Customer Questions & Answers for
Paulist Press Zohar: Book of Enlightenment (Classics of Western Spirituality)

By-and-large the most important Kabbalist literary work, this commentary on the Torah is disputed as to its authenticity and relevance to Judaism. Kabbalah is technically a cult of Judaism, existing as an attempt to represent a mystical understanding of the Torah that is otherwise absent from Jewish writings.

While a deeper meaning to the text may remain elusive to the casual reader, a student of false religious systems will gain an insight to the heart of this worldview that is gaining global popularity. Gnosticism is truly nothing new, as evidenced by this spurious compilation's contents. While this work is mostly useful as a text for understanding Kabbalah (to many, The Zohar is the essence of Kabbalah), this collection of writings reflects many gnostic affections present during first millennium Judaism, and as such can be used to examine the resurgence of gnostic thought in both fiction and non-fiction today.
