15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Dr. E. M. Cohen on 25 Oct. 2005
Format: Paperback
I've read many introductory books on Kabbalah but this is by far the most comprehensive. It is one of the few books that emphasises the central role of the Hebrew letters and language (the 'Loshon Kodesh' or Holy Speech) which are thought to have been the tools of creation itself.

There are clear explanations of difficult subject matters such as the Tree of Life, the Sefirot (Divine attributes) and some fascinating material on the famous Golem of Prague (who legend has it was animated and brought to life using the Divine names). Clearly Professor Lancaster is writing not simply from a scholarly perspective but also has first hand experience of some of the meditative techniques described.

A remarkable achievement, which deserves to be a spiritual bestseller.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a fine book, not easy to read but it really does get to the 'essence of Kabbalah'. If you can read between the lines, Brian Lancaster is offering something unusual: a book which actually enacts what Kabbalah is: a method of returning to and knowing the source of our being. He is Jewish and has no truck with the kind of Kabbalah which Madonna has publicised. There are some very interesting exercises in this book, though I wonder if Mr Lancaster has left out some of the details, because, if you did these exercises properly, they might actually work. The chapters on creation and the mysticism of language are particularly fine.

Although the book is very comprehensive, the style doesn't make it enjoyable reading. It feels like a geeky scientific manual rather than a spiritual book.
