I enjoyed reading how the faith of each scientist couple with his curiosity to understand God's creation was an important influence on their various areas of study. Their drive to learn was not self serving. Rather they used what they learned to benefit others and glorify God. I learned some new details about these scientists. For example I did not know that Kepler collaborated with Tycho Brahe for only a year and a half before Brahe died. I also admire the humility of Michael Faraday and how he used his skill to bind books that he acquired at a young age to spark his love for reading and self-education. Lastly, even the story of how the author followed through with the commitment she promised her father years earlier to complete this book of biographies is heart warming. The book is an easy read, and the chapter divisions depicting each scientist serve as natural breaking points.

This book reminds us that some of the most significant advances in modern science have been made by men with a Christian worldview. We still recognize many of these names and remember the impact these men made on scientific thought. But for the most part, we have lost the memory of their Christian testimonies. My father began this book because he wanted to bring back the full memory of these men, showing their Christian faith as well as an overview of their scientific work.

Christian biography is a fascinating, edifying study. The men in this book faced the same problems that are common to all Christians: demanding family responsibilities and work pressures, temptations and difficult moral decisions, poor health and personal tragedies. A study of how these great men approached these matters is a most valuable undertaking.

George Mulfinger was constantly quoted in my Christian School science classes. Sadly, I found that most of what he wrote was complete fiction.
