is a prevailing myth that science fact and religious belief are
incompatible, although most proponents consider as fact things that
are as yet unproven theory and many scientists find their research
confirms, rather than destroys, their faith.
With this in mind, Francis Isadore Electronic Press presents
Leaps of Faith, an anthology of Christian, science fiction
stories. Most of the authors here are Catholic, so questions are
explored from the Catholic point of view, but most apply to all
points of view in the Christian faith. How will the aliens accept
it? Better yet, will we be allowed to take it with us into space?
Many of these stories speculate on what will happen when Christians
explore beyond our world.
are several scenarios here, from an alien trying to bring the faith
to his world, the acceptance of AI androids into the church, the
murder of the faithful by the ungodly and the use of one’s
faith to bring about a miracle with the aid of technology. The possibilities
are legion, but in all of them, known science facts are presented
accurately. They are also realistic, in that all of the endings
do not culminate on a miracle from God that comes about without
human and technological aid.
this book quite interesting. Though I am not of the Catholic persuasion,
I am a Christian. I agree that science and Christianity do go together.
I would like to see more issues explored in this manner. I highly
recommend this book. It not only entertains, it makes you think.
