TThis authentic translation into English of two Kabbalah texts written in Hebrew asks deeply personal questions about the essence of an individual and the existence of a soul. Discussing the experience of an individual and the role of humans in creation, it offers an understanding of the places of evil, suffering, compassion, and joy in the full experience of divine love. The Kabbalah is presented here not as an esoteric study limited to the divinely inspired, but as a universal pathway of the spirit. Coming from the West rather than the East, this book fills a long-awaited gap as it teaches an essential spirituality within the conceptual framework of the Judeo-Christian tradition....

    I should say upfront that I'm one of the translators of this work! So of course I'm biased. It's a work which goes into depth of who we really are. Its a book, not of philosophy, (although you might read it like that) but a book to take personally. To discuss with, argue with, confront, learn from , fight with and to love. There are many layers in this book, and I wouldn't call it an easy read. But IT"S WORTH IT!

    An excellent commentary on Kabbalah and the Torah that can benefit any student. Though this is the best text Iveto read on the subject it is dense in theory. Not to scare away any potential readers, every thought is thoroughly explained. I would often read something, not understand what I read, then continue to read and find those ideas were layered with explanation and woven into beautiful prose.The theme of selflessness is transcendent and applies to any spiritual or secular creed. But how can you refuse God after you have labored and found revelation. ^ This being one of the subjects I thought to be the most rewarding. If someone says they have labored and not found don't believe them, or if someone says they didn't labor and found don't believe them. You must labor if you wish to find. "For those who seek Me will find Me." Mark and Yedidah Cohen have made a great contribution to the english world by introducing this text. My thanks and appreciation is duly extended.
