Christian Encounters: Isaac Newton by Mitch Stokes

This edition to the Christian Encounters is a biography on Isaac Newton. The book is 155 pages with 15 chapters full of detailed accounts written by Mitch Stokes who has a P.H.D. in Philosophy. Stokes accurately depicts Newton’s life and presents the philosophy of the times and the ideas Newton was learning and was up against. Reading this biography will take you deeper into Newton’s life and beliefs if you have yet to study them.

I found the book very informative and a great read. Isaac Newton’s faith, diligence, and inquiry are awe-inspiring. Through his life Newton has changed the world and still continues to have an effect even after his time. I find myself wanting to study Newton’s work further after having read this book by Stokes. Newton’s research was for the sake of knowing God and how things work producing a wonderful combination of science, philosophy, and theology. My attention was not lost for a moment and was intrigued constantly by the information it provided. Overall, the biography was cohesive and very understandable.
