Jung and Christianity Jun 23, 2000
Carl Jung has facinated me since I first encountered his ideas in "Man and his Symbols" as an art student in the early 70s. Jung, of all the author/psychiatrists, recognizes and articulates the beauty and mystery of what it means to be human. The concept of Christianity, like the concept of being human, has been an ongoing brooding omnipresence in my life. Both concepts hovered as important but beyond my ability to rationally articulate to myself or others. Wallace Clift's book is simply brillant. He writes with an elegant intelligence that is a joy to read. I found myself rereading paragraphs in objective admiration at the economy of words; sharpness of insight;and ability to reduce complex ideas, which are not subject to easy assimilation, to understandable and enlightening prose. Thoughtful Christians and admirers of Carl Jung will thrill at the experience of reading this book. It is a beautiful reading experience incorporating all that we read for-ideas,inspiration, understanding, and love of language. Clift makes me glad to be a sentient being.
