Swedenborg and gives the history of the text, of its translations, and of the scholarship concerning it; annotations to the text that explain concepts, allusions, oblique references, obscure expressions or terms, and identify historical details—people, places, and events—that may be unfamiliar to readers.
- NCE Portable Edition
A complete paperback series of Swedenborg's published theological works, designed as a set. Smaller than the NCE Deluxe Edition, this convenient set is a translation-only, paperback edition.
- NCE eBooks
The NCE translations as eBooks that can be read on computer screens, Kindle Readers, Sony Readers, and iPhones.
