Kabbalah is the deeply spiritual study of the soul and internal mysteries of Jewish philosophy clothed in allegory and requiring extensive knowledge of the Torah and Talmud. Daniel C. Matt provides a clear overview of the tenets and history of Kabbalah, along with illuminating excerpts from the original text. Edward Asner reads this philosophical work with a deep, slow, sonorous tone, which relaxes the listener. As the history is left behind, Asner's steady narration opens the mind and allows the finer points to sink in while contemplating the overall picture told by the stories. When the audiobook ends, the listener will want to hear it again to try to better understand these mysteries, which seem a little clearer after each period of listening.
