In the chronicling of creation, one detail strikes us with the force of mystery: Why was light created before everything else, when there was nothing to benefit from it? Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Read 29 May 2008
By Albus Paulson - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book. Assuming that one is familiar with some Hebrew words, and at least know the significance of the Torah, the Talmud, and Kabbalah, this book is mentally and religiously stimulating.
The Rebbe does not go into so much detail that one wonders how he got his answers, nor does he cover too much ground, so that one wonders where any connection is.
Personally, the style of this book works for me. If one likes Judaic studies, and likes the style of the Rebbe, then this is a good book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torah is revealed wisdom 16 Jun 2004
By Steven Maimes - Published on Amazon.com
Torah is revealed wisdom and as such it must be revealed or received. We can pass along knowledge but true wisdom must be received. There is a word in the Jewish tradition for the receiving of this revealed wisdom from Torah -- it is Kabbalah.
This one book by Rabbi Menachem Schneerson is full of Kabbalah and gems of Torah. Rabbi Schneerson was a master teacher. Teachings such as "faith begins where understanding ends" and "religious life is not a matter of suddenly arriving, but of constantly journeying" are explained from the Jewish wisdom tradition (Kabbalah).
The weekly Torah portion doesn't change. We change and can receive from Rabbi Schneerson's inspired teachings. This collection was assembled from teachings toward the end of the Rebbe's life and is filled with wisdom from experience.
If I have to name one book of mysticism that inspired me most - it would be this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Challenging Insights, of Blessed Memory 26 Jan 2014
By Wassim Muna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The day I got this book, I opened it up to a random page and the first sentence that my eyes focused on was "The Messiah = Moses + 1". I was absolutely stunned. Now that I've started reading the book from the beginning, I can't wait to get back to that page again.

As other reviewers have alluded to, the book doesn't explain everything comprehensively beyond any shadow of a doubt,
but it does give one a challenging insight into the rich world of Judaic exegesis. I found that if I persevered with the parts that I didn't immediately understand, I nevertheless eventually reached a piece of wisdom I could readily comprehend despite my beginner level of knowledge in matters of Jewish religion and it's literature. I especially appreciated the breakdown on page 24 under the heading The Preservation Of Perfection.

If you're reading this review, then this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars English version of the Yiddush discourses - unclear why it is out of print 21 May 2009
By R. Berman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great out-of-print book. Not clear why it is out-of-print. Previously I would only hear these discourses in shirum for Rabbi's reading and translating the Yiddush. Its great to have the whole thing in English so I can review, study, and share the Rebbe's wisdom with others.
