Reternity by Neal Wooten
Reternity is the tale of Max, the esteemed (and only) child of Reverend and Mrs. Maxwell, a simple but hardworking family in the American Midwest who love their son. But their hearts are heavy with trepidation as he embarks on the next chapter of his life: university, and worry about the effects of such a liberal environment on his Christian values. Their fears deepen as he cultivates his academic abilities outside of his planned seminary by enrolling in the campus-renowned class of Professor Nowak, a science teacher who proffers each semester the Near Impossible Assignment to anyone willing and brave enough to accept the challenge, for bonus points of course. Ready to put his intellect on the line, Max thrusts himself right into the scientific puzzle, and he serendipitously discovers something that even bemuses the professor himself, an invention that could change the world. But can Max push forth with his scientific investigation without alienating those he loves or compromising his Christian values? The professor and Max both embark on a quest whose destination no one around them could possibly have seen coming...
