The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful...

Sometimes people are surprised that a scientist can be a Christian, and a Christian can be a scientist: I have received comments both ways. I see part of my role as a person as explaining one to the other. Personally, I don't see a dichotomy with being a Christian and a scientist, since all truth, ultimately, comes from God. Whether truth is discovered by repeated experimentation, developing hypotheses, and testing and retesting them, or from intensive study and prayer, ultimately God designed things to be the way they are.

One of the habits my parents had was a love of reading, and fortunately, they passed that on to me. Below I have listed some books I have found helpful as a Christian and a scientist. I've also listed what I am currently reading (which means I need to update this page periodically), and some quotes I like. If you have any comments or questions, let me know. Thanks!

Some books that have been very helpful to me

Books I'm Currently Reading


  • God's Pursuit of Man by A.W. Tozer. Tozer describes how our salvation is really a result of God's seeking after us, and how salvation is much more than "fire insurance".
  • Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges. Bridges describes the sins Christians often tolerate among themselves, and how to deal with them.

Quotes I Like

"Young people, especially young women, often ask me for advice. Here it is, valeat quantum. Do not undertake a scientific career in quest of fame or money. There are easier and better ways to reach them. Undertake it only if nothing else will satisfy you; for nothing else is probably what you will receive." Cecelia Payne-Gaposchkin (1900-1979), astronomer, quoted in "Eurekas and Euphonias: The Oxford Book of Scientific Anecdotes," by Walter Gratzer, Oxford University Press, 2002, page 293.

"The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living." Henri Poincaré, French mathematician. Taken from "Professors who Believe", edited by Paul M. Anderson, InterVarsity Press, 1998, page 89.

"My professional life is divided between teaching and research (with the inevitable pound of flesh for administration - administrators who have power can do good; administration as it comes to the average faculty member's experience involves no power and centers on paperwork.)" Keith E. Yandell, professor of philosophy, University of Wisconsin, as quoted in "Professors who Believe", edited by Paul M. Anderson, InterVarsity Press, 1998, page 213.

Church

My wife and I worship at Oakland Heights Baptist Church in Longview. We are involved in a shared leadership Sunday School class, and Ruth plays viola in the orchestra during worship on Sunday mornings.
