The Ocean of Truth: The Story of Sir Isaac Newton For Grades 3 - 12
More Info
The book for The Ocean of Truth reading plan can be found by using the following link~

514505: The Ocean of Truth: The Story of Sir Isaac NewtonThe Ocean of Truth: The Story of Sir Isaac Newton
By Joyce McPherson / Greenleaf Press

Sir Isaac Newton is one of history's most renowned scientists. He independently developed the mathematical technique known as Calculus, wrote a treatise on the properties of light and color that is still consulted by scientists, and worked out the mathematical details of the law of gravity. What is less well known is the depth of his Christian faith, and the amount of writing, speaking, and research he devoted to defenses of the tenets of Biblical belief. This book makes Newton come alive for readers. From the detailed account of the events that led to his conversion, his Christian faith plays a central role in this biography, as it did in his life. 137 pages, softcover. Ages 9-12.

By Joyce McPherson / Greenleaf Press

Blaise Pascal was one of the most important scientists and mathematicians of the 1600s. Not only was he a brilliant scientist, but he converted to Christianity as an adult and became a devoted apologist for the Christian faith. Of special interest to homeschooling families, this book recounts the recognition of Blaise's remarkable talents by his father. The provisions the elder Pascal made for his son's education are among the earliest and most successful examples of home schooling. For Christians, the account of Pascal's conversion is particularly moving, as well as Pascal's immediate response of sharing the Gospel with his father, sisters, and the nobleman who was his financial patron. Written by a homeschooling mother. 124 pages, softcover. Ages 10-16.
