William Kirby

William Kirby. Drawing: T. H. McGuireWilliam Kirby (1759-1850) was an English clergyman and entomologist. He wrote many devotional and many scientific works, including a four-volume Intro­duction to Entomology. He is best known, however, for his authorship of two of the famous Bridgewater Treatises, Volumes X and XI, with the title: On the Power and Wis­dom of God and His Goodness as Manifested in the Crea­tion of Animals, with a shorter subtitle: On the History, Habits and Instincts of Animals. He also wrote extensively on flood geology, even including a very relevant exposi­tion of II Peter 3:3-7.
