This Psychological Commentary on the Gospel of John may prove to be John Sanford’s magnum opus.

In it, he weaves together the interests and themes of a lifetime to bring out the interior (psychological and spiritual) levels of meaning in the fourth Gospel. His main tools are the precise significance of the original Greek words, the teaching of ancient Fathers of the Church, and the modem psychologies of Jung and Kunkel.

The result is a masterful and meaty synthesis of scholarship, theology and psychology which only John Sanford could have put together. Mystical Christianity is a veritable feast for anyone seeking a fresh and invigorating interpretation of John’s Gospel, or exploring the interface between Christian spirituality and depth psychology.
