Here is a roll call of faith. The parade of notable live presented here should stir everyone to greatness, but especially young people. These heroes are determined individuals who succeeded while remaining faithful to their Christian principles. As role models for today, they show that God can do great things through a life submitted to Him. These 2-3 page biographies include 33 scientists and are helpful in filling out the “Scientist Detective” pages in the “Digging Deeper” sections of Considering God’s Creation.
The “Scientist Detective” pages were designed to develop a very important learning skill. In the process of finding out information about various scientists, your child is learning to develop the ability to discern the scientist ‘s worldview. Essentially, there are two worldviews—a view of the world with God as Creator, or a view of the world as happening by chance, with man as autonomous and accountable to no one. A person’s worldview colors everything he believes, and consequently, a scientist’s conclusions will be affected by his theology. This skill can be carried over to discern the heart of an author, a television program or even a politician.
