Drawn from sermons and lectures that have electrified listeners, here is a concise, powerful meditation on the nature of creativity from Episcopal priest and radical theologian Matthew Fox.
Creativity is Fox at his most dynamic: It is immensely practical and leaves the reader with a message to take into action in life. Fox tantalizingly suggests that the most prayerful, most spiritually powerful act a person can undertake is to create, at his or her own level, with a consciousness of where that gift arises from.

Matthew Fox has devoted his career to unleashing the suppressed mystical and life-affirming traditions within Christianity and other faiths. His theology of Creation Spirituality-the belief that we are born in "original blessing"-earned him the headline-making censure of the Vatican, which officially "silenced" Fox in 1989 and precipitated his dismissal by the Dominican Order in 1993. Now an Episcopal priest, Fox is the author of more than twenty books.From Publishers Weekly:
Once more, with feeling. Having written more than 20 books on the themes of prayer, spirituality and concern for the earth, Episcopal priest and New Age icon Fox doesn't plow much new territory in this intermittently eloquent meditation on tapping into the power of human creativity. Using nuggets of wisdom from various religions and philosophies, with Christian terminology used to buttress his points, the founder and president of the University of Creation Spirituality argues that we are living in a time of ecological and spiritual crisis. In using our creativity, that which differentiates us from other species, in nurturing our sense of gratitude for life as a gift and accepting the inevitability of suffering, we can consciously decide to be faithful to our divine potential and likeness. The choice is ours: praise, joy and union with the universe, or addiction, consumerism and destruction. All of our social, religious, economic systems, even our personal lifestyle choices, are in dire need of re-examination and renewal, says the author. "This is redemption: that we be creative like God is. And that our creativity and co-creation serve God's agenda, which is always compassion." Pushing well beyond the bounds of conventional Christian doctrine, the writer's attempt to shape a new ethic will be welcomed by his many fans. Whether this sometimes repetitive and occasionally provocative book will inspire new converts remains to be seen.
