"Jung and His Mystics is a bold and original effort to draw out the implications of a Jungian understanding of the psyche, God, and religion for theology and contemporary society... it will be of great interest to those who are interested in the psychological foundations of spiritualty and theology." - Sanford L. Drob, PsycCRITIQUES
