Editorial Reviews

Review

The book is a good read.

(Barnabas Hughes Convergence)

Cohen's short, readable book is a study in the history of ideas, and can be welcomed as pointing the way to important new directions in the history of mathematics.

(Jeremy Gray Newsletter of the London Mathematical Society)

An extremely helpful book for anyone interested in the relationship between mathematics and religious belief.

(Journal of the Association of Christians in the Mathematical Sciences)

An excellent pick for college-level collections strong in science or spirituality.

(Midwest Book Review)

One can only welcome Equations from God.

(First Things)

A great book, full of lovely stories. It is an important contribution.

(Teun Koetsier Zentralblatt Math)

The main strength of the book comes from Cohen's archival research.

(Ivor Grattan-Guinness American Historical Review)

Well-researched and engaging... breaks through the traditional mold for writing history of mathematics.

(Calvin Jongsma Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith)

Cohen has offered food for thought for historians of Victorian science in general and of mathematics in particular.

(Karen H. Parshall Isis)

Equations from God is well researched and stylishly written... a most welcome addition to the growing literature.

(Tony Crilly Victorian Studies)

Cohen has successfully situated the work of Peirce, Boole and De Morgan in social and religious context, making this book a valuable contribution to the literature on the mathematics of the English-speaking world in the nineteenth century.

(Judith V. Grabiner British Journal for the History of Science)

Welcome and informative book.

(Timothy Larsen Books and Culture: A Christian Review)
