Everyone knows that science and the Christian faith are incompatible - right? Secular thought often portrays religion as the enemy of science, but the truth is that many of the world's greatest scientific discoveries were made by persons of faith, seeking to honor God and His creation. Scientists of Faith relates the personal stories of forty-eight scientists and provides a brief overview of each person's contribution in their own particular field. Included are such notables as Johannes Kepler, Blaise Pascal, Michael Faraday, Gregor Mendel, and George Washington Carver. As the author writes, "Christians and the Christian worldview were crucial to the formation of the early sciences...If science, technology, and medical advances, properly used, are examples of God's grace to us, then those who brought them into being should be credited for them...None of these men was perfect. I have deliberately shown each one's faults because that is how the Bible depicts the saints. I have chosen to respect all Christians who have honored the living God with their lives and work, regardless of their theological differences. They began their search for truth with the assumption that God exists, that His Word is true, and that He has created an orderly universe that reveals Himself." Scientists of Faith provides irrefutable evidence of the historic link between the Christian faith and the advancement of science throught the centuries and is an excellent resource for apologetics and science studies.Publishers Description
