Kerubim Press has published an excellent introduction to the Qabalah by Gordon Strong, author of The Five Tarots:
The Qabalah has long been a system of mysticism and magic that few could truly understand, thanks to the difficult and obtuse language and symbolism employed. Many texts have appeared, offering to explain this mysterious subject, but few do so as succintly as this book. The Qabalah: Beyond the Veil aims to lift the lid on this extraordinary tradition, utilised by Jews, Christians and Hermeticists. It provides a brief look at the primary aspects of the system, from the Sephiroth and Paths on the Tree of Life to the Lightning Flash and those most impenetrable of all veils: those of Negative Existence itself.
“New insights into the Qabalah are difficult to discover, yet Gordon Strong offers new views on many aspects of the Tree of Life. This impressive study provides a valuable key to understanding an essential element of the Western Magical Tradition.”
— Alan Richardson, author of Priestess, The Magician’s Tables, and Dark Light.
“The Qabalah is the fundamental system through which the student may yet catch a glimpse of God, and grasping the Qabalah can be a daunting activity. Gordon Strong sets out to shed some light and understanding on this fabulous system of approaching the entirety of everything.”
— Gary Vasey, author of Inner Journeys and The Mystical Hexagram
“An excellent overview of the Hermetic Qabalah providing depth and magical insight without clutter or unnecessary jargon—a worthy addition to the library of student and adept alike.”
— Peregrin Wildoak, author of By Names and Images: Bringing the Golden Dawn to Life
