    great biography about a Bible-believing scientist

    This book, which won the Children/Youth Book of the Year from the National Religious Book Awards, is a slightly fictionalized biography of the great English scientist Michael Faraday, who attended school only a year or two in his entire life but whose work resulted in the electric motor, the transformer, the generator, benzene, improved steel alloys, and liquid chlorine. Faraday was a lifelong firm believer in God, and the book shows that one can be a good scientist and still accept God as the author of creation. I was especially interested in the fact that Faraday was described as a member of the "Sandemanian denomination."
    John Glas and his son-in-law Robert Sandeman, were Presbyterians who broke away from that denomination and established independent congregations whose members were also called "Glasites." Along with the Haldane brothers, Glas and Sandeman are usually identified as primary sources for the kind of thinking that led Alexander Campbell to call for a return to the New Testament order. The Sandemanians are said to have practiced some things with which we would not agree (foot-washing as an act of worship, having dinners as a work of the church, and "respecting" Christmas while not celebrating it to as great a degree as the Anglicans). However, they did preach a "restoration" type of message in opposition to denominational traditions. Charles Ludwig also wrote several of the biographies in Mott Media's wonderful "Sowers Series."

    an absolutely astounding book!

    this book is a great addition to anyone's personal library. i don't have it personally, but i've read it through a few times at the school library for reports and such. this is a good book to see the trials and tribulations Faraday faced in early life. it also goes into how he experimented on frog legs with electric current to prove that the neurons in your body, and every other living thing, carries a small electrical charge.
