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!

Excellent!

This is one of the very first podcasts I ever listened to. I had searched for something Christian and sci-fi figuring there’d be nothing out there. There was, and I’ve been listening ever since. Love it!

Fun, entertaining, & thought provoking

Matt and Ben have an interesting chemistry and always bring interesting thoughts and news about the sci-fi world. They theology/philosophy adds an interesting twist at times. Solid.

Fantastic Show!

I can’t get enough, this show manages to be both fun and thought-provoking at the same time! Thanks, SciFi Christian.
