19th century overview 31 Mar. 2008
By James I. Huston - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a good overview of the the late 19th century thought concerning Kabbalism and it's importance. Some of the basic ants are discussed, but not in any detail. This book looks more at some of the aspects of practical Kabbalism rather than theoretical Kabbalism.

Worth the Price? 25 April 2014
By Marc Ruby™ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I admit to being something of a student of Jewish mysticism, which may have left me over-prepared for this thin volume, but I have to admit I was disappointed. Abelson has a tendency to depend on the kind of precise definition of terms like 'mysticism' that leave him defending the nature of Jewish mysticism against attacks which, by-and-large, don't exist in reality. And he often turns around and begs off defining Jewish terminology as 'out of scope.' The worst sin committed, however, is the continual harping on Neoplatonism (and its brothers and sisters) as the source of latter day Jewish mysticism. This left me in the cold, because there are extensive roots to Jewish mysticism that far precede Greek influences.

On the whole, the book left me a bit confused and dissatisfied.
