Item description for The Ocean Of Truth: The Story Of Sir Isaac Newton (Greenleaf Guides And Famous Men) by Joyce McPherson & Tad Crisp...
Overview A biography of one of the most significant scientists and mathematicians in human history. He invented Calculus, discovered the principles of gravity and motion, and made great strides in the study of light and the use of the experimental method. Sir Isaac Newton used his great works, Mathematical Principle of Natural Philosophy and Opticks, to testify to God. He wrote: "The Supreme God is a Being eternal, infinite, absolutely perfect." As he studied the Bible, he wrote thousands of pages of notes, which have never been published. Few people know that the man who discovered the "Laws of Motion" and Calculus, also wrote about God: "We must believe that he is the father of whom are all things, and that he loves his people as his children that they may mutually love him and obey him as their father." Newton anticipated issues that are still the subject of lively debate today, as when he wrote: "This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being." This book is written on a 5th-6th grade reading level, but younger children will enjoy haveing it read aloud to them.

Great Book for young readers May 12, 2000
I read this book to my five and nine year old and they both loved it. A well written story that is told from Newton's early childhood and on to his adult years in a way that will help young readers remember the facts of his life.
