Cassirer, Jung and Bultmann share at least one principle, namely their appreciation of the
role played by myth in experiencing the language of faith. All three of the theorists advocate
the reading of mythological texts against the backdrop of a mythological world view.
By accentuating the existential and transformational value of myth, they underline the
importance of myth for religion. However, they do not promote a positivistic interpretation
of myth, which might lead to the rebirth of biblical fundamentalism. This article advanced the
perspective that biblical texts, when read as myth, could open up spiritual experiences, even
to post-modern readers.
