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.

    "Sceptical walking in, walked out a believer"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, and have already passed this on to my sons to enjoy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    A draw between David and Tom (tho Lazarus was a lot of fun as well). I related myself to David, I could understand his lack of faith at times even in the light of what was in front of him

    "Loved It!!"

    I think every one has thought about what it would be like to ge back in time. This reminds me of my own hidden desires to go back. Jeremy chooses an event and then creates what you would have experianced it, if you were really present. Jesus as a normal guy, with little pranks and indepth descussions. I was very impressed the whole concept of the book.

    "Good idea, average execution"
    Would you try another book from Jeremy Robinson and/or R. C. Bray?

    The author - yes, the reader probably not - not a pleasant reading voice or style


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It needs to be significantly longer for better character development and to provide a lot more depth to the technology and to the biblical subject matter.


    Would you be willing to try another one of R. C. Bray’s performances?

    I would likely try to avoid another one by Mr. Bray - personally I find his voice to be rasping and not pleasant for extended listening


    Could you see The Didymus Contingency being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes definitely. The story is shallow, poor character development and a little ridiculous - perfect for a TV series or movie!


    Any additional comments?

    The idea is excellent and there is a huge amount of scope for a really detailed and unusual novel. The shallow style is not appropriate for such a good ideas.

    "Excellent"
    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bray does a fantastic job, at some points it was quite freaky and that just made it even more enjoyable. I utilised the whispersync for voice for the first time with this book and you really notice the difference between reading and listening.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was interesting, fun and at times a little freaky. Which let's face it, is what Jeremy Robinson does best. I didn't really know what to expect from this book but having heard a lot of positive things about it thought it was high time I gave it a go. I can see why the book got so many positive comments and why so many people consider it to be one of Robinson's best work to date. It really grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the final page.

    "Fascinating and Inspirational"

    Jeremy Robinson has become one of my favorite authors and Bray does a wonderful reading of the book with rich accents and great emotion. There are so many twists and turns in this book. I thought I had it all figured out and then something happened to take me in a new direction. I know this will be a book that I will go back to time and again and I really hope there is a sequel or two coming in the future - or the past. :-)

    I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.

    "Not what I expected at all."

    Reading the description for the book I thought this would be another book preaching the Christian religion and trying to get everyone on the path to God but I was pleasantly surprised. I try to stay away from Spoliers in my reviews so I'll just say that our protaganists and their interaction with people in the past was a lot of fun. I found myself laughing at many points in the book. I am not a strictly devout Roman Catholic but I was raised in the faith so although my recollection of every story in the bible isn't near perfect I was able to remember enough to really enjoy the different events Tom and David encountered. My foreknowledge so to speak, did not ruin parts for me but instead enhanced the story I think.

    On to the elephant in the room. Will a strict atheist enjoy the book? I have to say they might not. A very lage part of the core of this book takes for granted that Christianity is correct. I can't say more without offering up Spoilers so that is all I can say about that. I think that in order to really enjoy this book you must at least believe that a higher power just might exist. If you can not at least concede that point then sure, you might enjoy the book simply for its fictional storytelling value, but I think that you might not enjoy this book.

    "I really enjoyed this book!"

    I am such a sucker for time travel but this book does it really well! It covered all my logical questions about not only time travel but what it might be like for a modern man to travel back 2000 years and try to survive without screwing up the past.

    The reader was excellent and conveyed the attitude of the characters quite well.

    It was a fantastic premise and carried off quite well. Bravo!
