Banyen's Description: 

Passionate and provocative, Fox (the popular and controversial author of The Coming of the Cosmic Christ) uncovers the ancient tradition of a creation-centered spirituality that melds Christian mysticism with the concemporary struggles for social justice, feminism, and healing the Earth.

Basic to Fox’s notion of creation spiritual is the gift of awe—a mystical response to creation and the first step toward transformation. Awe prompts indignation at the exploitation and destruction of the earth’s people and resources. Awe leads to action.

“I wonder if the time has not come, in our efforts to move humanity to a fuller expression of its destiny, to begin asking the most basic of all moral questions: How can we honor one another? For “honor” is another word for “reverence,” and reverence comes from awe. If we have begun to intuit the awesomness of the universe and teh awesomness of our being here, then it is time to honor one another.

How can we do this? One way is to ask one another to teach us things.”
