Drummond was a naturalist, who studied physical and mathematical science before dedicating himself fully to Christian ministry. Written just a few decades after On the Origin of Species, Natural Law in the Spiritual World argues against the claim that faith is in conflict with science, by instead postulating that the scientific principle of continuity extends beyond our physical world, into the realm of the spiritual.
