"What surprised me, with [Robinson's] take on the possibility of two 21st century men meeting Jesus, was the utter lack of predictability.... He offers a new perspective on ripping apart the time-space continuum I am shocked no one has ever considered before now." (Round Table Reviews)
"[A] thrilling and fast-paced 'what if?' scenario." (MidWest Book Review)
"[A] rollicking adventure.... The story opens explosively and is laced with suspense and humor. Robinson writes quite well and is an up-and-coming author to watch...we'll hear, read, and see a great deal more from him in the future." (Christian Book Previews)
As a born and practicing Christian I have long felt that the Biblical images of Jesus and his followers was unrealistic. We are told "Jesus wept"; we are never told that Jesus laughed. The essence of Christ is the human/divine conjunction; yet we are not given that perspective from the establishment religions.
The author provided me an exercise in that realm for which I am deeply thankful. At times I felt the narrator was annoying - which is why I held back one star. That should not preclude anyone from enjoying this tale - I tend to be rather - - - with a couple of favored readers. This was my first journey with this one.
The title says it all. It was an ok listen until the end. I would have preferred the ending to be inconclusive, not a religious stand. Very preachy at the end.
This book was almost enjoyable. A mix of science fiction (involving time travel) and Christian evangelism, it had elements of intrigue and suspense that kept me going for awhile, even when the writing was plodding. However, the reader must increasingly continue to suspend belief to a point that I simply couldn't finish the story. Serious scenes that were meant to inspire were starting to make me laugh out loud. Incredible coincidences began to pile up. This might be a good choice for a Christian looking for something very different in the evangelism line, but not cerebral.
Yes. It was different; well explained; well thought-out; and very interesting. Even after finishing the book it kept me thinking.
None. Never read anything like it before.
The connections to religion in it were kept accurate and well-portrayed. I don't normally care for religious fiction but this was definitely worth the read.
Interesting angle for the retelling of the Jesus story. The time travel makes it fresh to our current take on history.
The death of Jesus was memorable.
This was the first. Not bad.
Enjoyed the take on history.
Intriguing, exciting, challenging.
The door into summer by Robert Heinlein. Although Heinlein's book didn't deal with the spiritual side of things, it did talk to the concept of a paradox due to time travel. I have always found the concept of time travel intriguing. Timeline is another one that I liked.
The performance was great.
Have watch will travel.
This book should not be in this category, this is religion with a tiny bit of time travel mixed in to make it into modern detective , nothing like what it professes to be, the narration is great, no dramas there.
Will not read from this author again. Quantum physics and fundamentalist religious bullshit don't mix well. I suspect the author is a young earth creationist, due to the travel to "The Flood" in the ending. The sci-fi in the book was okay, but the implausible story around what happens on their travels ruins it.
The atheist is a major straw man and I felt the book was just preaching Christianity.
Please don't recommend this book to an atheist in an attempt to convert them to Christianity.
Write up at the top
Love the way the biblical story was used And how Jeremy made it seem plausible
He is great I could listen to him endlessly
Yes and I wish it had a sequel
I would recommend this book I really enjoyed it
This books premise was very cool. I love time travel stories and this one was great as far as that went in this book. I was not thrilled about the religious lecturing about Christ throughout the book, however, if you had to pick something that you didn't think happened to travel to in time, the resurrection of Christ is huge. Setting aside all of the religious stuff, the book is solid on time travel principles making it very enjoyable from the standpoint. I gave it a three overall because I found myself zoning out as the characters interacted with Christ...sad but true.
