Robert Boyle (1626-1691). Boyle was the “Father of Modern Chemistry” and a founder of the Royal Society of London. He made significant contributions in physics and chemistry. Among his contributions: he discovered the basic law of gas dynamics; relating gas pressures to temperature and volume. He devoted much of his time to propagate the gospel. He wrote the Boyle Lectures in the field of apologetics proving the Christian religion. Robert Boyle declared:

“Our Savior would love at no less rate than death; and from the supereminent height of glory, stooped and debased Himself to the sufferance of the extremist of indignities, and sunk himself to the bottom of abjectness, to exalt our condition to the contrary extreme.”

Robert Boyle, in his work titled Some Considerations Touching the Style of the Holy Scriptures, He declared:

“The Books of Scriptures illustrate and expound each other; as in the mariner’s compass, the needle’s extremity, though it seems to point purposely to the north, doth yet at the same time discover both east and west, as distant as they are from it and each other, so do some texts of Scripture guide us to the intelligence of others, for which they are widely distant in the Bible.”
