A.D. 2088.Â 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.
At the same time, 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.Â But at what expense?
Abby 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 balanceâ€”the spiritual future of all humanity.
David Gregory is the coauthor of two nonfiction books and a frequent conference speaker. After a ten-year business career, he returned to school to study religion and communications, earning two master’s degrees. David lives in Texas, where he works for a nonprofit organization.
I loved this book!Â I wasn’t certain I was going to when I first started reading because the prologue and first two chapters didn’t seem to relate to each other — oh but they do, and when they all come together the realization of what is going on will absolutely blow you away. The Last Christian, by David Gregory is a spell-binding read. No housework, no photography and no blogging got done while I read this novel. Amoeba is lucky he got dinner.
The futuristic setting is wholly believable and easy to comprehend.Â Although there is much science in the novel, I would classify this as a medical thriller rather than a science fiction novel.
