Overview

Reflections of a Scientist by Henry J. Eyring

Elder Neal A. Maxwell once called Henry Eyring "the most distinguished Mormon scientist of this dispensation." In this redesigned and reprinted volume, Henry Eyring discusses various aspects of science, religion, and life. Some of his topics are truth, heredity and environment, communication, freedom through obedience, the Church, Church leaders, work, the scriptures, the age of the Earth, organic evolution, nature and revelation and miracles. Especially interesting are his illustrations of how science and religion complement rather than detract from one another, and how the principles of both can be used to live a happier, more abundant life.

This book is a compilation of talks by Henry Eyring, known in the physical chemistry community for the Eyring equation, and known in the Mormon community as the father of Henry B Eyring and the brother-in-law of Spencer W Kimball. Eyring does an outstanding job of explaning some of the more controversial scientific/religious issues and describing how he has managed to incorporate these ideas into his understanding of God and His creations. This is an outstanding read for those that struggle to merge their scientific training and their religious faith.
