Goldwag: The Beliefnet Guide to Kabbalah
This (from The Salt Lake Tribune) was the first of the few reviews I bumped into about Arthur Goldwag’s The Beliefnet Guide to Kabbalah. It quotes Rabbi Lawrence Kushner’s introductsion
“this includes ghosts, dybbuks, golems, weird dreams, bizarre coincidences, Bible codes, and secret cantations, as well as mostly everything in the general category of ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ ” – as mystical.
The book’s official website at Beliefnet includes a quiz a short excerpt from the book. I browsed through the book at a bookstore and liked its clear layout and organization. The few minutes I had was not sufficient to developa real opinion about its content.
