Why I started reading: A friend gave me an ARC of this book and it had been on my to-be-read shelf for quite awhile. When I learned it was nominated for a Christy, I thought I should get around to reading it.

Plot: Abby Caldwell, raised in an isolated jngle tribe flees to the outside world to seek help ofr her tribe when a mysterious illness sweepstrough her village. what she emerges into is a world where technology rules, human brains can now be replaced with a silcon replica, and God is a thing of the past. Abby is just about the last Christian on the planet, but God calls her to speak boldly for Him in a country that has no interest in hearing.

Why I kept reading: The fast-paced, movie-style plot was suspenseful and a bit frightening at times. Plus, I wanted to know how the characters would fare at the end of the book. I think the theology of the book was a bit off in some places. Outside of that, though, I like that the author kept me guessing about the loyalties of some characters. He wove a number of story lines together quite neatly and left the reader both hopeful and war of what future evil might rear its ugly head after the novel's ending.

Recommended for those who like fiction set in the future. Also to fans of books like the Left Behind series.

Brian librarian4him02, I'm not sure if you know about it yet, but David Gregory just came out with a new political fiction novel called Patriot Rules. It's really good. If you liked this book I think you'll love the new one. Just letting you know :)
