One thought on “Religion and Science Fiction”

  1. Welllll, this was something of a disappointment. There are a few good essays, notably Eriberto Lozada's speculative but interesting exploration of how scientific thinking and SF might have been influential in China, but even here the book's recurring and besetting limitation comes into play: he just doesn't have that much to say about SF.

  2. In his introduction, “Religion and Science Fiction,” editor James McGrath comments on the need for a less fragmented approach to the connections between religion and science fiction. This collection of sophisticated essays offers a widely varied survey of such potential approaches. As McGrath introduces the various essays, he mentions such important overlap between science fiction narratives and religious concerns such as cosmology in apocalyptic literature; portrayals of the future as a sta [...]

  3. Here's what I have to say:1. "Just because you use big words it doesn't mean that your assumed representations and supposed allegories are not ridiculously far-fetched."AND 2. "This is why I wasn't an English major." Gains some interesting tidbits of SciFi knowledge, but what a mire I had to drudge through to gain them.

  4. As with many books of essays, very uneven. Some were poorly-organized and from a very Christian perspective, but most were interesting and informative.

  5. Interesting read although a bit uneven. If readers are not familiar with the works mentioned it can be a little tricky to follow, but still worth the time.
