Atheist Russian mathematician Ivan Panin was angry when his wife came into relationship with Christ, so he set out to prove the Bible to have no mathematical integrity. What he discovered made him become a Christ-follower himself. He's credited with being the discoverer of the heptadic (multiples of 7) nature of the Bible. He spewnt the rest of his life devoted to studying the Word of God and wrote many books on this over 50 years. Here's an example of his discoveries:
