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!
“(Matthew Fox’s) creation spirituality
is the spirituality of the future
and his theology of the Cosmic Christ
is the theology of the future.”

Thank you Matthew Fox and Adam Bucko for such a wonderful book.”

Have You Read Matthew Fox’s Recent Books?
LETTERS TO POPE FRANCIS:
REBUILDING A CHURCH WITH JUSTICE AND COMPASSION
Writing from the depth of 40 years spent witnessing Vatican corruption and authoritarianism, Matthew Fox offers a series of heartfelt letters to the new pontiff about the great challenges facing the church today. Drawing from the deep spiritual and theological sources that have been suppressed since Vatican II, he implores Pope Francis to restore the sensus fidelium (the sense of the faithful) and reshape a church with justice and compassion.

Pope Francis rails against the ‘globalization of indifference’ - Jason Berry, GlobalPost
…It is unlikely that the handlers around Francis would ever let him get a copy of a book like “Letters to Pope Francis.” But there is an Italian edition forthcoming, and the pope who spends afternoons working the phones by himself to dig up information without a paper trail on how to reform the mess of a Roman Curia is surely a man to make his own decisions on what to read.
It is not a stretch to imagine this Francis nodding at certain passages from Fox, a latter-day Jeremiah with his trumpet wailing at the wall.

Matthew Fox Provides Expert Media Commentary During and After the Papal Interregnum
After receiving broad media recognition for his long struggle in speaking truth about Vatican power and revealing Papal corruption in The Pope’s War: Why Ratzinger’s Secret Crusade Has Imperiled The Church And How It Can Be Saved, offered in-depth expert interviews giving context for the the shocking resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and the new pontiff’s historic response to the liberation theology movement and the Argentinian dictatorship, and his membership in the right-wing organization called Communion and Liberation.
His summation? “The corruption the Vatican is in at this time in history is unparalleled, unless you go back to the Borgias of the 16th century. So we’ll see if this guy can really clean house or not. But let’s not put too much of our energy there. Let’s put energy into starting new base communities, a new version of Christianity that really goes back to the Gospels and gets the job done. That’s the real issue.”
