Traditional concepts of God are no longer tenable for many people who nevertheless experience a strong sense of the sacred in their lives.The Religious Function of the Psycheoffers a psychological model for the understanding of such experience, using the language and interpretive methods of depth psychology, particularly those of C.G. Jung and psychoanalytic self psychology. The problems of evil and suffering, and the notion of human development as an incarnation of spirit are dealt with by means of a religious approach to the psyche that can be brought easily into psychotherapeutic practice and applied by the individual in everyday life.
The book offers an alternative approach to spirituality as well as providing an introduction to Jung and religion.

Editorial Reviews

"The book's strengths include its treatment of archetype and complex, its practical synthesis of Jung and Kohut, its critiques of psychoanalysis, its attempts to synthesize religion and psychology, and its relatively self-critical awareness of assumptions and biases...The book will be appreciated most by clinicians and pastoral counselors but also by psychologically sophisticated laypersons ."-"Religious Studies Review
