Time travel without zombies or vampires?

Mario Diana, Out of Time, book Plano Texas

Science fiction and Christian values are sometimes considered at odds, but a growing number of readers today choose entertainment options in which language and situations align with their beliefs.

With this audience in mind, the book Out of Time blends the wonders of time travel with Christian-inspired fiction. By entertaining its readers with a mixture of history and futurism, art and science, archeology and faith, this unique novel weaves a story through the past and the present of Venice that is filled with historical and scientific trivia.

The adventures of four unknowing thieves and a time traveling reluctant hero bring to light the dangers of modern trends in reproductive medicine and genetics. It’s a chase through poisoned gas and horrific weapons from the Italian renaissance to a startling finish in the hills of Tuscany that leaves readers wanting more.


Author Mario Diana, Plano Texas

During two decades in the practice of surgery on both sides of the Atlantic, Dr. Diana witnessed first hand the full spectrum of human pain, compassion and healing but also resilience and determination, inspiring love and courage that fill the characters of his stories.

Arising from his study of genetics and literary roots in the art and mystery of the ancient Sardinia, his writing reflects a boundless spirit of adventure, love and respect for nature and deep understanding of our Creator’s message as delivered to us through science and technology.
