19.95

n A Spirituality Named Compassion, Matthew Fox delivers a profound exploration of the meaning and practice of compassion.  He establishes a spirituality for the future that promises personal, social, and global healing. Using his own experiences with the pain and lifestyle changes that resulted from an accident, Fox has written a challenging book on that promise that Jesus and Isaiah, Buddha and Mohammad all teach: Our capacity for compassion. Fox marries mysticism with social justice, leading the way toward a gentler and more ecological spirituality and an acceptance of our interdependence which is the substratum of all compassionate activity.  He treats the topics of the Meaning of Compassion, Science, Nature and Compassion, Sexuality and Compassion, Psychology and Compassion, Creativity and Compassion, Economics and Compassion, Politics and Compassion.  A road map to fulfillment for the coming century. Fox defines compassion as the working out of our shared interdependence and he calls for creativity put to the service of justice.  He argues that we can achieve compassion for both humanity and the environment as we recognize the interconnectedness of all things. Working toward the creation of a gentler, ecological, and feminist Christianity, Fox marries mysticism and social justice, emphasizing that as we enter a new millennium society needs to realize that spirituality's purpose is to guide us on a path that leads to a genuine love of all our relations and a love for our shared interdependence “Important, well-written, and disturbing.”  --Milwaukee Journal; “Well worth our deepest consideration…Puts compassion into its proper focus after centuries of neglect.” –The Catholic Register
