A great book...but not for the overly serious...
am 24. Mai 2007
Best book I've read to date. As soon as I started I couldn't put it down. It's fast paced, but at the same time thought provoking. Given the subject matter I expected something totally serious, but the book has a sense of humor on top of fast-paced action, historical detail and some surprising plot twists.
I'm not sure why the first reviewer is so grumpy about the book. I have yet to see another novel about time travelers going back in time to attempt disproving Jesus, but even if there actually was another novel matching that description I doubt it would match the originality of Didymus Contingency.
Additionally, this is far from being a traditional Christian fiction. I didn't feel like the author was trying to "win my soul". Rather, he seemed to be using the story of Christ as a unique backdrop to a modern day thriller. I enjoyed it immensely.
