Historical Setting: France, 1623-1662 A.D.

This book is a biography of one of the most important scientists and mathematicians of the 1600's—Blaise Pascal. Not only was he a brilliant scientist, but he was converted to Christianity as an adult and became a devoted apologist for the Christian faith. Of special interest to home schooling families, this book recounts the recognition by Pascal's father of his remarkable talents and the provisions he made for his son's education.

For Christians, the account of Pascal's conversion is particularly moving as well as Pascal's immediate response to share the Gospel with his father, his sister and even the nobleman who was his financial patron.
