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.

I think every one has thought about what it would be like to ge back in time. This reminds me of my own hidden desires to go back. Jeremy chooses an event and then creates what you would have experianced it, if you were really present. Jesus as a normal guy, with little pranks and indepth descussions. I was very impressed the whole concept of the book.

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

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. 👍
