Review:

Hearn encourages Christians to consider that a life in science might be their "call" to ministry. Science is regarded by him as a mission field for folks with appropriate gifts and interests. -- CTNS Bulletin 18.2, Spring 1998

In his 20 years in the scientific community as a biochemist and professor, Walter Hearn viewed first-hand the ethical, professional, and spiritual implications of following a divine calling into the laboratory. -- Moody, May/June 1998

In this book, Walter Hearn, biochemist, poet, and journalist, shares his experience in combining scientific and Christian lifestyles. His reflections are offered in the hope that they will encourage some Christians to recognize a career in science as a "calling" to ministry, and that his advice will enhance their effectiveness in both science and ministry. -- Radix, Spring 1998

Reformation-based churches profess that all truth is God's truth, yet few give as much encouragement to young people going into scientific fields as to those going to the mission field. This book helps redress the balance. -- Nancy R. Pearcey, author of How Now Shall We Live? and The Soul of Science

Walter Hearn offers convincing evidence that God is calling more Christians to become scientists. Hearn points out that relatively few evangelicals seem to view science as a legitimate calling. -- Faith Today, July/August 1999
