Excellent introduction to Kabbalah
It's rare to find an author who knows how to write for adolescents without talking down to them. In this fine work, Belmont ably demonstrates not only his deep and thorough understanding of Kabbalistic principles and teachings, but an empathy and respect for his audience that goes far beyond the levels attained by most authors writing for young adults. Belmont draws compelling connections between traditional Biblical and Kabbalistic tales and the contemporarily-set stories with which he peppers each chapter. The book's organization, with each chapter relating to a different sefirah of the Tree of Life, makes it easy to follow and understand without undermining its ability to communicate sophisticated philosophical and spiritual concepts. This book is highly recommended for anyone with a budding interest in the popular study of Kabbalah, teen or adult.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
