Fox's story mirrors the questions and concerns of those millions of contemporary seekers with a "passion for holiness"; a yearning for a Christian spirituality committed to social justice, feminism, and environmentalism; and a desire for ritual that heals, celebrates, and honors the gifts of being in each of us. Always relentlessly ahead of his time, Fox embraces his role as a "post-denominational priest," passionately exploring the present and future role of faith, church, and a spirituality grounded in the emphatic belief that finding God is still possible.
