Banyen's Description: 

Though he lived in the 13th century, Meister Eckhart is in many ways modern. His thinking was deeply ecumenical, encompassing not just Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism but also shamanism and indigenous spirituality. He advocated for social, economic, and gender justice; taught about what we now call ecology; and championed artistic creativity. All of these elements inspired Matthew Fox and influenced his Creation Spirituality.

While Fox sees Eckhart's influence on everyone from Teresa of Avila to Eckhart Tolle, Karl Marx and Carl Jung to Annie Dillard and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, he also wants to introduce Eckhart to those activists addressing contemporary crises. Toward that end, and as he did in his Hildegard of Bingen, Fox creates metaphorical meetings between Eckhart and the Dalai Lama, Thomas Merton, Thich Nhat Hanh, Joanna Macy, Black Elk, Rumi, Adrienne Rich, Teilhard de Chardin,  and others. The result is wonderfully reader-friendly while also being profoundly substantive and inspiring.

Meister Eckhart deserves to be present in all our conversations about interfaith, in all our interspiritual dialogues and actions… Clearly, religion needs re-creating.This is the kind of thing Eckhart and other deep mystics can inspire… His leadership calls us to a new level of evolution and consciousness. He calls us to leave old wineskins behind. Such a leap is not an option. We are talking about our survival as a species…
 

Eckhart is a superb gardener for your mystic-warrior, a planter of seeds and waterer of the same.

I can’t imagine a richer, juicier, or more relevant introduction to the grandeur and brilliance of Meister Eckhart’s vision. Matthew Fox has given us yet another radioactive, stunning work. Every chapter is a pure, clear, and swift revelation.” —Andrew Harvey, author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism

The author of 30 books, Matthew Fox has been an instrumental teacher and scholar in the revival of Western mysticism, particularly the work of Hildegard of Bingen, Meister Eckhart, and Thomas Aquinas.
