Isaac Barrow (1630 -1677) was professor of mathematics at Cambridge, even teaching math to Isaac Newton and thus laying the foundations for Newton’s discovery of calculus. However, he was a strong and orthodox Christian who finally resigned to devote his life to preaching God’s Word. More than most preachers of his age, his ministry was fully Christ-centered, not only in doctrine but in life.
