Captain Hart opens the story of The Man with a bewildering question: He and his crew have landed on a far away planet, whose inhabitants barely notice their arrival. There are no welcoming crowds to meet them. Why?
Ray Bradbury had this story, The Man, published when he was about 28 years old. Having been raised with some Christian influence in his life, this is one of those stories whose central character is undoubtedly Jesus Christ. And it is very interesting that the fundamental belief in Christianity, that Christ is the one that does the work of salvation and not the hurried and frantic work of the person himself would, in a subtle but surprising way, surface in the telling of this story.
