This is a remarkable journey into the esoteric power of the Hebrew alphabet and ultimately the doors we can open up to greater transcendent imagination. Each of the book's sage essays provides enlightening perspectives, culminating with Fergus-Jean's first hand account of the ecstatic visions she beheld through her artistic engagements with the letters of the Kabbalah. These are all evidenced in the twenty-two paintings and prayer poems she created and the contributing essays by Christine Downing and Rabbi Mel Gottlieb on the mystical Kabbalah. A powerful vision to behold and read.

Illuminating Letters by Elizabeth Fergus-Jean, with essays by Chris Downing and Mel Gottleib traces the origin of Hebrew letters and tells a story about each.The art work by Elizabeth is stunning; I liked that all the letters appear on the back cover, and the essays on the faith out of which they emerged are first rate, accessible and historically situated. For any writer or artist, this book is an illustration of how image and word are not, finally, separate entities, but complements to understanding. I could not recommend it more highly.
