Matthew Fox: Essential Writings on Creation Spirituality
Selected with an Introduction by Charles Burack
Modern Spiritual Masters Series
paperback 272pp., $24.00
SPECIAL 20% OFF ENDS MARCH 30
Fox is one of humanity’s tiny band of indispensable universal teachers,
and this magnificent comprehensive compendium of his essential
teachings—brilliantly introduced and edited by Charles Burack—should be
in the backpack of every spiritual seeker. . . . No one writing and
teaching today has done so much, so wisely, so groundedly, so
passionately, to give to us the sacred foundation and the sacred tools
we need to be able to go forward and birth a new world from the ashes
of the old. Do not miss this book, and give it to everyone you can
—Andrew Harvey, author, The Hope and Engoldenment: A Year with Kabir
“For me in today's world, the wise and eloquent presence of Matthew Fox is ever again a source of wonder and gratitude.” —Joanna Macy, author, World as Lover, World as Self
critical insights, the creative connections, the centrality of Matthew
Fox's writings and teaching are second to none for the radical renewal
of Christianity. You miss him and you miss the trajectory of the reform
of Christianity and our return to the real sources.”
—Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, Center for Action & Contemplation, Albuquerque, NM
is not another man on the planet who has championed the sacred feminine
with a fraction of the wisdom, scholarship, creative fire, and holy
chutzpah as Matthew Fox. This collection of Fox’s most life-giving
insights blesses the connection between caring for our Mother-the-Earth
and lifting up marginalized voices, between waking up from the dream of
separation and stepping up to mend the net of creation.”—Mirabai Starr, author, God of Love and Wild Mercy
a great service to us all is this beautiful book, curated by Charles
Burack, a loving quintessence of Matthew's lifetime of revolutionary
blessings and transformative teachings! I am overwhelmed by its power,
liberating and glorious—breathtaking in its radical critique of the
institutional misuse of any religion as accessory to mental and social
imperialism, and breathgiving in its joyous revelation of what he calls
the “creation spirituality” that, I fully agree, animates all the
saving teachers of our world. . . . I feel so grateful for Matthew’s
quest for the Cosmic Christ, who leads Christians into true friendship
with all loving spiritualities, and for Charles Burack’s wise curation
of Matthew’s transformative insights that shine forth from every page
of this precious little book. . . .Read it joyfully, and it will change
—Robert “Tenzin” Thurman, author, Man of Peace: The Illustrated Life Story
of the Dalai Lama of Tibet
Fox’s work holds an enormous importance in elaborating and sharing a
spirituality adequate to our time. He also does not fail to criticize
the type of society in which we live, in which there is no place for
spirituality. And this is urgent if we want to save life on our planet.”
—Leonardo Boff, author, Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor
