Aryeh Kaplan's introduction to Jewish Kabbalah and Prophecy is the most beautiful and spiritual presentation of the subject I have ever read. He also has an amazing ability to present very complex topics in a comprehensible way. Furthermore, the work is very scholarly, with all statements cited and referenced, with occasional further explanation in the Notes.

Better get off your Crowley, DuQuette, Rankine or what have you for later and start out with Kaplan's "Inner Space" if you want to have a relly good, thoughtfull and in depth introduction to Kabbalah.

Mandatory reading, especially for tho ...more

Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan is one of the two authors who inspire me to be a better Jew, every time I read their material. This book is an enjoyable introduction to kabbalah. Rabbi Kaplan makes esoteric ideas understandable. Very worthwhile read.
