Editorial Reviews

Jewish Book World
Based upon the public lectures of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the author has written a basic guide to Jewish mystical thought as represented by the Chabad movement of Chasidut. Beginning with the "Transformation of Abraham," the author describes the unique character of the Jew, the relationship between Jew and God, and the hidden spiritual messages contained within the Jewish historical experience and cycle of personal life. As is true of his previous works, the author presents this most difficult topic in a contemporary fashion, making kabbalistic thought accessible to the common man.
