It's been some years since I read it, but when you said "modern" I immediately thought of The Circle series by Ted Dekker. It's a 4 novel series about a man being shot and waking up in a strange fantasy world. Now, every time he goes to sleep, his consciousness swaps between the modern world and this fantasy world. He starts to question what is real, what is a dream, who he is, good vs evil; all while attempting to stop a terrorist in the "real" world.
I know there are other series that share the world and possibly some characters, but I haven't read them yet myself.
Also, Dekker is technically a "Christian" writer, but at least for The Circle, it's more allegorical than in your face. Really just asking questions about good vs. evil.
