    This book is typically classified as Science Fiction, however, Abbott is a theological scholar, and was writing and publishing this book in an 1880s religiously repressed Europe. He was attempting to introduce some new ideas about spirituality and religion, but knew that he had to present these very liberal spiritual ideas in a format that would not alarm religious critics, staunch Catholics. Hence, he framed his writings in a Science Fiction venue. But, the book is way ahead of the time that he lived and wrote.
