Out of the Silent Wardrobe Link List

Religious Ideas in Sci-Fi
As an exploratory medium, science fiction rarely takes religion at face value by simply accepting or rejecting it; when religious themes are presented, they tend to be investigated deeply.

Christian science fiction
Christian science fiction is a subgenre of both Christian literature and science fiction, in which there are strong Christian themes, or which are written from a Christian point of view. These themes may be subtle, expressed by way of analogy, or more explicit. The term is not usually applied to works simply because most or all of the characters are Christian, or simply because the author is Christian.

Christian Authors of Speculative Fiction
A Good Reads List
Authors have been listed in the table below, grouped by religious affiliation, based on their own statements in published interviews and biographies, information from the author's official website, or because they have written to us to ask to be listed on the page, and specified how and where they should be listed. An author's religious affiliation is never "assumed" or guessed at based on the religious affiliation of the characters in the author's writing or based on the themes and apparent point of view in their writing.
