Science Fiction, fantasy and Faith

madeleine-lengle-a-wrinkle-in-timeI’ve never written SF myself, but I’ve always seen something ‘spiritual’ in its exploration of mankind’s inner and outer worlds. In fact, SF and fantasy are one of the last realms open to Christian writers to present an ‘alternative’ world view. You have to go no further than Tolkien and CS Lewis to see how issues of faith can be explored through these most speculative of genres. And in more recent years Madeleine L’Engle and GP Taylor. I was sad to hear that Madeleine, author of the classic book A Wrinkle in Time, passed away recently, a few weeks before her 89th Birthday. She will be missed.
