Mission by Patrick Tilley

This has been hanging around a long time, ever since I bought it, new, in Forbidden Planet, Denmark Street, in 1983.

I seem to remember reading a summary of the story in the back of another book, perhaps The Soul Of A New Machine by John Tracy Kidder?

Although it recounts the fantastic story of the discovery of Jesus Christ's body (which subsequently returns to life) in contemporary New York, the consequences are explored logically, in a similar way to Ken Grimwood's Replay.

Fond of the story, I hung on to it for sentimental reasons. But I can't imagine re-reading it now.

Sorry Patrick. And I only just discovered you too hail from Essex...
