Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes
Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes was a wonderful, insightful book to read. It was interesting to find out that Newton didn't discover gravity by having an apple actually falling on his head but rather he was thinking of gravitation while sitting under some apple trees when an apple fell. It was also fascinating to read about how Newton made his various discoveries and why he did them.
In everything Issac Newton did, he did it to glorify God. All of his studies, experiments, the hundreds of papers he wrote, he did so he could know God and "give him honor & glory." His religion wasn't a dry intellectual theory but a living, heartfelt relationship with his Creator and he wanted to discover everything he could about nature and science in order to glorify God.
This is a great book for anyone to read who would like to know more about this amazing man.
