A physicist creates a wormhole into first century Israel and embarks on a quest to kill the apostle Paul in an attempt to prevent the rise of Christianity. A messianic Jew Rivkah) tries to stop him, accompanied by the physicist’s partner (Ari). This is a thrilling premise, and one I was eager to pick up.
I love time travel stories, and there are not a lot of them in “Christian Fiction” so Transgression grabbed my attention straight away. I was not let down. This was an exciting story with a lot of depth.
The book explores the history of Christianity and Judaism. It explores the sometimes tenuous relationship between Jews and Christians. The protagonist Rivkah embodies this relationship as a Jewish Christian. This relationship is mirrored by the relationship between Rivkah and Ari, who is a secular Jew.
If you’re looking for an intelligent and slightly edgy time-travel story then you can’t pass up Transgression.
