MY REVIEW:

This book will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Wow! It's full of suspense, intrigue, and hope in dire times. This genre is not normally something I look to read, but this story was captivating and interesting to read. I enjoyed the thick plot, the deep characters, and the well written story. The Last Christian is not only a good story, but also reminder to those of us to stand up for what is right. The look into the future with this book gave me a weird feeling and was sobering, but also believable. Anyone who enjoys a good mystery, a science novel, or futuristic fiction will have fun reading this book.

BOOK OVERVIEW:

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.
