Book Review - The Last Christian by David Gregory
for a sneak peak go here :
In the future, it’s possible to live forever—but at what cost?
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.
now the review well. i didn't really like this one which is sad cause i thought it'd be a super fast read but honestly i didn't even finish it. i just couldn't get into it at all. its more of a science fiction kind of thing and i just couldn't get into it really. i think mostly cause it was confusing to me. so i really didn't like this one but if you are into science fiction or whatever you'd probably like this one.
