Michael Faraday (1791 to 1867)
Sandamanian (Presbyterian)
Discoverer of Electromagnetism and much more.

Michael Faraday was born at Newington, England. As the son of an impoverished blacksmith, he was sometimes given one loaf of bread and told to make it last all week. He early went to work, and while binding books read an article by Sir Humphrey Davey which impelled him to seek a position as Davey's assistant. Faraday went on to make great discoveries in electro-magnetism and chemistry. This is well known. Less well-known is Faraday's deep Christian faith which led him to make his confession at 29 and to become a preacher after he was eleted an elder of his church at the age of 48.
