Scientists of Faith

Many of those scientists who were pivotal in the modern scientific revolution were Christians who saw their scientific work as investigating the work of the Creator. A number of authors tell of the faith of outstanding scientists. Henry F. Schaefer in his book "Science and Christianity: Conflict or Congruence" tells of many of the major researchers in physics and chemistry. See also the sections on Opponents of Faith and Other Commentators.
