Finding God in Sci-Fi Spirituality

Finding God in Sci-Fi Spirituality

Hold onto the redemptive myth of God.

Overview

Science fiction, with its complex mythologies and exploration of meaning in human life, produces some of the most compelling stories in pop culture. A renaissance in accessible sci-fi on television and in movies has more people than ever asking the big questions about what it means to be a human living on this earth. We can rejoice that these stories are leading people to ask big questions, but we must remember to point to the ultimate truth found in God's story.
