“From a knowledge of his work, we shall know him.”
—Robert Boyle, founder of modern chemistry
Faithful Learning in Chemistry
Do you like to study how the world around you works? Have you always enjoyed experimenting with a chemistry set? Many Christian students who are skilled with chemistry wonder whether they truly belong in a research lab, tempted to justify it as a stepping-stone to more “godly” pursuits. Are sciences like chemistry only a means to an end, or should they be studied for their own sake?
Daniel R. Zuidema argues that Christians not only have a place in the sciences but should be there front and center, fulfilling our calling as stewards and caretakers of creation! Learn why studying chemistry doesn't need to be “justified”—and how discovering and proclaiming new things about creation glorifies the God who made it in the first place!
The Faithful Learning series invites Christian students to dive deeper into a modern academic discipline. The authors, scholars in their fields, believe that academic disciplines are good gifts from God that, when understood rightly, will give students the potential to cultivate a deeper love for God and neighbor.
Daniel R. Zuidema (PhD, Wake Forest University) is professor of chemistry and chair of the chemistry department at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia, where he has taught since 2005.
