“God, the Universe and Man, their essential unity and fundamental attributes as seen through the eyes of Jewish esoteric tradtion, is the subject of Leo Schaya’s masterly study of the Kabbalah. For in the present volume he deals neither with the history of the Kabbalah nor with the Kabbalah as literature, but expounds its universal teachings which relate all things to their supreme archetypes, the ten Sefiroth or principal aspects of God.”

In addition to the Old Testament and the Talmud, M. Schaya discusses one of the classical sources of Jewish mysticism, the Zohar or Book of Splendour.

Reviews

“This book fills an urgent need…To rediscover the deepest meaning of the Old Testament is something that could have a most tonic and enlightening effect on the whole of Christian thought today; no clearer interpreters are to be found than the masters of the Kabbalah.”
