James Luther Garner, The Physics of the Natural Philosophers 358 pages, 2008. Pearson Custom Publishing, Boston, Papeback
Physics is appropriate for a one semester course in classical physics for science and liberal arts general education students. It could be used for college or high school courses and is well-suited for Christian College, High School and home school students. Not “Christian” physics it describes the religious context from which most classical physics emerged weaving faith into the main discussion in a natural way. The textindeed offers “an imaginative and fresh approach.”–JWH
