About This Book   (from publisher)

In the future, it’s possible to live forever—but at what cost?

A.D. 2088.

Missionary daughter Abigail Caldwell emerges from the jungle for the first time in her thirty-four years, the sole survivor of a mysterious disease that killed her village. Abby goes to America, only to discover a nation where Christianity has completely died out. A curious message from her grandfather assigns her a surprising mission: re-introduce the Christian faith in America, no matter how insurmountable the odds.

But a larger threat looms. The world's leading artificial intelligence industrialist has perfected a technique for downloading the human brain into a silicon form. Brain transplants have begun, and with them comes the potential of eliminating physical death altogether—but at what expense?

As Abby navigates a society grown more addicted to stimulating the body than nurturing the soul, she and Creighton Daniels, a historian troubled by his father's unexpected death, become unwitting targets of powerful men who will stop at nothing to further their nefarious goals. Hanging in the balance—the spiritual future of all humanity.

In this fast-paced thriller, startling near-future science collides with thought-provoking religious themes to create a spell-binding "what-if?" novel.

My Thoughts:

The more I read Christian fiction, the more I love it! It's not just romance any more. Christian fiction has taken a direction that is wonderfully exciting and "The Last Christian" is a fantastic example!

I will warn you - this book isn't for the person who reads a few paragraphs and then puts it aside to pick back up at a later time. It is one of those books that won't allow you to put it down. I started this in the morning and couldn't help but read straight through. I had to know what happened next. Yes - it's that captivating.

Mr. Gregory has a fantastic way of pulling you into the story. He makes you want to know more about the main characters and their situations. He is a master at weaving an exciting tale that you soon won't forget. It stays with you long after you put the book down. I am putting David Gregory on my watch list and am looking forward to reading more of his work in the future.

Make sure to add this book to your reading list. You won't be disappointed.
