Arthur Green is one of my favorite leaders in Kabalah. His books are based on traditional mysticism, not a New Age Quick Fix Self-Help type of Judaism. I found this book appealing because each chapter is very short, dealing with one, simple idea that is not dependent on previous chapters. It's a great book to read at bedtime; a brief essay, written clearly that opens your mind to many "ah-ha" moments. Great choice for all levels interested in Kabalah.

Rabbi Green, in quite a skillful way, directs the reader to an aspect of Judaism not adequately addressed by other authors. He "introduces" a monistic overview which makes one feel one with all. It is easy reading and very useful to one's path. I have been fortunate to hear him in person and highly recommend his works and especially this book. Rabbi Green does his part in bringing spirituality back to Judaism.

I read this book when I was suspected of having cancer, and consequently not in my happiest state. But this book completely changed the way I saw myself and the world.

Anyone going through a bad patch should read this wonderful book.

As a liberal Jew I have searched for an articulation of Jewish theology that I can recommend to people. This work by Rabbi Green is one of the best such articulations of progressive Jewish theology that I have come across and is easily accessible to lay people. I highly recommend it!

I found this work moving and interesting.It is constructed as a set of brief essays each of which explores a religious theme.
Green defines himself as a searcher and rather than presenting hard doctrine seems to want to suggest his conception of Jewish thought, including his Halachic ideas. He starts by reading a story- parable of Rabbi Nachman and the flavor of the paradoxical and mystical, the longing questing soul is immediately stamped upon the work. I liked very much his way of talking honestly about modern scientific developments and his effort to read the process of overall development in terms of God's Immanence. I found his way of talking about the Shema as a call to the people of Israel to hear , and his subsequent exposition of the meaning of this, illuminating. I cannot say I understood fully Green's thought but at many points I found it insightful and inspiring. His love of the Jewish people and the Jewish religious tradition pervade the work, as does his clear love of humanity.
This is a work which I will go back to and reread , looking to focus more closely on those ideas which I hopefully will make a part of my own way of seeing and being in the world.
