About the Author:

Wayne G. Rollins received his B. A. from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, and the B.D, M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Yale. He has taught at Princeton University, Wellesley College, and Hartford Seminary Foundation, and served as Director of the Graduate Program in Religious Studies and Ecumenical Institute at Assumption College, Worcester, MA. He is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ. His publications include The Gospels: Portraits of Christ (1963), Soul and Psyche, the Bible in Psychological Perspective (1999). He co-edited four volumes with J. Harold Ellens on Psychology and the Bible: A New Way to Read the Scriptures (2004) and Psychological Insight Into The Bible: Texts And Readings (2007) with D. Andrew Kille. In 2012, at the University of Amsterdam, colleagues presented Rollins with a Festschrift volume of essays, entitled Psychological Hermeneutics for Biblical Themes and Texts, edited by J. Harold Ellens. It honored Rollins' 1991 founding of the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section of the Society of Biblical Literature, an international organization of biblical scholars. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Assumption College and serves as Adjunct Professor of Scripture at Hartford Seminary.

Review:

Jung and the Bible is a short but exceptionally clear book, not only introducing Carl G. Jung and his work of word association, dream, analysis, archetypes, and symbols, but also leading to a new method of biblical interpretation. . . . Rollins shows a sensitivity to Catholic and Protestant traditions of biblical studies and indicates how psychological and psychoanalytic insights support, enrich, and further nuance more customary methods of biblical study. --The Bible Today (1984)

I'm venturing a course this fall under the banner of 'Freud, James, Jung as Pastoral Theologians,' in which all the reading will be in primary sources from one of the big three, except for your gem, Jung and the Bible. I just don't know any better way for people to come to know Jung intimately. It is such a lucid and penetrating account; it makes Jung accessible without losing any of his power. In fact it shows him powerfully at work . . . --Personal letter from Dr. James Dittes, Professor of Psychology of Religion, Yale University (1984)

What a shame that I'm the first to write a review for this excellent 1983 book . . . . I suppose that had I still been teaching I would have selected Rollins' book as a text, given its focus on the Bible, but I don't think there would have been a better one. Next to Fordham's old book, this is the clearest exposition of Jung's positions that I've seen . . . --Amazon.com review by Mona Gustafson Affinito, PhD (2013)
