Matthew Fox is the popular and controversial theologian and author of more than 25 books that expose the corruption and patriarchal hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church and invite us to return to a more mystical experience of Christianity. He is founder and director of the Institute of Culture and Creation Spirituality in Oakland, CA. A member of the Dominican Order for 34 years, Fox was silenced by the Vatican in 1989 and formally dismissed in 1993. Now an Episcopal minister, he travels extensively sharing his radical vision of a Christianity that leans toward mysticism rather than orthodoxy, and Divine Feminism rather than patriarchy.
"History will name Fox one of the great Christian spirits of our age." -- John Shelby Spong, author of A New Christianity for a New World
