Mr Stokes gives a great look at the iconic Isaac Newton. The perspective is obvious as part of the Christian Encounters series, yet the person of Newton is enjoyably expressed. This text does not dive deeply into the technical aspects of Newton’s work, but does deeply gaze into the heart of Newton, his desires and motivations.
I appreciated the historical development presentation, exposing the effort and occasional wrong turns present in even the great intellect of Newton. Any young Christian with a head toward mathematical pursuits would enjoy this perspective on a great contributor to the sciences. Others interested in this time period will find this volume accessible in ways more technical accounts would not be.
