Alan Gregory, Science Fiction Theology: Beauty and the Transformation of the Sublime, Baylor University Press, 2015.

“To the extent that science fiction has appropriated ― and reveled ― in the sublime, it has persisted in a sometimes explicit, sometimes subterranean, relationship with Christian theology. From its seventeenth-century beginnings, the sublime, with its representations of immensity, has informed the imagining of God. When science fiction critiques or reinvents religion, its writers have engaged in a literary guerrilla war with Christianity over what is truly sublime and divine.”
