These in-depth conversations with leading Jungian analysts and scholars—including Murray Stein, Ann Lammers, Paul Bishop, and David Tacey—explore C.G. Jung’s lifelong wrestling with Christianity and its importance for us today. Can analytical psychology be understood as Jung’s attempt to recover a genuine experience of being Christian? If so, was it successful?

Jakob Lusensky, in an accessible introduction and throughout these remarkable conversations with experts, pursues Jung’s dreaming the myth onward not merely as a fact of history, a historical breakthrough in how and why we undertake analysis, but as a living fundament for people on the path of individuation today—with implications reaching far beyond the individual.

Wide-ranging and insightful, this collection is meant for Jungians (analysts, analysands, readers) for Christians (laypeople and leadership), and for any person anywhere likewise wrestling at the intersection of psychology and religion.
