Galileo, by Mitch Stokes

Galileo is another wonderful addition to the Thomas Nelson Christian Encounter series. Following the incredible changes in both the arts and humanities, the later renaissance period set the world on edge as it challenged long-held notions in the sciences. Galileo played an instrumental role in this revolution.

Stokes eloquently introduces us to the character behind the science. The author leads the reader through the varied cultural, political, and religious nuances of the times. Few could have negotiated the obstacles of those years as wisely as did Galileo.

This volume is well-written, making it a delight to read. This is not only a fascinating account, but also a timely one as well. Stokes articulates well the past as a tool for our present.
