Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim teach at Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and Yale Divinity School. They direct the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, which arose from 10 conferences they organized at Harvard’s Center for the Study of World Religions. They are series editors of the Harvard volumes from the conferences on Religion and Ecology. Mary Evelyn specializes in East Asian religions, especially Confucianism. John specializes in indigenous traditions, especially Native American religions.
John and Mary Evelyn have written a number of books including Ecology and Religion (Island Press, 2014) and edited the Routledge Handbook of Religion and Ecology (2017). Tucker and Grim edited Thomas Berry’s books and are currently writing his biography for Columbia. Berry was a major inspiration for Journey of the Universe. With Brian Swimme, Tucker and Grim created this multi-media project that includes a book (Yale 2011), an Emmy award winning film, a series of Conversations, and online courses. They also edited Living Cosmology: Christian Responses to Journey of the Universe (Orbis Books, 2016).
