Kabbalah: An Introduction to Jewish Mysticism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Byron Sherwin's book is a primer for course-work and for those seeking to understand Jewish mysticism on its own terms, Kabbalah provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to Jewish mysticism, organized around five models of Jewish mystical theology and experience: Normal Mysticism, Mystical Intimacy, Addressing God's Needs, Drawing Down Divine Grace, and Prophetic Kabbalah. Sherwin's Kabbalah: An Introduction to Jewish Mysticism is a scholarly, yet accessible work that includes primary texts in translation.

Book News Annotation:

Sherwin (Jewish philosophy and mysticism, Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, Chicago) explains the nature of the Jewish mystical tradition, the language of the Kabbalah, the goals of the Jewish mystical enterprise, and the techniques that were developed and practiced to attain various types of Jewish mystical experiences.
