What the Critics Say

"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)

    "This book is a must !"
    If you could sum up The Didymus Contingency in three words, what would they be?

    Jesus knows all!


    What other book might you compare The Didymus Contingency to and why?

    Nothing! It's that good! Makes you think!


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yea most any book I find that he's telling I download .


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I actually did believe it or not and I have re listened to it 3 more times science and every time I find something's new I missed and this is one book that had me crying every read.

    "Fascinating tour of Jesus ministry"

    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 end ruined book"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I didn't want it to end"

    This book is a "page turner" from beginning to end. The narrator varies his voice just enough to bring the characters to life without distracting from the story. The author's perspective on time travel and Jesus Christ came through clearly with enough detail to place me in the scenes with the characters. Love this book.

    "Excellent read!"

    One of the best from the Origins series. Jeremy Robinson never disappoints. R.C Bray delivers an excellent performance.

    "Best by far"

    I haven't read a lot of Mr. Robinson's books, but I consider the his best work - by a long shot. The story is tightly woven, the science (fiction) believable and apparently free from many of the usual paradox errors, the grammar is excellent and the characters developed to an understandable and empathetic level. The narrator of the audio version is also one of the best I've heard: clear even tones, great cadence, and convincingly pulls off portraying a multiple personality that sounds so real it makes chills run up the spine. Mr. Robinson brings religion into all the books I've read so far, sometimes almost seeming to stretch to get it into the story and provide some preaching. But this story doesn't do any of that and, frankly, doesn't need to as it all fits naturally into the tale. Not everyone will necessarily
    Like the idea, but the story telling is first rate - and kudos to the narrator.

    "Interesting Concept"
    Any additional comments?

    Interesting story of time travel, which always makes my head spin. My biggest problem with the book is that one of the protagonists, although Israeli and grew up in the Jewish faith, has become an avowed atheist. He is a brilliant scientist married to a devout Christian and has absolutely no knowledge of the New Testament of the Bible. For example, something simple as knowing who Lazarus was, I would expect a scientist to have a clue. And surely he would have heard of Jesus walking on water. And the excuses he comes up with to explain away Jesus's miracles make no sense, and are lame reasons, coming, again, from an intelligent man who created a way to time travel.

    "Interesting twist "

    I really enjoyed this action adventure syfi meets religious story of doubting Thomas.. It certainly does leave one wondering how far did Thomas go with doubts on Jesus being the Christ. But I obviously don't believe he was a time traveler who came from the future to live in the past. Still great book. Enjoyable
