Reviews
"A beautiful selection of Matthew Fox's vast treasury of writings that is inspiring a new generation of mystic explorers, justice makers, cosmic thinkers, Earth keepers and environmental activists." --Robert Holden, author of Higher Purpose, Holy Shift and Finding Love Everywhere "Matthew 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 think of."--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 "The 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, O.F.M. Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico "Matthew 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, Thoughts and Dreams of an Old Theologian
