Book Review: Christian Encounters, Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes

As an inventor, astronomer, physicist, and philosopher, Isaac Newton forever changed the way we see and understand the world. At one point, he was the world's leading authority in mathematics, optics, and alchemy. And surprisingly he wrote more about faith and religion than on all of these subjects combined....Newton saw the scientific world not as a way to refute theology but as a way to explain it.

This was another good little book in the series: Christian Encounters. The life of Isaac Newton is a fascinating one to me. He is so different than most of the modern scientist today, yet he is so influential in what they do. While most of academia does all that it can to eliminate God, Newton embraced God and faith. While, I do not agree with all of Newton's Theology, nevertheless, he is an important figure in history to study. His life shows how far science has fallen today, and author Mitch Stokes does a good job showing us this truth through the life of Isaac Newton.
