Overview

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.

Mathew Fox extolls the orignal blessing of creativity and bashes the demoralizing bunk of original sin which is inherited from Adam. Thank Goddess somebdoy speaks the truth!

This ex-Dominican theologian argues for a Christian spirituality which celebrates passion, playfulness, and ourselves as part of the earth process. He contrasts this "Creation spirituality" with the historically predominant "Fall/Redemption spirituality."
