This question already has an answer here:
I hope somebody can help me with this.
I read this book like 15 years ago which places it before the year 2000.
The main plot of the book is that 2 universes (ours and another one?) are "colliding"
Some humans are taken by alien "engineers" (I think that was their name) to their world in order to help to find a solution to the collision problem.
