Stunning Collision of Biblical History & Science Fiction,
This review is from: The Didymus Contingency (Paperback)
Whether you find yourself a believer of the Christian Bible or not, author Jeremy Robinson has crafted a sci-fi thriller that any history or sci-fi enthusiast will love. He has created a character, a quantum physicist named Tom, who has the brains, the ability and the resources to use science in creating a way to travel in time.
Through a series of events, he also has a strong, personal motive to travel back to the time of Jesus of Nazareth for one purpose: to prove the man is a fake. But when he meets Jesus, he is surprised at how "human" this so-called deity really is. The author paints a refreshing picture of the historical Jesus through his novel that makes you reconsider your own view of the man.
Where the author's skills shine and where the books develops its paged-turning, hard-to-put-down quality is in the way the author creates his fiction in a way that's true to the historical texts he uses as a reference. Each section is filled with dangers from the current timeline as well as dangers from the first century. Through it all, Tom continues to the bitter end in proving that his friend, which Jesus becomes to him, is, indeed, a fake. The scientist in him forces him to seek the truth in spite of his feelings.
Through the well-crafted words of a fast-paced thriller, the author takes you on a journey of one man's personal pursuit for the truth, regardless of what history, and his closest friends may think. This is one journey you will be glad you took with Tom.
