A Spirituality for the 21st Century

The (r)evolutionary Creation Spirituality movement – based in ancient Judeo-Christian tradition, supported by leading-edge science, bearing witness for social, environmental, and gender justice, and voiced most powerfully for this generation by spiritual theologian Matthew Fox – is flourishing in the creative and prophetic spirit of our times!

"When I think of Matt Fox I recall a passage written by Henry David Thoreau in his essay on Walking: “In Wildness is the Preservation of the World.”  For there is something wild in Matt, something primordial, a realization that humans are not here to control but to participate in the wonders of those vast cosmic phenomena beyond all human understanding."

"I felt when I was in (Matt's) classroom that I had entered into the natural personality of God – liberated, creative, loving, and non-suffering. My entire theology underwent a transformation, one that I desperately was seeking. I thrived in his classroom as I listened to this eccentric, brilliant theologian reshape the classic teachings of the mystics into contemporary inspiration and power."

"Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, the most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious-spiritual teacher in America. He has the scholarship, the imagination, the courage, the writing skill to fulfill this role at a time when the more official Christian theological traditions are having difficulty in establishing any vital contact with either the spiritual possibilities of the present or with their own most creative spiritual traditions of the past." ~ Thomas Berry

“Whether our species has a future on Earth does not depend on the development of more gee-whiz technologies, but on whether we are willing to move into the psycho-spiritual dimension proclaimed by Meister Eckhart and elucidated by Matthew Fox in this important book. …In this endeavor, however, time is not on our side. On this crucial journey, let Meister Eckhart and Matthew Fox be your guide. I pray this book sells zillions.”
