"Religion and Science Fiction is a blessing to scholars and science fiction fans alike. The ideas engaged by each author – from postmodern post-apocalypticism to dime store heroes and space-faring robots – challenge our assumptions about culture, intellectual life, and even the very essence of what it means to be human. The authors use science fiction to explore religion and religion to elucidate science fiction; this combination gives us a richer understanding of both."
Robert M. Geraci, author of Apocalyptic AI: Visions of Heaven in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality
"The editor succeeds in presenting a treatment in which diverse topics are taken into account."

Simon Locke, in Journal of Contemporary Religion, Vol 28, Issue 3

"Religion and Science Fiction will be of interested to a wide variety of individuals. Students, instructors and general readers in areas such as film studies, literature, history, philosophy, religious studies and cultural studies will find this an interesting and informative collection. It will also be of interest to fans of a variety of science fiction shows, movies, and books. I commend it to each and every one."
