The Ocean of Truth: The Story of Sir Isaac Newton (Joyce McPherson Biographies) Kindle Edition
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.

Great biography for children of a brilliant and deeply religious man that has influenced the world for good inventing both calculus and the reflecting telescope both of which continue to be in use into the modern era.

The book was very easy to read. I loved it as I love reading about our history and the good men who gave us such opportunity to excel. Our young generations need to learn of Isaac Newton.

I homeschool my 8 year old son. When he was seven I read this book to him. This book is about the complete life of Isaac Newton and it is written in a conversational way. Not fact after fact but an easy flow of "story" about his life from his very early childhood until his death. What a wonderful way to learn about somebody - as if someone who knew him was telling you about him ,from a personal knowlege. This could definitly be for a much older child. I think I would use this for even an 8th or 9th grader. P.S. I wondered if my son would remember anything of the man. The book is written so well that my son will still bring up things about Sir Issac Newton when we are study the solar system or gravity or being knighted.

Purchased for daughter and school project, not many of these around, could her teacher not have picked say, a copy of the Jewish Mishna from the 30s?
