Neil Culbertson5 Stars Out Of 5November 29, 2007Neil Culbertson"The Gospel According to Science Fiction" is an excellent analysis of the history and major themes of Science Fiction with apt comparisons with the major themes of the Christian Faith. Biblical themes are compared and contrasted with intelligence, yet I found the entire discussion clearly and compellingly written. McKee holds the reader's interest throughout and convinces us in many ways why the medium of science fiction is something that a Christian should seriously grapple with. McKee surprises by going back as far as Plato and other ancient writers to show that the impulse toward "sci fi" goes way, way back. Never dry or dull, McKee brings past and present together and shows us that what man most deeply longs for, and expresses even in sci fi, is ultimately answered in the Christian Faith. If you're just looking for an interesting read, or another way to gain perspective on a topic with which to engage people in discussion on an area that is compelling for many, this is an excellent book to read. I just preached a trilogy which I gave the same title and was thoroughly delighted to find this book giving more detailed scrutiny of themes I'd only initially developed.
