In The Coming of the Cosmic Christ , Matthew Fox addresses mysticism as an essential part of spirituality and Christian faith. “In what may be considered the most comprehensive outline of the Christian paradigm shift of our Age, Matthew Fox eloquently foreshadows the manner in which the spirit of Christ resurrects in terms of the return to an earth-based mysticism, the expression of creativity, mystical sexuality, the respect due the young, the rebirth of effective forms of worship—all of these mirroring the ongoing blessings of Mother Earth and the recovery of eros, the feminine aspect of the Divine.” Bishop John Spong.  We will explore and discuss some of the rich teachings and ideas in The Coming of the Cosmic Christ.

“This book is a classic.” --  Father Thomas Berry
Fox captures…as few theologians have ever done before, the feminine aspects of God so suppressed in traditional Christianity.”  --Bishop John Spong
“The eighth wonder of the world…convincing proof that our Western religious tradition does indeed have the depth of imagination to reinvent its faith.” -- Brian Swimme
Brings both sustenance for the heart and wisdom for the head to those of us renewing a Jewish mysticism that seeks to heal the world.”  --Rabbi Arthur Waskow

About the leader(s)

Matthew Fox

 Rev. Fox, is an author, theologian, and activist priest. He has been calling people of spirit and conscience into the Creation Spirituality lineage for over 50 years. His 39 books, lectures, retreats, and innovative education models have ignited an international movement to awaken people to be mystics, prophets, contemplative activists, who honor and defend the earth and work for justice. Matthew today is an Episcopal priest after having been expelled from the Dominican Order, to which he belonged for 34 years, by Cardinal Ratzinger for 1) being "a feminist theologian" and 2) "calling God 'Mother'" and 3) "working too closely with Native Americans."  He tries his best to wear these badges of honor with humility.
