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 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)
Jesus knows all!
Nothing! It's that good! Makes you think!
Yea most any book I find that he's telling I download .
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.
So, this is basically the story of Jesus from the last three years of his ministry to just after the crucifixion. It throws in time travel as a twist on that story, but that's not enough to save it. If you want that story, get it from the Bible, where it's told a whole lot better. This story is predictable, the characters are flat, and the token atheist a very poor example of the breed thrown up as a straw man to be shot down without the trouble of any real thought or examination of the issues.
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 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.
This is the best piece of Christian Sci Fi I have ever read! I enjoyed every minute.
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 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.
