Brother Earth:  Nature, God, and Ecology in a Time of Crisis (New York:  Thomas Nelson, 1970).   Widely recognized as a pioneering study in ecological theology, Brother Earth, argued that a biblically based Christian theology offers a way to heal the schizophrenia of the American mind between nature and civilization, between the visions of Henry Thoreau and Henry Ford.  In contemporary terms, nature is neither Divine nor a machine or platform posited only for human use.  Nature is our sibling.
