Summary

What would you do if, through an unexpected twist of fate and time, you came face to face with Jesus of Nazareth? In the flesh. A living, breathing, three-dimensional figure with a disconcertingly casual manner. When you had pinched yourself to make sure that you weren't dreaming and found that he was still there, would you turn your back and walk away - or would you try to find out what he was doing so far from home?
That was the decision facing Leo Resnick, a smart young Manhattan lawyer, and his girlfriend, Dr Miriam Maxwell. Mission is Leo's record of his encounter with The Man. If you've ever looked up at the stars and wondered what it all means, this is the audiobook you've been waiting for. Mission is the nearest you'll get to the Secret of the Universe this side of the Apocalypse.
Patrick Tilley spent his formative years in the counties of Northumbria and Cumbria. He studied art at King's College, Durham, and worked as a graphic designer. He began writing episodes for a TV series and went on to become scriptwriter and creative advisor on several major films before writing Fade-Out, his first novel.

So this is what the bible really means...

Would you listen to Mission again? Why?

Yes, because the story is very rich, and, I would like to go back to the New Testament (and Old) to check some of the amazing facts, thoughts and concepts

What other book might you compare Mission to and why?

Unlike any other, except perhaps segments of the Bible

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, too deep to listen to at one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth a second or third read.

An Unexpected Detour

What did you love best about Mission?

So much of it was simply wonderful. I suppose the time travel paradox. Those always get me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Leo, His growth emotionally and spiritually were amazing.

Which scene was your favorite?

Almost the end of the book, where "The Man" says goodbye to Leo

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. The things that "The Man" said to Leo when he said goodbye to him.

Any additional comments?

If you are a devout Christian, this book might offend you. I personally think it is a great story. It is a combination of Spirituality, and Science Fiction, and some great historical research. As a matter of fact the research the writer did on this book was outstanding. It is a book that while fiction, is capable of helping you understand a spiritual principle or two. It did for me.

It is worth the time and the credit as well. I loved it!
