Author Matthew Fox, author of "The Lotus & The Rose" with Lama Tsomo, is a distinguished theologian, scholar, and activist who was silenced by the Catholic Church for his progressive and inclusive beliefs. Co-author Lama Tsomo is an American-born secular Jew who once embraced Tibetan Buddhism as a student, and now is embraced as a teacher.|
