Good Understandable Translation. This would be the best book to start with regarding The Kabbalah. This was easier to follow than others out on Kindle.

as the Zohar by Mr. Matt isn't available digitally this is the best work in digital for now..

we NEED the Zohar in digital..
why settle for scraps when the main course is there it just needs prepared..

please have some mercy on our backs.

The Kabbalah is a very interesting work. It has been something that I have read bits and pieces of. But as I read in my 70's I really like it. It gives us a different way to think about God. The Christian faith talks about three persons of a trinity. But the Kabbalah has many faces or qualities of God. God is One in the Jewish faith, the Christian faith and the faith of Islam. And in the Bible and Tanek, we are created in God's image, Male & Female, God made us. In the Kabbalah The Creator has a partner the Shekhinah or feminine half of God. "The union of Shekhinah and the Tif'eret constitutes the focus of religious life." In the wisdom literature of the Bible, we see the feminine side of God in the Spirit.

I think that anyone truly interested in the sacred Being. Will find a wealth of thought provoking material.

The book should or could read and re read several times and in different order. Must be studied in depth.
