    Against the backdrop of worldwide, unexplainable natural disasters, Dr. Virginia Marilyn Edwards (Emmy Award-winner Kerry Washington) seeks out Agent Scott Thomas (Emmy Award-winner Laurence Fishburne) at a secretive government headquarters. Virginia claims these events are signs, and unless Agent Thomas helps her, she believes things will only get worse. Her desperation is dialed up higher with a shocking proclamation as she stands before him pregnant, weak, and weary: “Agent Thomas,” she says, “I believe I am Mary.”  

    Could she be the actual Virgin Mary? Could he be Doubting Thomas, whom she must convince? And what of the two other men - Jonah and Daniel - who have somehow found their way here as well and seem to hold fresh clues to this global mystery? 

    Written by Randy McKinnon and produced by Audible, Simpson Street, and QCODE, this supernatural thriller boasts a star-studded cast that also features Critics Choice Award-winner David Oyelowo (Selma), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Asa Butterfield (Sex Education), and more. Follow the signs and take a leap of faith - before it’s too late.

It's a story

To the critical first post: it's a story. It's not real life. A made up story. It's an enjoyable read.

fantastic story line

I really wish I could respond to another review that had bad comments stating you can't rewrite history. Archeologists and historians continually rewrite history based on new discoveries, manyof which support the facts as written in the Bible. But that is not what is happening here. This is a futuristic dystopian fiction work that expands thought. Beautifully written and performed.

A little editorial research would've help a bit

Not super terrible but wow. All kind of bad errors about all kind of things.
If kind of follows like a poorly written religious story but, it's not because if a religious author wrote this, there is not way the religous stuff would be so wrong.

Really wanted to like this

The production was interesting. It felt very similar to listening to a movie. I do not usually listen to these types of audios so it was a new experience. However, I will honestly say I got lost a little when the story would jump timelines, but I was able to adjust.

The voice acting was good, but the story left much to be desired. The writing is just not what I hoped it would be. It seemed poorly researched. I really wanted to like this because the acting was superb and the premise was interesting, but the story/writing could definitely use some improvement.

Interesting but a confused story that gets mixed up

I’m not sure how I feel after listening. It’s not bad, the actors are excellent and powerful. The story… that’s the “not sure” bit. It’s a little weak. A play on The Omen. I think the idea is very good, and I get it… but the final message of the story is my confusion . It becomes a political, activists rights type thing. I think the author should have gone for the story as it started out, not add in political rights meets racism overtones.

Well and expertly played, but preachy and ridiculous

All of the cast play their parts well, but towards the conclusion it does become rather preachy and pointed. it is not the Universe that devalues black women and black lives, it is white people, you know, other ignorant semi-evolved primates.
It is also rather religious, so at lesst you know it is fictional. Well worth a listen, though.

A Black take on fantasy

A contemporary black Virgin Mary faces supernatural forces trying to prevent the Son of God's birth. In this fantasy the Bible is a prophecy of what will happen, so Jonah and Daniel and Moses are living their stories now. I couldn't stop listening-- great performers made it compelling.

So disappointing!!!

We don't need more bible mumbo in this world. I'm just balancing all the other 5 star reviews saying this is the best from the trailer alone.
