"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the Back Cover
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.
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.
Little does he know, he will find far greater things. Happiness, joy, a new life, new people, and a place called Eden. He is happy where he is. It is a true paradise. However, things take a turn for the worst and he must return to Earth. He has lived a lifetime in a very short period of our time. But he has a greater purpose. He must teach. He must make others learn the lessons he has learned, the truths that were missing, and the fact that it is not yet too late to change.
This book is about much more than space. It's about a search for ourselves and for something greater than ourselves. It's about life and living and acknowledging that maybe there is a God in a time when no one believes.
I have always been a fan of sci-fi, but this book surprised me. Space is vast, but so is our potential. I felt as though this book could be talking about us now. We think we're so self-sufficient, but are we really? Are we so self-destructive that we've forgotten our roots - our most basic foundation?
I found this to be an unexpectedly thought-provoking book. At face value it's one thing, but reading deeper it's a warning and a lesson. It's not so much about religion as it is finding our own truth. It's not preachy - which I appreciated.
This book has it all - drama, danger, the thrill. This is book one of what hopefully will be more books. I look forward to reading more about the continuing saga about mankind and the dangers faced.
Dr. Deborah Tennyson works for ITP. She is also Major Sander's lover. When Major Sanders disappears into orbit, she tries to come up with a way to locate and bring him home. How much longer can the people of Earth rely on their own ways before they are willing to accept someone bigger than them and look to a future of hope and new beginnings?
Future Hope is book one of the ITP series. To be honest I thought this book sounded good but I had my reserves about it. This is because this type of book is out of my normal reading genres. To my surprise, I actually liked this book. I could see where the author was going with this book. This story while it took place in the future, kind of hit on things that were happening in the real world at the present time. I knew who the creator was in this book and I thought Mr. Gelber did a good job keeping the lines between being too religious and stating the facts. While I did like this book, I thought the scenes where Major Sanders was involved were more interesting than what was happening in the rest of the book. I kind of skimmed over the rest of the parts that didn't feature Major Sanders. For someone looking to break out of their normal genre, then you should give Future Hope a try.
