Promotional Information

One thing above all should be stressed: Jung's ideas [about religion] are not the result of mere theory or of historical research--they have been wrested from the hard facts of his psychotherapeutic practice... Jung is, by profession, a medical pastor of souls... Thus, he not only possesses a very deep insight into the spiritual life of modern man; he also has to look round for what can help these sufferers. -- Hans Schaer, "Religion and the Cure of Souls in Jung's Psychology" Stein provides a good selection of Jung's texts with a clear introduction to his Christian background and theory of Christianity. -- Diane Jonte-Pace
