Product Description

“Once we start turning religion into spirituality again, which is how it began, in its healthy versions, the differences often melt,” says Fox. His luminous visions of future religion, work and education invoke both ancient wisdom and futuristic technology as ways of expressing the needs and vitality of modern human society. The unorthodoxy of this outspoken Catholic priest earned him dismissal from the Dominican order. Now an ordained Episcopal priest, he continues to speak out about the need for people of all ages and beliefs to seek common ground in genuine spiritual experience.


Matthew Fox, Ph.D., is an internationally acclaimed spiritual theologian, an Episcopal priest, and an activist who was a member of the Dominican Order for 34 years. He holds a doctorate, summa cum laude, in the History and Theology of Spirituality from the Institut Catholique de Paris. He has collaborated with Anglican youth to form the “Techno-Cosmic Mass.” He is founder of the Institute in Culture and Creation Spirituality for seven years at Mundelein College in Chicago and twelve years at Holy Names College in Oakland, CA. For ten of those years at Holy Names College, Cardinal Ratzinger – former Pope Benedict XVI – tried to shut the program down; finally forcing him to step down as director and then expelling Fox from the Order. Fox then started his own University, University of Creation Spirituality. He is the recipient of the Abbey Courage of Conscience Peace Award (other recipients being the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Ernest Cardenal and Rosa Parks).
