Reviews

"By connecting Eckhart's wisdom to the problems of today, Fox creates a sense of optimistic urgency; solutions do not wait in the future or lie in the past, but are present right now if people choose to act with compassion and conviction. The book is not only an excellent introduction to Eckhart's theology, but also an inspirational guidepost for connecting faith with activism." -- Publishers Weekly "In this book Matthew Fox, one of the gigantic Christians of this century, engages and presents Meister Eckhart, one of the gigantic Christians of the ages, in dialogue with some of today's best minds. The result is a stunning new vision of Christianity that transcends both creeds and boundaries. It is a thrilling read." -- John Shelby Spong, author of The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic "Matthew Fox is perhaps the greatest writer on Meister Eckhart that has ever existed. No one paints as broad a portrait of the master as Fox does in this book." -- Steven Herrmann, author of Spiritual Democracy "I can't imagine a richer, juicier, or more relevant introduction to the grandeur and brilliance of Meister Eckhart's vision. Matthew Fox has given us yet another radioactive, stunning work. Every chapter is a pure, clear, and swift revelation." -- Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism "[Fox] not only gives us his beloved spiritual father as a living presence for our lives but also brings us a whole rainbow of mystic-warriors as companions on the way." -- Joanna Macy, coauthor of Active Hope "Whether our species has a future on Earth does not depend on the development of more gee-whiz technologies, but on whether we are willing to move into the psycho-spiritual dimension proclaimed by Meister Eckhart and elucidated by Matthew Fox in this important book." -- Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind "Crucial! Fox brings Eckhart's voice into cogent meeting with a long list of pivotal global luminaries. Marrying these confluences may well determine the success or failure of our planet's inevitable process toward globalization and multiculturalism." -- Kurt Johnson, coauthor of The Coming Interspiritual Age "The special uniqueness of this book lies in Matthew Fox's ability to put a host of ancient and contemporary thinkers and social activists in close mutual relationship with Meister Eckhart. . . . With this book, Matthew Fox gives us an intimation that hope in the future is not some idle passing thought. That it is even possible to have written this book is a reminder that such spiritual searching and the worldwide diversity that accompanies it is more prevalent than one would think." -- Fred Gustafson, Literary Aficionado
