Religious SF

I'm interested in science-fiction written from a Christian perspective, but here's a website about Judaism in SF and here's another about Islam in SF.

"A Canticle for Liebowitz" by Walter J Miller is one of the best

followed by

"A case of Conscience" by James Blish

C.S. Lewis' "Space Trilogy" is incredible.

I just re-read Perelandra, and it is quite good. But Lewis's space trilogy is just barely science-fiction; it's more like fantasy set in space.

The Dune novels are a great exploration of the nature of religion, but they're not exactly from a Christian perspective. Michael Flynn's Eifelheim is outstanding. Gene Wolfe is considered by many to be one of the top English-language writers alive today, and he writes science-fiction that is often informed by his Christian faith. There's a lot more.
