What's Christian about Star Trek? Nothing. That's the way most people see it and that certainly seems to be the way the franchise is intended. There's no question that the Trek universe is based on a doggedly humanistic worldview and is set in a future time when religion has essentially vanished from Earth. If that's the case, how can there even be a Gospel According to Star Trek? In The Gospel According to Star Trek, you'll discover how the continuing voyages of Kirk and company aboard the Enterprise - from the Original Series to Star Trek Beyond - tell us more about our human quest for God than you ever imagined. You'll learn how Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's own spiritual quest informed the franchise, what he and the series really have to say about God and religion, and the amazing image of Christ contained in Star Trek's most popular character. You'll also see how Star Trek can help us recover a deeper, more fully human gospel that embraces our humanity instead of denigrating it and echoes the call of both Spock and Christ: 'Live long and prosper!' (John 10:10).

You hold in your hands a treasure. So don't read this endorsement; instead, read this book, which we are fortunate to have. The proof of this endorsement is to be found in reading Kevin's book. The 'eyes of your heart' may be opened too. DAVID NAUGLE, Distinguished University Professor, Dallas Baptist University; author of Worldview: The History of a Concept Don't be scared off by the title, Trek fans. Whether Christian, pagan, atheist, or any other corner on the global 'higher power' scale, you'll find plenty of new insights into 'the human adventure' amid the dots Kevin C. Neece connects in The Gospel According to Star Trek: The Original Crew. Kevin looks at Star Trek's love/hate relationship with paradises, god-things, baby-steps humanity, alien deities, and even the wacky implications of the animated series, and finds something to intrigue everyone. LARRY NEMECEK, Author, Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library; Founder, Trekland's Portal 47 If you thought there was little Christians could learn from Star Trek, Kevin C. Neece will show you another way into a rich theological frontier in the Star Trek universe. This book is not only helpful for seeing connections between Christian faith and Star Trek but also a great example of faithful engagement with culture.
