???Are Jung??'s views compatible with Christian faith? Will evangelical Christians be led astray if they rely on Jung as a psychological guide? What would it look like to place Jung??'s psychological ideas into an authentically Christian framework?

Ulanov tackles some of the most vexing theological and spiritual issues raised by Jung??'s approach to psychological healing. Challenging Jung when he diverges from core Christian beliefs, Ulanov nevertheless builds on key Jungian concepts to show how depth psychology can enrich and enliven our life of faith.

In the introduction, Dueck (with Brian Becker) interprets Jung??'s corpus as ???a pastoral attempt to counter the corrosive effects of modernity.??? In his conclusion, he contextualizes Ulanov??'s lectures for the evangelical community. The book is a finely-nuanced discussion, glittering with gems of insight. Anyone who has struggled to understand Jung, any psychotherapist longing to include spiritual issues in the work of healing, indeed, any person of prayer seeking to relate authentically to God over the long haul, will relish this book.???

Reviews

Steven J. Sandage-- Bethel University"Ann Belford Ulanov and Alvin Dueck offer a rich, masterful reading of Carl Jung, one of the most interesting and controversial thinkers in recent history. They critically and responsibly engage Jung from theological, psychological, and cultural perspectives in ways that can further enliven integrative understanding. I highly commend this book to those who care about an authentic, culturally sensitive spirituality and to those who desire a sound Christian psychology."Thomas R. Schreiner-- Southern Baptist Theological Seminary"In this volume we are treated to a briefer version of Greg Beale's massive commentary on Revelation, but that work's exegetical depth and theological profundity are still present in the abbreviated volume. No one can afford to preach, teach, or write on Revelation without reading Beale." Steven J.
