Blackwell North Amer
For hundreds of years, the Jewish mystical tradition of Kabbalah has not been available for general readership. Now, Daniel Matt - an internationally respected authority on Jewish mysticism - has gathered together the most important, delightful, and profound passages from all the literature of Kabbalah in this extraordinary presentation, elegantly rendered with poetic nuances, exotic imagery, and bold innovation.
Beautifully introduced with lucid analysis and vital historical information, The Essential Kabbalah offers insightful accounts of the primary aspects of Jewish mysticism, including Ein Sof (the radical transcendence of God), the Sefirot (the ten divine attributes), and the Shekhinah (the feminine aspect of God). Selections of text are rendered with clarity and an eye for the magical. The Essential Kabbalah is a crucial and momentous contribution to the normally esoteric world of Jewish mysticism.
