The deeply Catholic Bernanos offers a haunting picture of the isolation that religious faith can bring, as an idealistic young priest encounters mockery and indifference from those to whom he attempts to love. Meanwhile, the agnostic Blish dramatizes the uneasy relationship between religion and science, as a seemingly sinless alien race pose ethical problems for a future humanity.
