Christian Science Fiction

I've just read Fifth Gospel: The Odyssey of a Time Traveler in First Century Palestine by William Roskey. It was a powerful and insightful look at what time would have been like for Jesus. Time travel and a military mission made this possible. Are there other Christian Science Fiction books you have read or would recommend? You can read up on the book here http://5thgospel.com/.
