This chapter considers the specific challenges involved in teaching Jung in a theological seminary and a graduate school of religion. The chapter rejects the view that faith might be a drawback to effective teaching, a view common in secular settings and even in many departments of religion. Rather, it embraces faith as a resource in the study of the unconscious. Acknowledging that students of faith may experience fear of as well as fascination with the psyche, the chapter describes how it creates a space in the classroom to explore Jung's ideas by teaching Jung in relation to other major schools and perspectives.
