Quite simply, the easiest introduction to Jewish mysticism you can read.
An insightful and absorbing introduction to the ten gates of Jewish mysticism and how they apply to daily life.
"There is a place that is as far from here as breathing out is from breathing in. For the word is very near to you. Where life forever holds gentle sway over death, where people are human with the  same grace that a willow is a willow, where the struggle and the yearning between male and female is at last resolved.... It is to begin with, all inside us."
—from the Introduction
"In the past decade I’ve read Honey from the Rock at least half a dozen times. Every time I read it I wonder if I have ever read it before. Either it keeps changing, or I do. Maybe it’s both.... As someone told me: 'Lawrence Kushner is a mystic. He gives you flashes of insight.'”
—from the Publisher’s Preface to the Anniversary Edition
“Captures the flavor and spark of Jewish mysticism. Read it and be rewarded.”
Elie Wiesel
“An exhilarating montage of spiritual encounters.... A work of wisdom and inspiration.”
Library Journal
“Rabbi Kushner is a beautiful storyteller.”
Los Angeles Times
“A book which makes me feel God smiling.... It has fed my heart.”
Ram Dass
“A work of love, lyrical beauty, and prophetic astonishingly effective chronicle and means of meditation.”
Father Malcolm Boyd, The Christian Century
