A classic of Jewish mysticism by the world-renowned scholar in which he seeks to answer the major questions asked by the modern Jew about the nature of his/her existence in God's universe."Deliberately written without learned quotations or scholarship...this truly new work of theology provides answers with which contemporary men may renew their connection with the God of their fathers."

Review:

This little book is a book for the soul. It begins, quite deliberately (and perhaps to the dismay of some readers), with a view of another reality. It does not proceed from this world, or from the familiar ways of man in our society. Instead, it seeks to go from the genuine center of all being to the world and to human life. There is no attempt here to speak of Judaism, to prove its worth or to justify it; rather, to let the message communicate itself. And if a person permits his soul to listen, the soul will soon learn that all it needs to do is remember. Because in some dim and enigmatic way, it already knows all this.--Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz

Synopsis:

Based on the structures and assumptions of kabbalah, the largely esoteric theological system that deals with the relationships between man, Torah, the Commandments, and God, this work can be viewed as an introduction to the essence of Jewish existence and belief, and it does not attempt to justify Judaism according to external criteria.
