"He may be one of the most famous psychologists of the twentieth century, but are his views and ideas really compatible with Christian faith? While acknowledging some Christian suspicion of Jung, Ann Belford Ulanov and Alvin Dueck maintain that Jung's psychology can indeed enhance the life of faith."--BOOK JACKET.
???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.???
