An Order Outside Time
cover image of An Order Outside Time : A Jungian View of the Higher Self from Egypt to Christ for sale in New Zealand

A Jungian View of the Higher Self from Egypt to Christ.
Clarke reinterprets Western Spirituality, using Jungian symbolism, to show that the great stories of ancient Egypt and of the Old and New Testament are processes of what Jung called individuation.
This is the individual's journey from lowest to highest Self; from Osiris to Horus, from Moses to Joshua, from David to Solomon, from John the Baptist to Jesus Christ.
These pairings also reflect what Joseph Campbell calls the Hero's Journey, which may ultimately spiritualize the whole culture.
The ultimate example of individuation, Clarke says, is the Christ, who must now be further understood and developed.

A book of letters from, Harold Musson, who wrote almost daily to his wife from the trenches of France during The Great War.
Harold had chosen to leave his home in Argentina to take part in the war.
The letters and diaries reveal much more than his daily news and views to his wife, and with the help of modern technology Sheila discovered more about Harold, his circumstances and his friends, including Flurry, a New Zealander who also chose to serve in the British Army.
In the book Sheila "writes back to him", to tell him of his family and his friends, whilst preserving his letters as a historic document.
