If you're tired of "you just have to believe it" or "you can't ask those question" while you ponder the questions of God and the Universe you'll find comfort in this book. While it deals with God and science, it feels neither religious or scientific, yet also is both. For someone who comes to it knowling nothing, the presentation communicated with beauty and ease of understanding. While you are given an amazing number of previously elusive answers, you are left inspired to know more. WHile I have delved into the books he suggested as well as others, this remains the most affecting core read. I immediately gave 4 copies away and look forward to discussing the subject with those friends when they are done with the book. Having spent the last 6 years in the Bible Belt it is especially refreshing.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Mind-Blowing book! 26 Nov 1997
By A Customer
Kaballah is infamous for being cryptic and hard to understand but David Sheinkin actually makes it all make sense. He is able to logically unify science and the torah so as they are actually consistent with each other. Wonderful!!! This is a wonderful introduction to Jewish Mysticism. Gotta read it, and you dont have to be religious to like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No better first book on Kabbalah 19 Aug 1998
By A Customer
It is beautifully written and holds astonishing information from non-religious standpoints as well. Excellent if you just wish to be informed on this area of mysticism/religion though you'll probably be drawn in to read much much more on the subject. Next book suggestion...Aryeh Kaplan Sepher Zefirot (Book of Creation)

5.0 out of 5 stars Kabbalah explained 16 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is one of the few books,that I have read on this subject,that gives some explanation and understanding on this subject to a non-Jewish,non Hebrew speaking person.
A difficult concept to get your head around,but this book,by no means the last word,is extremely helpful.
