Well, Orson Scott Card's kind of notorious for a reason. And C.S. Lewis was IIRC a convert* who was deliberately writing faith-based allegory and parables.

I personally find overtly religious stuff in sf/fantasy/other speculative to be the exception, rather than the rule.

* I forget whether it was Tolkien who converted him from agnoticism to Christianity or the other way around.
