about

Job, Jonah, and the Unconscious is the latest work by natural theologian M.A. Corey. It is a ground-breaking synthetic work utilizing the unique perspective of modern depth psychology to interpret the underlying meaning of two of the most fascinating books of the Old Testament, Job and Jonah. In the process it weaves together a unique development perspective on the age-old problem of evil that satisfies both the traditional theologian and the hard- core skeptic. It is able to do this by resorting to a concept of metaphysical necessity that is able to account for the temporary existence of evil in the world, while simultaneously preserving the omnipotence and omnibenevolence of God. The end result of this fascinating study is the elucidation of the cause of moral evil, along with the general defense of traditional monotheistic religion.
