He was in charge of the Solar Department of the Greenwich Observatory and probably the outstanding authority on solar astronomy of his day. He authored many books, both technical and popular, including at least one book on the astronomy of the Bible, defending the Bible's accuracy and insights in astronomical matters. He served six years as Secretary of the Victoria Institute, the venerable British society for the defense of the Christian faith. Excerpted from Men of Science, Men of God by Henry M. Morris.
