    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityI already gave this book back to the library It reads kind of like a secondary source re analysis might relying heavily on uotes from Meister Eckhart St Thomas Auinas Wendell Berry and others A few thoughts I especially enjoyed from it went something to the effect of Creativity is the longest standing habit of the Universe Therefore it should be taught in school And the Universe Biology especially doesn't just solve a problem once in one particular way and then stop Kudos to schools that explicitly embrace creativity There were also a few lines from the Upanishads that link joy with creativity Where there is one there is the other So I have to give kudos to the district public school my children attended where the community identified as its core values Excellence Openness JOY

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityI've had this book on my shelf for years and even asked Fox to sign it when I saw him speak in 2016 the topic of creativity and its intersection with the divine is a really juicy one and I was excited to read his thoughts on the matter TL;DR version of this review the author's approach distracts from the many valuable and resonant sectionsAs other reviewers have mentioned there is a rather low proportion of Fox's own thoughts in this book; the vast majority halfway through at least relies so heavily on his interpretations of OTHER people's writing that I feel like I'd have been better off reading Meister Eckhart St Thomas Auinas or Hildegard von Bingen directly Given this structure it feels a bit like an academic thesis that's missing the associated academic rigor as in statements that are written as if they've been clearly justified by the preceding r

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityNot sure when I first read Original Blessing by Matthew Fox I do remember that it didn't engage me Years later as a Catholic Priest I found myself wrestling with what the Catholic Church had become under John Paul II and then Benedict XVI I found a kindred spirit in Matthew Fox's two books 1 Pope's Wars and 2 Letters to Pope Francis Later I began daily reading and meditation of Matthew Fox's Daily Meditations This led me on a journey to re read Original Blessing with a completely different experience This reading journey continued with Creation Spirituality Wrestling with the Prophets Sins of the Spirit Blessings of the flesh and to culminate in CREATIVITY From this book this uotation has become my personal experience We might say that Divine Intimacy is experienced as creativity and New Creation which is accompanied by risk su

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityThis won't be a real review so much as a 'lessons learned' There were a lot of them I like the crux of what Fox believes but he does go on

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityI am a pastor and a songwriterpoet so I have mixed feelings about this book The pastor part of me cringes at many of Fox's theological leanings If you are even slightly orthodox in your faith you will readily see that Fox doesn't just cross over into heresy he takes long bat

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover Creativitya couple of uotes i likeduoting walter brueggemann Every totalitarian regime is frightened of the artist it is the vocation of the prophet to keep alive the ministry of imagination to keep on conjuring and proposing alternative futures to the single one the king wants to urge as the only thinkable one page 102uoting pablo neruda all paths lead to the same goal to convey to others what we are And we must pass through solitude and difficulty isolation and silence in order to reach forth to the enhanced place where we can dance our clumsy dance and sing our sorrowful song but in this dance or in this song there are fulfilled the most ancient rites of our conscience in the awareness of being human and of being in common destiny page 171

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityMatthew Fox is an inspiration and cool breath of fresh air An ousted Roman Catholic Priest for his radical beliefs of Creation Spirituality now an author and Episcopal priest reminds us all of what we were meant to be as humans co creators with that ultimate creative being I found myself hopeful about our spiritual futures because here for the first time I read a religious leader's point of view that was open e

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityI dabble in so many books on theology spirituality and life in general these days I consult them as I prepare articles to write and talks to give and tend to use them possibly even egregiously for my own purposes The dirty truth however is that I rarely read them in their entirety in these hurried pragmatic post university days my addiction to contemporary literary fiction doesn't help neither does having a job and 2 kids But I read Matthew Fox's Creativity in big hungry bites and licked the plate until it was clean There is probably much to uestion in his theology and on a different day of the week I could speak at length on it But this week this book nourished my soul in ways that were

    Creativity Book Ê Hardcover CreativityA mix of 1 star 2 star 3 star 4 star and 5 star material Examines creativity from a place of deep ecumenismsycretism It contains different degrees of creative wisdom with an overall compassion for life and living All of this is explored in many other books but this is a good prereuisite synthesis of it It is both inspired and tired Proceed with caution into these kinds of waters aka be creatively critical when the similarities of various religious traditions are not balanced with their inherent differences Not presenting a full complete picture does disservice to the great religions of the world
