Considered one of Jung's most controversial works, Answer to Job also stands as Jung's most extensive commentary on a biblical text. Here, he confronts the story of the man who challenged God, the man who experienced hell on earth and still did not reject his faith.

Job's journey parallels Jung's own experience - as reported in The Red Book: Liber Novus - of descending into the depths of his own unconscious, confronting and reconciling the rejected aspects of his soul.

This paperback edition of Jung's classic work includes a new foreword by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at University College London. Described by Shamdasani as the theology behind The Red Book, Answer to Job examines the symbolic role that theological concepts play in an individual's psychic life.

Industry Reviews

Praise from previous edition: "This book breathes a passionate wish for the regeneration of mankind, integrating the destructive impulse rather than repressing it."--Times Literary Supplement Praise from previous edition: "Dr. Jung speaks with the authority and conviction of his professional insight into the mind of an age whose great longing is for some new heavenly marriage that shall produce a new divine child to save us from impending apocalypse."--Kathleen Raine, Encounter Praise from previous edition: "Jung...points out that the psychology of religion has two aspects, the psychology of religious persons and the psychology of religious 'contents.' He has himself, in this book, made a rare and original contribution to the latter."--A.M. Silver, British Journal of Psychology
