Christian The Gospel According To Science

Christian The Gospel According To Science FictionPaperback: 111 pagesProduct Description"As conventional wisdom would have it, science and religion are opposing forces, struggling for influence over our minds, our souls, and our public finding dollars. On the other hand we have science, alternately described as either the quest for truth amidst ancient superstitions, or the cold, soulless attempt to turn human beings into gods. On the other hand is faith; the core beliefs that give our lives meaning, or the illusions that hold us back from fulfilling our potential..."But what if the distinction between science and religion is wrong? What if the apparent tension between faith and reason is simply an illusion created by a few overzealous believers on both sides who hope that one will eliminate the other? What if science fiction, instead of simply being the cool, rationalistic prediction of things to come, is something more primal, more spiritual---the religious texts of the future?"-from the introductionIn this thorough and engaging book, the author explores the inherent theological nature of science fiction, using illustrations from television shows, literature, and films. Science fiction, he believes, helps us understand not only who we are but who we will become. It can teach us more about how to think of God and can help us keep our beliefs alive in a world of rapidly changing technology. Indeed, the author argues, science fiction can help forge the faith of the future.
