Publisher's Summary

A.D. 2088. Missionary daughter Abigail Caldwell emerges from the jungle for the first time in her 34 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 futuristic thriller, startling near-future science collides with thought-provoking theology. The Last Christian is a provocative "what if?" novel from David Gregory, best-selling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger.

What the Critics Say

"The plotting is intricate and imaginative, and the religious elements go beyond formula....Gregory's approach is fresh, and he's produced a page-turner." (Publishers Weekly)

An intersection of science and belief.

I found this book to be an interesting intersection of science and belief. Would you choose to believe in man and live forever without God, or believe in God and live forever after death.

Being a software engineer the thought of living as a software program gives me chills (because I know how buggy software can be).

- Mike "Normal on the outside, something else on the inside. Kinda like a banana!"

I wanted to like this book.

What would have made The Last Christian better?

Better theology conserning the Christian faith and scriptures.


Has The Last Christian turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.


What about Lincoln Hoppe’s performance did you like?

Very well read. Easy to listen to. Smooth voice.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This book started out well and was actually good until about the last third. The gospel is lost. The true Christian message is watered down, and the premise is left wanting.


Any additional comments?

This book could have been so much better. It came so close and then fell apart. It makes me sad.
