#40 - What Can Galileo Teach Us Today?

February 11, 2020

What can Galileo teach us today?  Many of us know the name Galileo.  But few know what he did, the context which he operated in, and the problematic headwinds that he faced in trying to overcome centuries of tradition, theological assumptions and constructs in the church when it came to some of his scientific discoveries.  Learn more about the man Galileo, the difficulty in his heresy trial, and the lessons that we can learn and apply in our context of faith and science...

Also, I'm indebted to the great biographer Michael White for his indispensable book on Galileo and his work, "Galileo: The AntiChrist."  For a more in depth study on Galileo I highly recommend his work which I've linked here.
