Description

Addressing people in an age of faltering religious structures, C. G. Jung asserted the potential for bridging the gap between scientific knowledge and religious belief through analytical psychology. The concepts of annunciation and synchronicity and the role of the angel in relation to both provide the vehicle through which an exploration of Jung's process of individuation becomes possible.show more

Review quote

Jung's theory of Synchronicity is one of the most fascinating yet illusive aspects of his work. It is essential to a full understanding of what he means by the collective unconscious. In this new work Dr. Montgomery succeeds in bringing annunciation into dialogue with synchronicity. She makes a good case for the idea that the Angel is present in moments of synchronicity, an idea that brings with it an immense legacy of images and stories. I recommend this book. It is both scholarly and accessible and is a significant contribution to Jung's project of inviting a "radical reconsideration of the rational." -- Joe Coppin, Pacifica Graduate Institute In her use of Jung's concept of synchronicity, Tammy Montgomery convincingly shows the human and divine joined at critical moments by angelic messengers. -- Robert McDermott, California Institute of Integral Studies I welcome a book on contemporary theology of depth and on the old but important field of angelology. Tammy Montgomery's book brings angels back into serious consideration in a way that is neither naive nor dismissive. Her insightful book serves as a window on a dimension of everyday experience that we notice in passing but almost always fail to understand and fully appreciate. -- Thomas Moore, PhD, author of Care of the Soulshow more
