The Religion of Science Fiction
Frederick A. Kreuziger

Popular Press

Science fiction captures contemporary sentiment with its faith in a scientific/technological future, its explorations of the ultimate meaning of man's existence. Kreuziger is interested particularly in the apocalyptic visions of science fiction compared to the biblical revelations of John and Daniel. For some time our confidence has been placed largely in science, which has practically become a religion. Science fiction articulates the consequences of a faith in a technological future.
