Matthew Fox - A Way To God

June 22, 2016

Aired Wednesday, 22 June 2016, 8:00 PM ET

Is there a way that all of us, people from every culture, nationality and faith, can return to understanding, compassion, real stewardship of this world we share and brotherly and sisterly love. Is there A Way to God?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Matthew Fox, says there is a way… through Creation Spirituality. Matthew is an internationally acclaimed theologian and spiritual maverick who has spent the last forty years revolutionizing Christian theology, taking on patriarchal religion, and advocating for a creation-centered spirituality of compassion, justice and resacralizing the earth. Originally a Catholic priest, he was silenced for a year and then expelled from the Dominican Order by then Cardinal Ratzinger who later became Pope Benedict the Sixteenth. He was expelled for teaching liberation theology and Creation Spirituality. He found what he calls “religious asylum” with the Episcopal Church. He is the author of more than 30 books which have sold more than 1-1/2 million copies in sixty languages!

He joins me Wednesday at 8PM EDT to discuss his latest book, A Way To God: Thomas Merton’s Creation Spirituality Journey.
