Publisher's Summary

If you could go back in time...and witness any event...where would you go?

When Dr. Tom Greenbaum faces that question after successfully discovering the secret to time travel, he knows the time, place, and event he will witness: the death and failed resurrection of Jesus Christ. Dr. David Goodman, Tom's colleague and closest friend follows Tom into the past, attempting to avert a time-space catastrophe, but forces beyond their control toss them into a dangerous end game where they are tempted by evil characters, betrayed by friends, pursued by an assassin from the future, and haunted by a demon that cannot be killed.

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)

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "You Have To Read It !!"

    This story, The Didymus Contingency , is the most perfect book I've listened to. It's hard to characterize though. It has time travel, frienship , and religion. The only people I can see not liking it are devout Christians who wouldn't approve of the subject matter. My husband, who is the most perfect example of the good samaritan, has listened to it four times.

    The premise of the book is so intersesting. Two men one a devout Christian, the other an atheist, . Have invented a very reliable time travel apparatus . They mutually agree to travel to Nazareth in the days preceding Jesus's crucification. It was true to the Bible, though I doubt the order of events. It includes all the best known events Jesus's life as written in the Bible.

    Summing up, I loved this book because it so humanizes Jesus. It helped me to realize Jesus was a flesh and blood man with all the traits we share. He was kind and funny, even though the son of god ,and the savior of Christians. I recomend this book for anyone who is open minded enough, to read this book. It is very educational and always interesting. For example the two time travelers travel back to eat at their favorite barbecue resteraunt .

    Story
    "Gave up"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The premise was solid - what if you could go back and witness a moment in time. Okay, Jesus resurrection is compelling. The execution was trash. I am fine not knowing how they developed time travel, but they go back 3 years before the day of the resurrection. They can hop back and forth, yet they never JUST GO TO THAT POINT in time. Seemed silly.


    What could Jeremy Robinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The dialog was just average. The whole story could have been tightened up. I eventually just stopped listening. I don't know how the book ended; and sadly, I just don't care.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of R. C. Bray?

    James Marsters


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom

    "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.
