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.

Answer To Job - AMAZING!!
There are good books, then there are books that can actually change the way you think and see things in life. Carl Jung is a genius, and one of a few men that can take on the psychoanalysis of God himself as portrayed in the Book of Job! Brilliant insights, well written, and to the point. I read this book 20 years ago and still pick it up from time to time and am reminded of how it impacted the way i see religion. And it changed the way I think about life. It comes with my highest recommendation. A magnum opus of a work, and only 100 pages.
