Ariel: Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism (2006)
In the same Cleveland Jewish News item where it was announced that David S. Ariel will step down from the presidency of Siegal College I learned of his “Kabbalah: The Mystic Quest in Judaism” book and that he will be working on another one next year. There are so many introductory texts to Kabbalah by now that it is hard for one to stand out. However this books is not from now it is an enhanced reworking of the author’s 1988 book. Back then it was a more unique endeavor and was well received. More when I lay my hands on a copy.
