I like the energy of Fox's spiritual movement, but after attending one of his new (cosmic whatchamacallit) masses a few years ago, I found it hokey, but well meaning.

This book is so full of wisdom and powerful writings from so many spiritual masters that it is hard to describe. Bends the mind and surprises the spirit. Plan to spend many hours reflecting on the messages within. Not a fast read.

Why we need to appreciate everyone's faith contributions = excellent!
