Item description for Isaiah Horowitz: The Generations of Adam (Classics of Western Spirituality) by Isaiah Horowitz & Miles Krassen...
Overview "In the Name of God. This is the book, Generations of Adam. Blessed is god who helped me until this point. Many words were produced, concerning great matters. As a result, human action has been explained, regarding both a person's [divine] image and the likeness of his soul and body. Just as his Torah has been explained, so has his formation, which involves the garments of light that became garments of skin. Yet in the future his eye will be opened to great light, the light that is concealed. [We have also explained] the true light, God's light that is concealed for the future, according to the secret of 'on that day YeHYeH YHVH will be One.' This is entirely dependent on the spiritual arousal of human beings, who through their freedom of will have been granted the power to arouse the supernal. [We have also explained] how everything is foreseen, yet permission is granted. Thus is the ultimate purpose of the creation of human beings. Also, the meaning of the 'world to come' and its eternity [has been explained]. For the cloud will perish along with the contamination of the serpent, which Adam drew down through his sin. Evil will be transformed to good and then there will be a world that is completely good."
