Summary :

A Jesuit chief astrophysicist on a starship, traveling with a fundamentally secular crew of scientists and officers, is on a mission to research a distant supernova remnant. The priest and the crew have bantered good-naturedly about science and religion and the continuing debate between the two about the nature of the universe. But what they find on a tiny distant scorched planet circling the ruins of the star will shake the foundations of the priest's faith to its very core.
