Galileo by Mitch Stokes

Galileo by Mitch Stokes is a highly entertaining and informative book that helps rewrite the conventional wisdom the it was the church that stood in the way of Galileo and others as they pushed forward the idea that the earth was not the center of the universe. The geocentric view was in fact widely adhered to by secular scientists, and the threat to their reputations and ability to earn a living were at the “center” of the opposition to Galileo. This is the same problem we face today with global warning, evolution, and many other areas where scientists refuse to look the facts straight in the eye. Galileo is part of Thomas Nelson’s Christian Encounters Series. I haven’t found one yet that doesn’t present a sound biblical worldview.
