In A SPIRITUALITY NAMED COMPASSION, Matthew Fox, the popular and controversial author, establishes a spirituality for the future that promises personal, social, and global healing. Using his own experiences with the pain and lifestyle changes that resulted from an accident, Fox has written an uplifting book on the issues of ecological justice, the suffering of Earth, and the rights of her nonhuman citizens. Fox defines compassion as 'creativity put to the service of justice' and argues that we can achieve compassion for both humanity and the environment as we recognise the interconnectedness of all things. Working towards the creation of a gentler, ecological, and feminine Christianity, Fox marries mysticism and social justice, emphasising that as we enter a new millennium, society needs to realise that spirituality's purpose is to guide us on a path that leads to a genuine love of all our relations and a love for our shared interdependence.
