This is a thoughtful and detailed account of the theosophical Kabbalah written by an author who is not only very well versed in Jewish mysisticism but who holds doctorates in both philosophy and psychology. An introductory chapter focuses on the author's overall approach to the Kabbalah and subsequent chapters are each devoted to a specific Kabbalistic symbol/idea, e.g. Ein-sof (the Infinite God), Sefirot (divine archetypes), Tikkun ha-Olam (the Restoration of the World). The result is a comprehensive and systematic Kabbalistic theology, which not only explains the Kabbalistic symbols but provides the reader with an overaching view of God, the World, Man, and the meaning of human existence, from a Kabbalistic point of view. Although no previous knowledge of the Kabbalah is required this is a serious, philosophically minded work rather than a pop or New Age book on Jewish mysticism.Was this review helpful?
