We see The Sci-Fi Christian, in all its iterations, as being about the collision between faith and nerdom. We believe that good genre fiction is about more than just entertainment. We seek to engage with the themes and philosophies behind our favorite stories, wrestling with the big ideas within speculative fiction. We’re unabashedly nerdy and unabashedly Christian. Even if your faith background differs from ours, we look forward to interacting with you at The Sci-Fi Christian!

Author Mark O'Connell joins me to discuss his new book Watching Skies: Star Wars, Spielberg and Us. We cover our journey through Science Fiction via the lens of kids growing up in the '80s obsessed with Star Wars, Indiana Jones and action figures. We also discuss the impact filmmakers like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg had on modern cinema.
