In the late 1970s, an extraordinary scientist and leader in the development of modern analytical chemistry left a prominent career at the University of Illinois, and, to the surprise of many, channeled his passion for academic excellence and innovation into what would become a worldwide missions university. His name was Dr. Howard Malmstadt, and everything he did, he did with intelligence, insight, and vision.
Into the Light tells the story of this remarkable scientist, professor, and missions innovator—a man whose mark on the twentieth century is seen in the thousands of individuals who have carried on his work in science and service. Dr. Malmstadt’s story challenges new generations of readers to learn from his legacy, put feet on their faith, and change the world.
