Scientists of Faith
30 Stories of Brilliant Scientists with Remarkable Faith in God
Bushel & Peck Books
Help children discover how science and faith CAN coexist in this profound, inspirational picture book biography about 30 scientists who’ve also professed their faith in God.
Can faith in God and belief in science be compatible? Might science even deepen our wonder at God's works? Absolutely!
From medieval physician and Jewish theologian Maimonides (1135-1204) to American immunologist Kizzmekia Shanta Corbett (born 1986), readers will meet thirty-one brilliant men and women from different countries, backgrounds, time periods, and scientific disciplines who all share one thing in common: an unshakeable faith in God.
You may already know about scientists like Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), the monk-scientist who discovered the hidden world of genetics, and Katherine Johnson (1918-2020), the African-American mathematician finally made famous in the movie Hidden Figures.
And there are some you likely never heard of like American astronomer Maria Mitchell (1818-1889) who discovered a comet in 1847, and Iranian theoretical physicist Mehdi Golshani (born 1939).
Others include Bienvenido Nebres (born 1940), a Filipino scientist, mathematician and Jesuit priest, and Mary Higby Schweitzer (born 1955), an American paleontologist who found evidence that a T-Rex specimen was a pregnant female.
Scientists of Faith reveals that faith in God isn't just compatible with science—it can be a scientist's most powerful force in the journey of discovery.
