Aliens Saved My Religion

As I was looking for images that could serve as prototypes or inspiration for the cover design for my forthcoming book, Theology and Science Fiction, I discovered a book title that was proposed but not used by another author. Tony Kriz shared on his blog that his book Neighbors and Wise Men: Sacred Encounters in a Portland Pub and Other Unexpected Places was almost given the title Aliens Saved My Religion: How Religious Foreigners (Muslims, Atheists and Drunkards) Taught me the True Gospel of Jesus.

I actually have a section of my book that relates the Bible’s verses about “aliens” (meaning “foreigners”) to the science fictional sense of that term, since in turn many sci-fi stories about aliens are in fact attempts to say something about how we relate to the “aliens” who are from and on our own planet.
