Item description for Michael Faraday: Spiritual Dynamo (Christian Focus 4 Kids) by Derick Bingham...

Be inspired by the man who made many discoveries such as switching on a light and starting a computer. While Michael had dyslexia, he was still able to become one of the greatest public lecturers in history. You will also read about his love for God, which far outweighs all of his thousands of discoveries.

Publishers Description
Every time you switch on a light, start up a computer or turn on a television, you do it because of discoveries related to the work of Michael Faraday. In a swimming pool you will be guarded from disease because of liquid chlorine in the water: this is because Michael Faraday first liquefied chlorine. Faraday built the very first electric motor and later the first generator and transformer of electricity. This was to change long distance communication across the earth leading to the ability to talk to astronauts far out in space. His work on electromagnetism is included in Melvyn Braggs' book on 12 books that changed the World. But Michael Faraday also suffered from a disorder known as dyslexia. This meant that he had difficulty in learning to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols. Faraday however, overcame this problem to become one of the greatest public lecturers in history. The interesting thing is that alongside all the amazing discoveries and brilliant experiments there was something more important in Michael's life. He deeply loved and followed the Lord Jesus. On one occasion after a brilliant public lecture he had given at the Royal Institution, the house "rocked" with enthusiastic applause. The Prince of Wales rose to congratulate the great Professor. The thunders of applause however, were followed by a strange silence. Everybody waited for Michael Faraday's reply, but the lecturer had vanished Where was he? Faraday had slipped away to a prayer meeting. Faraday believed that his great purpose in life was to read, as he put it, "the book of nature ... written by the finger of God." Few people in history have read that book more accurately and applied it more helpfully.

Reviews - What do customers think about Michael Faraday (Trailblazers)?

Enlightening and Entertaining  Jan 31, 2010
You have no doubt heard of Michael Faraday as he was a well-known scientist and prolific lecturer whose discoveries and observations affect still us today. The author, Derrick Bingham, brings Michael Faraday's world to light in a captivating manner, highlighting many aspects of his strong moral character, diligence and humility. This book not only provides an historical context for learning about Michael Faraday, but also teaches children what it means to honor God in our work.

In this biography, you and your children will learn about Michael's humble beginnings and the example of faith set before him by his parents. Learn how Michael was encouraged and influenced by his master/ mentor in the bookbinding business when he became an apprentice at 14 years old for a period of 7 years. See how Michael Faraday had a love of learning in a wide variety of subjects apart from science. The author artfully describes the first international journey that Michael took as an assistant to Sir Humphrey Davy and the discoveries he helped to make. The author covers the entire life of Michael Faraday and places rightful emphasis on the fact that Michael Faraday was in awe of God and His glorious creation, so much so that he wanted to study and pass on that awe and wonder to others, especially children although he never had children of his own.

Overall, this is an excellent book, one well-worth adding to your library. A great compliment to this book is Elements of Faith: Vol 1: Hydrogen to Tin.

The age recommendation for this book is stated as Read to Me for ages 6-8 and Read Myself for ages 9-14. My 7-year old son enjoyed it immensely and read it to himself with discussion with me and his father. The book includes a detailed timeline as well as a follow-up with discussion points at the end of the book which includes a Bible verse with each commentary which we found to be very helpful.
