5.0 out of 5 stars A must have (Ecletic wiccans too !) 5 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have been practicing the craft for (sigh!) loooong time. Godwin's book gave my spells the necessary spark to get them fly ! I would seriously suggest you get it; not easy for beginners but a sure source of information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book, poor Hebrew proofreading. 27 Mar 2004
By Uri Raz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is an excellent *hermetic* cabala encyclopedia - it is thorough, bringing together most of the information one would see in it, e.g. various attributions a-la Crowley's Liber 777 covering subjects such as the 72 fold name of god, the 42 letters name of god, seals, spirits, tarot, etc.
The book contains three major sections - the first is the encyclopedia itself in English alphabetical order, the second a Hebrew-English dictionary, and the third a gematric index which brings various Hebrew words by their gematric value.
There is a good bibliography, a reproduction of Crowley's Sepher Sephiroth, and a couple of interesting appendixes.
The major problem I see with this book is enormous number of errors in Hebrew - it looks like neither the author not any of Llewellyn's staff working on the book know any Hebrew. This includes not only spelling errors (which lead to errors in the gematria calculations, which means one should double check *all* Hebrew spelling and gematria calculations in this book with a good English-Hebrew dictionary), but also errors in basic material, e.g. none of the spellings of the 42 letters name of God brought in the book is correct.
So, indeed, one can benefit a lot from learning the correspondences and their logic, but still needs to cast doubts about what's written in the book and research for her/himself.
A secondary problem is with images - those are valueable, but many of them look pixelized, as if they were scanned at low resolution and enlarged.
And to repeat my emphasis from the first paragraph - this is a book about *hermetic* cabala, and *not* Jewish cabala. Jewish Cabala uses a different version of the tree of life (described in appendix C of this book), different attributions, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Response to the Distraught Reviewer 27 Aug 2006
By Auther Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In response to the distraught reviewer, whose review starts, "If you're into ingnoring most of the jewish character..." I have to offer a disclaimer here for any would be potential buyers. True, if you're looking for a book that expounds the principles of the kabbalah while maintaining as much of the jewish historicity as possible, this book isn't the one. But I must say that this book neither claims to fulfill the latter criteria nor is it meant to. This book is meant as a reference tool for those studying the qabalah (spelling you'll usually see when this is the case) in it's capacity as the cornerstone of the western mystery tradition(golden dawn, stella matutina, A.A. etc). The fact that crowley's 777 is included should've made this quite apparent. A word of advice to everyone, but especially the afore mentioned reviewer, you might want to do a little research on any item you plan to purchase and decide to publicly denounce, as you'll kind of have a tendency to make yourself look silly, maybe even of less than average intelligence when you happen to be totally off base. So for those who would persue the "mysteries" you should definitely add this selection to your library as it is a great asset. For those wishing to study the historical and traditional jewish kabbalah your aims would be much better served through books by Aryeh Kaplan and others like them, as your main corpus of study will be the Sefer Yetzirah, the Zohar and the Bahir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awsome sourcebook! NOT for the beginner, though! 7 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a true Qabalistic encyclopedia, just as the title says. Mr. Godwin has done a beautiful job on this one and deserves praise for it! I recommend any interested folks first read Regardie's "A Garden of Pomegranates" before you get into this hefty volume!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Learning Tool 4 Nov 2012
By Crabby Apple - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book so very much! I have learned so much that I never even realized I was missing out on through the study and daily reading of this tome. It is always handy, so I can look up words/letters/numbers on the fly. I also enjoy looking up Angels, Goetic Demons, Qlippoth, Tunnels of Set and much more. It has added a great deal to my understanding of correspondences and Tarot. Plus it contains Sepher Sephirot from 777, to give further meaning to the numbers. All around a great book. Kudos to the author!
I do have one quibble, the binding of the book is not the best quality and I predict I will have to replace this book in time. I would think it is the sheer size of the volume that contributes to this and I will gladly replace it if the time comes. It is a minor issue because the content is so worthwhile. Otherwise I like the paper and the layout and fonts are very well done. I will always have a copy, that is for sure. Highly recommended!
