  • Summary

  • Against the backdrop of worldwide, unexplainable natural disasters, Dr. Virginia Marilyn Edwards (Emmy Award-winner Kerry Washington) seeks out Agent Scott Thomas (Emmy Award-winner Laurence Fishburne) at a secretive government headquarters. Virginia claims these events are signs, and unless Agent Thomas helps her, she believes things will only get worse. Her desperation is dialed up higher with a shocking proclamation as she stands before him pregnant, weak, and weary: “Agent Thomas,” she says, “I believe I am Mary.”

    Could she be the actual Virgin Mary? Could he be Doubting Thomas, whom she must convince? And what of the two other men - Jonah and Daniel - who have somehow found their way here as well and seem to hold fresh clues to this global mystery?

    Written by Randy McKinnon and produced by Audible, Simpson Street, and QCODE, this supernatural thriller boasts a star-studded cast that also features Critics Choice Award-winner David Oyelowo (Selma), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost), Asa Butterfield (Sex Education), and more. Follow the signs and take a leap of faith - before it’s too late.

Interesting but a confused story that gets mixed up

I’m not sure how I feel after listening. It’s not bad, the actors are excellent and powerful. The story… that’s the “not sure” bit. It’s a little weak. A play on The Omen. I think the idea is very good, and I get it… but the final message of the story is my confusion . It becomes a political, activists rights type thing. I think the author should have gone for the story as it started out, not add in political rights meets racism overtones.

Deluded

Spoiler alerts:

I like a bit of religious conspiracy theory stuff but the story was weak & some of the bible references were a bit dodgy.

One of the plot points was that the character who has an immaculate conception is a black woman and that this was a powerful message. I'm upset that neither the author nor the actors knew that Mary, Jesus' mother, wasn't white. Surely if the actors had known this they wouldn't have continued with the job.

And the fact that the characters who were affected by the phenomenon all had biblical names and were repeating the stories therein. Really tenuous.

May cause some offence

I would venture to say that the story is verging on being blasphemous to be honest. I think if the author attempted this sort interpretation using a different faith, there would be uproar. Not a podcast I would recommend to other Christians

Load of Tosh!

Noisy, intrusive music; unbelievable (and mainly fake) English accents and speech patterns; and an editor who doesn't know the difference between the Lord's Prayer and Psalm 23.
It's good for a laugh.

Depressing

Doom, gloom and woke, very depressing and totally not for me. Bailed before the end, could not suffer any more

Well and expertly played, but preachy and ridiculous

All of the cast play their parts well, but towards the conclusion it does become rather preachy and pointed. it is not the Universe that devalues black women and black lives, it is white people, you know, other ignorant semi-evolved primates.
It is also rather religious, so at lesst you know it is fictional. Well worth a listen, though.

insdequate research to say the least!

If an author is going to refer to the Lord's Prayer it would help if he didn't confuse it with Psalm 23. I'm not even a Christian and i spotted it immediately. They're not even in the same testament for goodness sake.

So, so bad.

Great actors. Dreadful script. Story has no start middle or end. 8 episodes of complete nothingness well delivered by great actors but even that can’t save it. Ending the worst possible in history of stories. My 10 year old could do better. Avoid.

A Black take on fantasy

A contemporary black Virgin Mary faces supernatural forces trying to prevent the Son of God's birth. In this fantasy the Bible is a prophecy of what will happen, so Jonah and Daniel and Moses are living their stories now. I couldn't stop listening-- great performers made it compelling.
