Tiner, an educator and author of books like Exploring the History of Medicine and Exploring Planet Earth, uses his communication skills to introduce this new series. The Champions of Discovery Series lists 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, a science teacher, brings these sometimes-forgotten scientists into our consciousness and demonstrates that legitimate scientists have historically affirmed the Bible's teachings.
