553034: Isaac Newton Isaac Newton
By Mitch Stokes / Thomas Nelson

He built the first refracting telescope, authored the book that became the basis for classical mechanics, and wrote the three laws of motion-and that's just a fraction of Sir Isaac Newton's achievements. Despite the fact that he's considered by many to be the most influential scientist in history, he actually wrote more about his Christian faith than he did about natural science. This Christian Encounters biography illuminates Newton's beliefs and how they shaped his view of the world he so desired to understand.
