Thomas Berry received his Ph.D. in European intellectual history with a thesis on Giambattista Vico. Widely read in Western history and theology, he also spent many years studying and teaching the cultures and religions of Asia. Thomas authored two books on Asian religions, Buddhism and Religions of India. For more than twenty years, Thomas directed the Riverdale Center of Religious Research along the Hudson River. During this period he taught at Fordham University where he chaired the history of religions program and directed some twenty doctoral theses.
With Brian Swimme he wrote The Universe Story (Harper San Francisco, 1992), which arose from a decade of collaborative research. His contributions to discussions on the environment are in his books The Dream of the Earth (Sierra Club Books, 1998), The Great Work: Our Way into the Future (Random House/Bell Towers, 1999), and Evening Thoughts: Reflecting on Earth as Sacred Community (Sierra Club/University of California Press, 2006). His final books focusing on world religions were published in 2009: The Sacred Universe: Earth, Spirituality, and Religion in the Twenty-first Century by Columbia University Press and The Christian Future and the Fate of Earth by Orbis Books. Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim assisted Thomas in editing his books.
