Future earth has forgotten God. Science and technology reign supreme. A benevolent government banishes hunger, poverty, and disease and provides a luxurious lifestyle for an ever-increasing population. However, even science has its limits, and the world faces a crisis of diminishing resources.Dr. Deborah Tennyson, a brilliant mathematician, devises the only answer for mankind: Discover new resources through the Interdimensional Transport Protocol (ITP). A brash, self-centered, but remarkably talented astropilot, Major David Sanders, takes the responsibility of making the first ITP flight and determining the fate of the earth. Will he find the fame he so desperately craves or much more? Sanders' journey through interdimensional space takes him to a world he could never imagine and a spiritual destiny he could never expect.

This can only be loosely described as science fiction. Sure the setting is the future. But this is really a treatise of Christian believe using science fiction themes to create some "reason" for the belief in a god.
While I am sure this has an audience among Christians, and while it might be a genre interest to scifi readers, its fun making of skeptics and those whole don't believe in religion is a bore.
"Future Hope" is Book One of the ITP series of books by David Gelber. This science-fiction novel begins with General Moosewood, Chairman of the ITP.
This book is very well written and there is a little bit of everything for everyone, romance, gambling, politics and corruption, demons, new technology, space travel and God. You will like it regardless of religious preferences, just let the author take you through his wonderful imaginary world. If you like SCI-FI. you will like this book.
It's the year 2156 and humanity is not the same. Dr. Tennyson has found the formula for Interdimensional Transport Protocol (ITP).
The first solo mission is being lead by pilot David Sanders and the hope that he will enter one portal then exit through a different portal a few minutes later and find he is several light years away. This will give humanity the ability to explore the universe and gather the supplies to sustain an ever growing population. Everything seems to be going fine when Major Sanders takes flight. He's so happy about the doors that this stint will open for him. Little did he know, he was about to get stranded. Things don't go as planned and David never exits. This leads to an investigation back on Earth by a corrupt Senator who wants the entire program shut down. Meanwhile, David has crashed on a mysterious planet that will start him on a journey that will cause him to question the direction of life back on Earth as well as the decision of mankind to turn their back on their creator. This book has it all - drama, danger, the thrill. The next book in the series is "Joshua and Aaron" be sure to look for it.
This book was sent to me by the Author for me to review.
So is interdimensional space exploration the next step? Dr. Deborah Tennyson, a brilliant mathematician, certainly thinks so and she is willing to send the best astropilot, David Sanders, to test it out. The first space flight proved successful as a dog named Little Bit was transported and returned relatively unscathed.
But will David Sanders succeed? He is an excellent astropilot, but he's going into the unknown and what he finds changes his belief in God and mankind.
Senator Adrian Leavitt wanted the Interdimensional Travel Program to fail and would try anything to stop it from happening. Will he shut down the mission before David Sanders can return?
This is an interesting blend of science fiction and Christian fiction. The interconnection is brilliant and Dr. Gelber takes you on a thrilling ride into the universe and beyond.
A warm thank you to Dr. Gelber and PR by the Book for giving me the opportunity to review this book.
Dr. Deborah Tennyson may have the answer to Earth's problems in her discovery of the Interdimensional Transport Protocol, or ITP. The first solo manned mission is being lead by astropilot David Sanders and the hope is that he will enter one portal then exit through a different portal a few minutes later and be several light years away. Things don't go as planned and David never exits. This leads to an investigation back on Earth by a corrupt Senator who wants the entire program shut down. Meanwhile, David has crashed on a mysterious planet that will start him on a journey that will cause him to question the direction of life back on Earth as well as the decision of mankind to turn their back on their creator.
I found this book to be very well-written and full of imagination. David Gelber paints a picture of a future Earth that is as interesting as it is thought provoking. The story does occasionally get bogged down by the scientific explanations of the ITP but that didn't stop me from turning the page and I had an extremely hard time putting the book down. This book promises to be the first in a series and, if this is true, I look forward to seeing where the story goes next!
