The Judas Legacy

Brandylane Publishers Inc, 2008 - 274 pages
ABOUT THE BOOK Controversial and provocative, The Judas Legacy examines the shadow that hides in all of us, as well as in society and organized religion. Writing from inside the church, with a keen and penetrating voice, author Sandra Rushing illuminates societys collective shadow from a Jungian perspective and reveals the truth that lies beneath the superficial, as well as exposes the hypocrisy and self-righteousness that are so prevalent in American religious and political leadership. From the biblical Judas to contemporary scapegoats, Rushing examines the influence of the shadow and describes how leaders throughout history have used a rhetoric of fear to rationalize their own policies. This is a powerful, incisive study of the dark side of truth. ABOUT THE AUTHOR After spending several decades in the oil and transportation industries, Sandra Rushing became a second-career interim ministry specialist in the Presbyterian Church, USA (PCUSA). She has worked in eight different regions of the PCUSA, and on the executive staff in two of those regions. She holds a dual degree (Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa) in sociology and political science, and has studied the theory of C. G. Jung extensively. Her book The Magdalene Legacy was used as a resource for a documentary on the life of Christ. Filmed in Israel by a British film company, this film The Living Christ was aired for American audiences on The Learning Channel. She is also the author of a book of poetry Essence of Autumn, a memoir Dancing with a Kitchen Chair, and a liturgical resource book, Sacred Bread and Holy Wine: Communion and Liturgical Poetry.
