Great Scientists: Robert Boyle, Student of Science and the Bible

Born in Ireland, in 1627, Robert Boyle is regarded as the father of modern chemistry and pioneered current practices of the scientific method.

When he was only fourteen, Boyle was studying with the aging scientist Galileo.

Robert Boyle not only was a student of the Bible, he was also responsible for the printing and distribution of Irish translations of the Bible.

He felt that all should have access to the Scriptures, and his strong Christian faith was evident in his writings:

When with bold telescopes I survey the old and newly discovered stars and planets; when with excellent microscopes I discern the unimitable subtlety of nature’s curious workmanship; and when, in a word, by the help of anatomical knives, and the light of chemical furnaces, I study the book of nature, I find myself often times reduced to exclaim with the psalmist, How manifold are Thy works, O Lord! in wisdom hast Thou made them all!

In the words of Robert Boyle: “…The sun, moon and other celestial bodies, excellently declare the power and wisdom, and consequently the glory of God!”
