The Psalms are the great treasury of Judeo-Christian spirituality. They are the prayer book of both the Jews and the Christians, and as the Psalms themselves tell us, Yahweh dwells within them. Psychologically, this means that the living presence of the Self animates the Psalms, which there-fore have the power to constellate the archetype of the God-image in those individuals who are receptive to their influence.
It is not only the devout who can find comfort in the Psalms. Many self-professed irreligious people have been astonished to discover that certain Psalms were the only texts that spoke to their condition during a period of grave psychic upheaval. They found companionship, evidence that someone had been in the same place before them.

Traditional Judeo-Christianity is at a crucial turning point. Its most precious components are almost invisible in the ruins of forms that no longer feed the hungry psyche. But the poetry of the Psalms still rewards the effort to understand and relate their message to contemporary experience. Originally a lecture series, The Sacred Psyche resonates with Edinger's heartfelt, deeply honest responses to these powerful texts.
