SUBJECT: Jungian Psychology/Religion

The long-awaited, extensively revised and expanded version of Mogenson’s provocative first book, GOD IS A TRAUMA: VICARIOUS RELIGION AND SOUL-MAKING. Despite its title, this book is not about theology. When a psychologist writes of God, he must do so within the confines of his own field of inquiry: the psyche. Mogenson’s aim is to focus attention on the religious dimension of the psychology of those overwhelming events we describe as traumatic. Whether a divine being really exists or not, the psychological fact remains that we tend to experience traumatic events as if they were in some sense divine.
Every Christian, Jewish, and Muslim believer should read Mogenson’s book – and every psychologist; everyone interested in soul and religion.
