Reasonable sampling from the Zohar ( )
  Hilton_Kaufman | Mar 9, 2014 |
Knjiga sjaja je osnovno delo jevrejskog misticizma, najdublje postignuće Kabale. Gerom Šolem je jedan od najvećih autoriteta za jevrejski misticizam i napravio je izbor za ovo izdanje iz mnoštva spisa koji čine preobimnu Knjigu sjaja. Izabrao je poglavlje o stvara ju, životu duše, bezdanima vere, ljudske vere i božanske patnje i smrti, izgnanstvu i izbavljenju i skrivenim značenjima Tore.
