God is known by nature in his works, and by doctrine in his revealed word. – Galileo Galilei. Where the senses fail us, reason must step. Galileo shows Andrea a wooden model of the Ptolemaic astronomical system. The model shows the Earth at the center of the universe, with a series of eight crystal spheres holding the Sun, Moon, and planets. Andrea is impressed with the model but says that it feels too “shut in.” Galileo agrees, adding that more people are beginning to feel the same way, as humans discover .

By chronicling Galileo's life in the first person and utilizing his journals, the story becomes an enthralling one for readers as the conflict between science and religion escalates.
