Silenced by the Vatican in 1988 and dismissed by his Dominican order in 1993 amidst charges of “cavorting with witches,” Fox is “among the most popular of Catholic theologians,” according to the San Francisco Examiner. He is the author of 15 books, including Creation Spirituality, which is also the name of a movement he founded. He directs the Institute in Culture and Creation Spirituality in Oakland, California, offering a curriculum in mysticism, feminism, and environmentalism. His recent book, The Reinvention of Work, is, in his words, “about bringing life and livelihood back together again.”
