The Last Christian by David Gregory

What if the political push of tolerance eliminates Christianity from The United States? This is fact in David Gregory's novel, The Last Christian.

Abi Caldwell has lived in the jungle of New Guinea for her entire life. Something has wiped out the village her missionary family has served. This sends her to distant relatives in America.

Bryson Nichols has created the next step in human evolution: the silicon brain. Now all you have to do is upload your existence within computers and virtual reality.

Creighton Daniels teaches history and is dealing with the sudden unexpected death of his father.

Somehow these characters are connected and the twists will keep coming.

Abi is tasked with reintroducing Christianity to The United States. Someone doesn't want this to happen and will stop at nothing to see that this religion remains dead.

The Last Christian is an interesting "what-if" futuristic novel. This is a could-happen story with spiritual truth. The main truth is the foundation of the Christian faith. What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? What does it mean that Jesus is the Life?

I enjoyed reading through this book however I was not pleased with the fatal detail at the very end of the book. I felt this was an unnecessary aspect. It just didn't need to happen.
