More About This Title The Living God and Our Living Psyche


Why should Christians bother to read Carl Jung? 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.


Ann Belford Ulanov is the Christiane Brooks Johnson Professor of Psychiatry and Religion at Union Theological Seminary, a psychoanalyst in private practice, and a supervising analyst and faculty member of the C. G. Jung Institute, New York City.


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."

Religious Studies Review
“This book, composed of three essays by Ulanov and a prologue and epilogue by Dueck, constitutes an interesting attempt to revitalize Jung in the theological community, particularly for evangelical Christians. . . . This book is recommended.”
The Pastoral Review
“The scholarship and accessibility of both authors is admirable. . . . I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”
