The most important part of this separation from the "big universe" is the association of flesh with sin. Fox's mission is to reclaim flesh and the human body as sites of meaning, even of divinity. "Instead of fear from flesh and flight from flesh and dogmas against flesh, it is time for the awe of flesh." In this service, he enlists sources as diverse as Walt Whitman, mystic philosopher Rumi, management consultants, biologists, and--oh yes--Jesus. It's hard to know what to make of this book, except to sit back and wonder at the odd thoughts which flash through Fox's mind.
