Christian Sci-Fi Night is Author's Ministry Minnesota Author/Professor Jason William Karpf Combines Christianity and Science Fiction in Outreach, From Teens to Seniors Ask a roomful of Christians: “How many of you like the Marvel Cinematic Universe?” “How many are Star Wars fans?” Hands go up, from teens to seniors. Sheepish grins turn confident with the revelation: “Scripture and science fiction teach the same lesson. Playing God leads to trouble.” Minnesota author Jason William Karpf leads “Christian Sci-Fi Night with Professor K,” a live watch party of classic and current science fiction, discussed from a Christian perspective. He writes Christian sci-fi, a subgenre that blends tropes like futuristic tech, time travel, and space adventure with godly themes and characters who actively practice their faith. Karpf also seeks biblical truths in secular sci-fi, which inspired him to create “Christian Sci-Fi Night” for churches, Christian schools, and bible study groups. “The Church talks about meeting people where they are—physically, culturally, emotionally,” Karpf says. “Fifty years ago, musicians like Larry Norman brought a generation to Jesus by integrating the rock and pop they loved into Christian music. I’m taking a similar approach by combining science fiction with a Christian worldview.” Karpf brings diverse skills and experiences to “Christian Sci-Fi Night”: professor at Christian universities, child actor on vintage TV shows like “Bonanza,” four-time Jeopardy champ. His published works include novels The Deliverer and Brimstone 1 and the short story “Basilica Obscura,” a Realm Award finalist. Jason William Karpf is available for interviews about his ministry,
