The Qabalah is essentially the search for God through a system of mathematically-related concepts. With an emphasis on how the Qabalah actively influences the Western Mystery Tradition, this work makes Qabalah understandable to help seekers in their quest for ultimate identity. It covers subjects including the value of "nothing", the purpose of the cross, the tree of life, and pathworking.

For those not familiar with these concepts, the Western Esoteric Qabalah is a method of providing a divine worldview, and doing so in such a way that meditation, ritual and searching are key components to the discipline. Exploring Hermetic, Orphic and Mystic paths to "understanding" the role of divinity in the world, Gray's book will provide a great deal of insight into this well established methodology of spiritual exploration.
He also is careful to note the allegorical elements of the work, and cautions the reader many times to not take certain elements of the work too literally, and that in many cases the mental state is far more important than the ritual or the "right" answer.
Each chapter ends with about 10 questions for the reader to review and answer for themselves. This question format allows the reader to synthesize the information in a way that brings forth the key chapter elements in a learning and mentoring style. All in all, if this is your cup of tea, pour yourself a cup of Gray.
