Episode Summary

Matthew Fox
Matthew Fox delivers A New Reformation: Creation Spirituality and the Transformation of Christianity. The founder of Wisdom University in Oakland and creator of the wildly popular Cosmic Masses held in the Bay Area and across the country, Fox was for 34 years an ordained priest. Never shy of controversy, he hit the headlines when he was silenced, then expelled from the Dominican Order by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) for founding the Creation Spirituality movement.In A New Reformation, Fox calls for a reawakening of the true Christian spirit and the repudiation of the authoritarian, punitive tendencies that prevail in modern churches, likening today's intolerant "father" ideologies to the religious environment that existed 500 years ago when Martin Luther launched a break from the Roman Catholic Church. As Luther did in his Reformation, Fox calls for new forms in worship, proactive solutions to the ennui of mainline Christianity, which he calls a "sleeping giant" eager to be awakened to the true teachings of Jesus about justice and compassion.moreless
