Publisher's Summary

What is the unique and most important feature that distinguishes man from all other living beings?
Why is it that, contrary to the instinct of self-preservation, a parent will throw themselves headlong into fire or water to save their child?
Why do people get married and why do they get divorced? Why do people have extramarital affairs and why do two people in a couple become jealous of one another? What is love?
When and why did the type of sex emerge among human beings that is free of any reproductive function?
Why are the social and behavioral distinctions between men and women being rapidly erased?
Why, despite everything, is the world becoming more tolerant than it was in previous centuries?
People are born with different intellectual, spiritual, and physical capabilities. So why do we assert that all people are equal?
Can the world without violence exist? If not, under what circumstances and to what kind of violence does man have a right? Wherein lies the origin of this right?
Where is the root of our morality? Why do our moral values change over time? Do absolute moral values exist?
Why has man, on the whole, never observed (or perhaps is incapable of observing) a set of various religious commandments? Should we observe them? Are they the decree of God?
By which "commandments" do we really live our lives and is it possible to formulate them in such a way that we could realistically observe them?
What is good? And what is evil? Is there a simple criterion by which one may distinguish good from evil?
In which direction is humanity evolving and is it governed by some universal law?
Is there any meaning to life?
Is it possible to give a clear and straightforward answer to all these questions?
It is, in fact, possible!

Critic Reviews

"The Last Faith tackles a number of philosophical questions about the nature of man's existence in a dynamic and thorough way. Readers interested in the issues covered by the book will find it fascinating. Many of the book's arguments and concepts are thought-provoking and inventive." - The BookLife Prize Critic's Report
"Karmak Bagisbayev's The Last Faith, translated by Joanna Dobson, is a highly personal philosophical conversation with God that works to address large questions: freedom of choice versus fate, good versus evil, whether God intervenes in life on earth, and why human beings are here. It is entertaining and thought-provoking in equal measure." - Foreword Clarion Reviews
"A writer tries to answer all of life's mysteries by having a Socratic dialogue with God in this debut philosophical work. As translated from the original Russian by Joanna Dobson, the conversations between God and the protagonist rely heavily on wordplay, engaging rhetorical strategies, and a dry sense of humour that helps to ground the lofty subject matter. This ambitious book's unique structure offers some unusual, intriguing moments."- Kirkus Reviews
