About the Author

Sir Isaac Newton (1643–1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian. His monograph Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, lays the foundations for most of classical mechanics. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws, by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler's laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation, thus removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the Scientific Revolution. The Principia is generally considered to be one of the most important scientific books ever written. Newton built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colours that form the visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound. In mathematics, Newton shares the credit with Gottfried Leibniz for the development of differential and integral calculus. He also demonstrated the generalised binomial theorem, developed Newton's method for approximating the roots of a function, and contributed to the study of power series. Newton was also highly religious. He was an unorthodox Christian, and wrote more on Biblical hermeneutics and occult studies than on science and mathematics, the subjects he is mainly associated with. Newton secretly rejected Trinitarianism, fearing to be accused of refusing holy orders. Newton is considered by many scholars and members of the general public to be one of the most influential people in human history.

Format: Paperback
Sir Isaac Newton (1643-1727) was, of course, an English physicist, mathematician, whose Principia (published in 1687) founded classical mechanics, and described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion; his other major work is the Opticks. He was also, however, a fervent believer in God, and devoted considerable time in his later years to studying the Bible and biblical prophecy. [NOTE: page numbers refer to a 323-page hardcover reprint edition.]

He states about Daniel chapter 7-8, "By the conversion of the ten kingdoms to the Roman religion, the Pope not only enlarged his spiritual dominion, but did not yet rise up as a horn of the Beast. It was his temporal dominion which made him one of the horns: and this dominion he acquired in the latter half of the eighth century, by subduing three of the former horns as above. And now being arrived at a temporal dominion, and a power above all human judicature, he reigned `with a look more stout than his fellows' [7:20, 25], and `times and laws were' henceforward `given into his hands for a time times and half a time,' or three times and an half; that is, for 1260 solar years, reckoning a time for a Calendar year of 360 days, and a day for a solar year." (Pg.

This is an amazing book. Who knew Isaac Newton was a believer. He had a very keen insight to apocalyptic events as written in the book of Daniel. It is a great read and very informative. Newtons understanding of the verbage in Daniel has been helpful in growing my understanding of what was written there and how it may apply to our lives in the not to far fututre.
