Here is a new edition of one of Matthew Fox's most powerful books, another in a series of the classic works by the maverick priest and theologian that are being reissued by Tarcher/Putnam.
Moving beyond the scholasticism and rationalism that have long cloaked Aquinas, Fox reveals a passionate, prophetic, and mystical celebrator of the blessings of creation. In this compelling, epic work, Fox writes as "a late twentieth-century citizen deeply concerned about the way our species is treating the Earth, our young, women, the poor, our bodies, and our souls." He speaks with St. Thomas Aquinas in a modern forum, questioning the saint about the Four Paths of creation spirituality, and the responses are culled from Aquinas's works, including pieces never before translated into English.
