"Not in the Spaces we Know"

An Exploration of Science Fiction and the Bible
Edited by Frauke Uhlenbruch; In Collaboration With Anna Angelini & Anne-Sophie Augier
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0694-9
This volume explores themes at the intersection of the Bible and science fiction. In the genre of science fiction in film, books, comic books, or fan fiction, we find portrayals of possible futures, altered pasts, supernatural or beyond-human beings. Just as in biblical literature, science fiction can contain metaphysical speculation. Departing from this intersection, the authors engage with biblical texts 'as' science fiction, asking different questions of their sources: can science fiction theory and practice yield new approaches to the discussion of biblical texts? The authors reflect on methodology and offer case studies that include, among others, superhuman biblical kings and uncanny divine intermediaries.
