    After reading historical fiction that brought Hildegard von Bingen to life I plunge into Matthew Fox's way of uncovering Hildegard's voice Mr Fox wants Hildegard to speak now to empower each of us at this moment to be greenly alive with praise and compassion and justiceI draw strength from Hildegard's visions of the church and I thrill at Matthew Fox's interpretation So anthropocentric has religion become just like education economics an

    Matthew Fox is a wonderful writer and thinker and Hildegard of Bingen is phenomenal What frustrated me about this book is that it was a book about her and gave very little opportunity for direct connection with her essence It left me hungry thirsty longing for Hildegard's words Though I greatly appreciate Fox's words and those of all of the beings he likens Hildegard to in the end this book is about Fox's relationship to Hildegar

    I REALLY wanted to like this book I tried very hard but I just couldn't It has nothing to do with the topic Hildegard was an amazing woman Her visions art and music really are treasures This book though does something that personally rubs me the wrong way It spends the entire book telling me what Hildegard thinks rather than showing me This was the first book I ever read about Hildegard and now that I'm familiar with thi
