Twice in the final years of his life, Elder Neal A. Maxwell told a grandson of Henry Eyring's, "You need to write your grandfather's story."
This is that story of Henry Eyring, perhaps the Church's most acclaimed scientist. It is a book about science and Mormonism, written to be easily understood by newcomers to both subjects. It demonstrates why one of the Church's highest-profile intellectuals was also one of its humblest believers. In fact, this story of Henry Eyring shows how intellect and belief go hand-in-hand and how simple, faithful people can change the world.
This book was a very enjoyable read from start to finish. I loved every page. It was interesting, humourous, uplifting, intelligent, and engaging. I definitely recommend it.
Thanks to Dr. Eyring I became a scientist and surgeon. He was the first LDS scientist I had ever heard of and thanks to his example I acheived my dreams.
Search for truth where ever you find it. As science struggles in the 21st century, it needs leadership of past greats like Dr Eyring.
Learn about a Mormon Scientist. Most people don't know that Henry J. Eyring contributed a lot to science. He is a great inspiration to us all.
This book is entertaining, inspiring, and funny. I couldn't put it down. We can all learn something from this great man. After reading it, I feel like I know how to live more happily and more purposefully! Great!
