Here is a reissue of the critically acclaimed bestseller, named one of the "20 books that changed the world" in New Age Journal's Annual Source Book for 1995. Maverick theologian Matthew Fox provides a daring view of historical Christianity and a theologically sound basis for personal discovery of spiritual liberation.

In this revolutionary work, Fox shows how Christianity once celebrated beauty, compassion, justice, and provided a path of positive knowledge and ecstatic connection with all creation.

About the Author:

Matthew Fox is well-known for having revived the tradition of Creation Spirituality and for being a compelling voice for ecological and socially progressive causes. He is the author of 35 books, including Original Blessing, which has sold more than a quarter million copies. He is the recipient of the Courage of Conscience Award given by the Peace Abbey of Sherborn, Massachusetts. Other recipients have included the Dalai Lama, Mother Teresa, Ernesto Cardenal, and Rosa Parks. He lives in California, where he has founded the University of Creation Spirituality, and is codirector of the Naropa Institute in Oakland.

From AudioFile:

Michael Toms presents a swift and unadorned reading of Matthew Fox's consciousness-changing text. The treatise traces the effect of the advancement of Fall/Redemption theology and the denial of Creation-centered theology on contemporary society. Fox was defrocked by the Roman Catholic Church for the ideologies he supports in this text. Toms, the writer, editor and broadcast producer of public radio's New Age "Dimensions," is at home with the subject. His sincere rendering of the text creates an appropriate earnestness as background. A contemporary interview with Matthew Fox conducted by Toms rewards the listener at the end. C.F.G.
