Book Review

Naming the Unnameable by Matthew Fox

89 Wonderful and Useful Names for God-

Including the Unnameable God

 

Dr. Fox transcends all religions and develops a spirituality that is universal and one of love. Like others before him he sees God as one with many faces, many voices, but always speaks Love.  Fox presents a God of the father in the Prodigal Son, who envelops us in love, without judgment and calls us to love our neighbor.

 

We live in a time where the organized Church is less and less viable, and the right wing has co-opted the message of the Gospel for its political purposes and brings judgment on people who disagree, and Fox brings us back to the Gospel message of love, and that Love is found in our loving our neighbor.

 

He offers us a message of hope and inclusion. It is a book one reads slowly and prayerfully.
