What I like best about this book is that it describes the theology and anthropology of the Hekhalot literature in a way that flows naturally from the literature itself. The author avoids imposing external agendas on the material. Further, he distinguishes among different layers of material and allows each layer, as well as the ensemble, to speak for itself. His knowledge of the material is vast, his scholarship impeccable. David J. Halperin
The author has dealt in a clear and systematic way with the major themes pertaining to the corpus of early Jewish mysticism. His textual method opens up many new avenues of research and enables us to rid ourselves of some past biases in the study of Jewish mysticism. Elliot R. Wolfson"
