"Jung remains an important figure in the humanistic study of religion because he stood for a number of key insights-about the limits of rationalism, about the universality of the human psyche, about the reality of the paranormal, and about the necessity and dangers of religion-that remain as potent now as when he first articulated them. Teaching Jung admirably explores this promise and this scandal through the prisms of pedagogy and classroom practice." --Jeffrey J. Kripal, author of Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred
"As teachers, clinicians, and scholars, the authors have thought deeply about Jung's life and work. Both the beginning student and the advanced reader will find here new perspectives and thought-provoking commentary on Jung, as well as pedagogical pointers from a wide range of classroom settings. While ostensibly focusing on Religious Studies, anyone reflecting on human experience will benefit from this volume." --James W. Jones, Distinguished Professor of Religion and Adjunct Professor of Clinical Psychology, Rutgers University
"With a focus on pedagogical and theoretical perspectives, this volume offers sixteen excellent studies of the intersections of Jungian psychology with religion, theology, and contemporary culture. Authors reflect on their institutional contexts-colleges and universities, seminaries, and psychological institutes-as a framework for reflecting on Jung and religion. The overall experience of reading the volume is exhilarating: one is invited into the classrooms of some of the best thinkers in the field." --Diane Jonte-Pace, editor of Teaching Freud

Content per paragraph is amazingly high. This book could and should become a classic, both for teachers and also for a larger universe of students.
