On the Lord of the heavens: "This being governs all things, not as the soul of the world, but as Lord of all . . ." On atheism: "Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance."

Well written and enjoyable! Aug 7, 2005
I love this book, and read it because my 9 year old son said he enjoyed it so much! Newton is an amazing man and is to be looked up to. His accomplishments are incredible, and include more than gravity! I'm interested in his theological writings and thoughts as I never knew he had any...all I managed to learn in school was that an apple fell on his head and this led to his discovering gravity. The things you miss in grade school! Newton is a fascinationg subject for people of all ages and this book is a great starting point for adults who missed much of what went on in class. For children it is a far more accurate and rounded teaching tool than I ever received for those who are interested in science and in character building. Great to read aloud!
Invents a cardboard Newton to fit Fundamentalist needs. Feb 13, 2000
This book serves up a bowdlerized version of Sir Isaac Newton that has been carefully crafted to make him look like a modern Evangelical Fundamentalist. It makes good Sunday-school reading, perhaps, but it doesn't make for accurate biography.
Sir Isaac Newton was indeed a committed Christian and an almost obsessed Biblical scholar, as well as a towering mathematical genius. However, his years of scholarship ultimately led him to reject the doctrine of the Trinity and adopt a system of Christian belief that was closer to Arianism than to orthodox Christianity. See the essays collected in John Fauvel's <> for more information on this view of Newton and the evidence for it in his personal notebooks. See also Dr. Betty Jo Teeter Dobbs' careful study <> to understand how important the thirty years Newton spent investigating the claims of alchemy were in the development of his mature scientific philosophy.
Highly Recommended Oct 9, 1999
This book should be placed in the adult section at church in addition to the children's section. These days new books are coming out claiming Newton to have been a deist and to have dabbled in alchemy, while his Christianity has been completely ignored. This book blows the covers off of those myths. Newton is shown to have been a dedicated Christian believer as well as a dedicated scientist. Many quotes from his one million word commentaries on the Bible are mentioned. His relationships with other important Christian scholars of the day are explored, and his true genius are revealed. The book will even bring a tear to your eye. Highly recommended.
