In Transgression, subtitled A Time-Travel Suspense novel by Randy Ingermanson, three people, from modern day, travel from the Israel of our time to the Israel of Paul's time. However, one of them has ulterior motives. To assassinate the Apostle Paul, and thereby prevent the establishment of Christianity as we know it. But is it even possible for someone to change their own past? Or is the "trajectory of the universe through phase space single-valued?"
I am a huge fan of the intersection of science and Christianity. As such, this book offered some excellent thinking points. But you don't have to be a science, software, or engineering geek to enjoy this story. There is a solid thread of romance, in addition to well developed characters, and thought provoking material.
My favorite quote from the book is, "People would question anything having to do with God, but they wouldn't question their own questions." So true.
As a huge proponent for understanding the Jewish cultural roots to Christianity, I loved the author's descriptions of the city of Israel at the time of the Apostle Paul. While I can't completely vouch for either the accuracy of the city then or even now, nothing jumped out at me as blatantly inaccurate.
Finally, if you have an e-reader, you can't beat the price, as this book is currently available for free at Amazon. However, this may lead to you wanting to purchase the next two books of the series as this was an intriguing read.
