Reading the description for the cojtingency I thought this would be another book preaching contungency 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 ckntingency 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 contignency without cotningency 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.
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.
