Well done but some of the footnote references don't check out...editor may have relied on contributors a bit too much.

HASH(0x9f8f1bc4) out of 5 stars The mystical love for God. Sept. 2 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hasidism gave us the way to the mystical love for God, the love we just have to feel to make our lives worth. We have to make God part of our lives, just living conscious about His presence and knowing for sure that He believes in us, that we are capable to do the best we can to be people in evolution, people that, someday in time, will be the perfect being He wants us to be.

By thirdtwin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Useful overview of Hasidism if used in conjunction with other books about the same topic- you'll want other works to compare and contrast with this one- especially if using it for formal study or a source.
