Now in its second printing, Catland Books is pleased to present David Chaim Smith's Kabbalistic Mirror of Genesis.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
"The Kabbalistic Mirror of Genesis is the first book of its kind. It rigorously re-examines the first three chapters of the book of Genesis from a radical non-theistic position, completely removing the concept of a creator God. Despite this ‘heretical’ position, the book utilizes a traditionally precise kabbalistic vocabulary and structure. Previous works that have attempted to unpack the text invariably rely on theistic dogma and mythology. Smith’s book is absolutely devoid of conventional religious ‘truth’, and probes the ultimate mysteries using epistemological and ontological questioning from a base of gnostic realization. The Kabbalistic Mirror of Genesis was previously only available to a small group of Smith’s students and close colleagues, but it is now apparent that this work is enormously important and had to be made available to a wider audience."
“ A gifted artist who has a deep contemporary understanding of Jewish mystical wisdom, David Chaim Smith takes us into the domain where zero is one, where the all is nothing, and where the creative moment is constantly renewing itself. The Kabbalistic Mirror of Genesis is not a book simply to read, but to contemplate and live with.”
– Rodger Kamenetz, author of Burnt Books and The Jew in the Lotus
“ An amazing book – boy does it have chutzpah!"
