Critic reviews

"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)

Twisty-turny timey-wimey story

This was a highly entertaining time travel book. The mixture of fact and fiction was refreshing and I enjoyed the whole thing.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story and its narration.

Taking subjects that have been written about many times before but giving them a fresh & interesting twist that will keep you listening. The characters were well developed so you start to care what happens to them.

The narrator has a very clear and 'easy on the ear' voice and does well to give each character a separate tone which obviously makes the story a lot easier to follow.

Already looking forward to listening to book 2 in the J. Robinson Origins series. 👍

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.

Wanna go back in time to hang out with Jesus?

STORY (time travel) - Okay. So there's two guys who are best friends. They're quantum physicists and have created a time-travel machine. One believes in God (David) and one doesn't (Tom). In a nutshell, they go back in time so that David can prove to Tom that God exists. The proof will be simply that Jesus either does or does not rise again after being crucified on the cross. The story goes back and forth between present day and BC, with probably more time spent BC.

Some reviewers have criticized the book as being overly religious, but I disagree. (I'm not particularly religious and I don't care for Christian books, so that is where I'm coming from when I say this.) That being said, religion is definitely a component to the story that you will have to be able to accept. David and Tom will meet Biblical characters and witness Biblical events, but I found it interesting to hear how they managed to exist in that time period and I enjoyed their bickering and present-day viewpoints. And there's a lot more going on, too. There is the sci-fi element of the time travel. There is also quite a bit of action, as David and Tom are pursued by the equivalent of "time travel police," whose job is to keep the past from being altered. There is also some mild romance. I thought the book was well-done and definitely a unique concept. My only complaint was it seemed a little slow at times, but it was still quite enjoyable.

PERFORMANCE - The narrator did a great job. He did Hebrew and African accents well, but I absolutely LOVED the way he performed the various characters when they were possessed by the demon called "the Legion." This demon is actually 50 demons all occupying the same body, often all trying to speak at once. The narrator did an awesome job of spitting out multiple voices in very rapid succession, sometimes with several voices in the same sentence. Wow.

OVERALL (actual rating 3.5) - This book stands alone. There is no sex, cursing or graphic violence. I'd recommend this to any adult who thinks they might enjoy the subject matter.
