About the Author

Yechezkel Kluger, Ph.D., was born in New York in 1911 and died in Haifa, shortly after completing his manuscript for this book in 1995. Moving from kibbutz farmer to doctor of optometry to Jungian analyst ("I moved from outer to inner vision"), he taught at the Los Angeles Jung Institute and, with his return to Israel in 1967, established the Israel Training Program for Analytical Psychology. He taught and practiced as an analyst up to the time of his death. Nomi Kluger-Nash is a Jungian psychologist who lives both in Jerusalem and Cummington, Massachusetts, where she practices as a therapist, teaches, writes ... and enjoys the wilderness of her "Woodwinds" home.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By KENNARD LIPMAN on April 11, 2000
Format: Perfect Paperback
This is one of the finest examples of Jungian interpretation of the Bible. It combines contemporary Biblical criticism with profound psychological interpretation. Father and daughter analysts contribute two essays: Yehezikel Kluger's gives the book its title and Nomi Kluger-Nash writes from a more personal perspective about the figure of Naomi. Jungian interpretations are often wildly ahistorical, but the authors are familiar with a wide range of Biblical scholarship and can deal with the text in the original Hebrew. Their only fault is to retain too much of the outdated theories about pre-Biblical matriarchy, characteristic of Jungian works.
