The events surrounding the life of Galileo are a watershed in the debate about science and the Bible. This two-hour NOVA special explores Galileo's efforts to convince the Church to distinguish between the words of the Bible and interpretations of the Bible. The program provides some intriguing parallels to what Christians face today in debates about the age of the earth. It also presents an example of how information from the record of nature can sometimes correct our interpretations of the Bible.
