Arguably Jung’s most
controversial and emotional work, Answer to Job might also be appropriately
titled “Confrontation with the God-Image.” But while it is, in many respects,
a book rooted in Jung’s spiritual woundedness, it is also a beautiful book —
in some ways, a paean to the whole of creation, why we are here, and why life matters.
I suggest this book to Imaginalia visitors because it might be understood,
in some respects, as a foundation for a
depth psychological ethic, which, in turn,
fosters the development of imaginal ethics.
Answer to Job may also appeal to readers
who are wrestling with their own spiritual wounds.
