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!
"Matt has an unflagging passion for the material he teaches, fed by his...firm belief that the creation spirituality traditions around the world, combined with the insights of science...offer the true paths for the compassionate and creative evolution of humankind." ~ Charles Burack
"Matt has drawn hundreds of thousands of people around the world toward fuller and more satisfying spiritual experience, and nurtured resurgence and creative blossoming of creation spirituality in the post-modern world." ~Jeremy Taylor
"...Original Blessing was in many ways a breathtaking book because it challenged the core of the primary interpretative Christian myth that proclaimed the basic fallen sinfulness of human life...." ~ Bishop John Shelby Spong
“Fox's work deserves serious attention because it has struck a nerve in our time and represents broad and forward-looking cultural and religious developments." ~ Joerg Rieger
"Those who illumine the questions of life walk a dangerous path...They threaten old paradigms and open new possibility... Matt Fox did such things and...brought to light again the notions of basic wholeness and the essential goodness of creation." ~Sister Joan Chittister, OSB
"Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, the most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious-spiritual teacher in America." ~ Thomas Berry
"Matt has recognized a treasure trove of artists who have become colleagues in imagination, opening doors to creative experiences in the art-as-meditation dimension of Creation Spirituality study and practice. " ~ Robert Rice
"(Matthew Fox is) a visionary leader...capable of gathering dedicated creative minds around him, to forge a new direction from the heap of old ashes of failed academic and religious promise." ~ Genny Lim, poet
"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." ~ Thomas Berry
"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." ~ Caroline Myss
"(Matthew Fox's) creation spirituality is the spirituality of the future and his theology of the Cosmic Christ is the theology of the future." ~ Bede Griffiths, OSB

“This book on Eckhart stands as testament to Fox’s own creative spiritual genius.” –Tikkun Magazine
“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.”

Illumined and honored here are the moral clarity and courage of young activists the world over, as they unmask the deadening abuses of an exhausted civilization. Matthew and Adam help us hear these voices and catch the spiritual power moving through them.”
