A few years ago I borrowed the DVD of the 1951 sci-fi classic movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" from my local library and watched it with my kids. Now a remake is on its way.
This article from First Things was an interesting read. Science fiction seems to be one area where authors muse without fear of marginalization about the nature and possibility of the supernatural. I am currently reading Francis Schaeffer's "Escape from Reason" with a group of guys. I wonder how Schaeffer would deal with science fiction.
