This lecture was very cleverly crafted to build on itself so that the young people attending the lecture could follow the science. Faraday followed in the footsteps of his mentor in this series of youth lectures at the Royal Academy of Science.
Newton and Faraday were both very deeply Christian. They understood the complexity of the universe and that man could not make it nor destroy it.
I give this book 5 stars. Everyone old and young should read it.
