Edinger offers so much of value in this book -I wish I'd read it earlier. Actually, I want to read everything he's written.
It seems to me that contemporary Jungians are making a great step forward with books like this. I wish more Christians had a chance to learn about their faith and scriptures from the point of view of analytical psychology. I'm prepared to purchase multiple copies and send them to clergy friends I've engaged with my limited exposure to Jung. This is an important book and complimentary for certain people of faith who look at things differently. I'm only half way finished with the book and already re-reading earlier portions as I chew on what the author presents. With a comprehensive sweep of the Hebrew scriptures the author provides plenty of wonderful illustrative quotations from C.G. Jung, holy writings, and others. Newcomers to Jung may find some terminology that needs clarification but the book is fun to read and anyone familiar with scripture will be thrilled to attempt to understand it from a psychological perspective. So, buy it and read it and share it with other sojourners.
By the way, I feel the same about works by Hollis, Von Franz and her work with fairy tales, and Hellen Luke (OLD AGE), and I could go on. Thanks --Jack Anglin
