Tiner, author of exciting homeschool books like Exploring the History of Medicine and Exploring Planet Earth, uses his communication skills and background as an educator to compile this series of great new books for the curious minds of children ages middle school and up.In Champions of Invention, for example, we learn that inventors like Charles Babbage (computer); Michael Faraday (electric generator); and Johann Gutenberg (movable type/printing press) gave credit for their achievements to God.The three books in the Champions of Discovery Series list many of the great men of science who also held to a firm faith in God. From Sir Isaac Newton to Louis Pasteur, these intellectuals merely considered that they were thinking God's thoughts after Him. Tiner brings these sometimes-forgotten scientists into our consciousness and demonstrates that legitimate scientists have historically affirmed the Bible's teachings.

This book is an easy read for a middle school child. We really enjoyed reading the different bios and my kids gained some insight into why different math concepts were created. Read full review
