    In this fascinating anthology of Jewish mystical texts, Dan Cohn-Sherbok traces the tradition's development from the early rabbinic period to its present day resurgence. Beginning with an illuminating introduction to its history, this book presents the important texts which underpin Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism, with supporting explanations. Abelson puts the Kabbalah into context as the outgrowth of a long-term evolution of Jewish mystical thought, starting with the Essenes and the Merkabah (Chariot) mysticism of the Talmundic era. He explains how neo-Platonism, Gnosticism, Christianity and other currents influenced and were in turn impacted by Jewish mysticism.
