A Christian worldview is the way that Christians think and makes sense of and the view the world as a whole. The view of the world is not merely limited to Christians but others who were created into being as well. Born of well educated parents, Stephen Hawking is deemed one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history. He has attempted to bring understanding to non scientists in an effort to discern physics and the creation and existence of the universe. Comparison and contrast with my own worldview will reveal Hawking’s interpretation and perspective of family, excelling in his career, and the nature of God.
Stephen Hawking was born and raised by parents who both received education from prestigious Oxford University. He had three younger siblings.
