Outdoor Men and Minds

In God is at the Organ, Stidger describes Outdoor Men and The Epic of Earth as collections of “nature sermons” (p. 10). In the Introduction to the book itself, he says that “The Bible is an out-of-doors book” (p. 13). Outdoor Men was thus written “to call attention to the fact that the greatest incidents of the Book of books occurred amid the mountains, along the rivers and lakes; in the deserts, on the seas, and have to do with the trees, the stars, the birds, and the storms of the Bible” (pp. 16-17).
