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).

    Story
    "Great Bible References"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book was inspiring and thought provoking, and I have recommended that my friends read it...I listened to it twice because it had so many great details.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abby was the main character and my favorite. Because she was raised in the jungle and not up to speed on all the newest technology, she was very innocent about learning technology but also couldn't understand how a country could possibly live with God.


    What about Lincoln Hoppe’s performance did you like?

    The Narrator was so good at voice tones to help distinguish the characters. He kept my attention.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I didn't want to stop the book, normally listening while I exercise and drive.


    Any additional comments?

    More books like this one would be great.

    I absolutely ADORE reading but with the long commute to and from work and caring for a lot of people that aren't well, listening to books in the car have saved my reading career. Thanks Audible.

    "fantastic."

    This book was an exceptional novel about the potential future of our nation and what that can lead to and our spirituality. It was very moving and helped to evaluate how even though intentions may be good, it can lead to catastrophic results I enjoyed this book and have recommended it to many many friends. Enjoy!

    "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.

    "Every Christian should read this book!"

    LOVED this book! First time reading this author. He gives such profound and provoking thoughts that will encourage evey Christian no matter where they are at in ther relationship with Jesus.

    Key verse: Galatians 2:20 It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.

    This book certainly makes you think of possibilities the future holds if Christ doesn't return before then.... The story overall was engaging. ..

    "Worth my thoughts and time!"

    The story was both thought-provoking and faith-challenging. Characters stayed true to their intruduced personalities, and the story presentation was well-presented.
    In my own Christian life, I am becoming more aware of the need of Christ's Spirit living thru me before and above all else. I was amazed at the timing and relevance of this story to my own life.

    "My thoughts on the last Christian"

    I would recommend this book to any of my friends who read science fiction and Christian fiction. And maybe just anyone. This book is not too far-fetched. Especially the title. It is very thought-provoking, suspenseful, and educational. I truly hope that the science fiction part of this book always stays fiction and never fact.

    I love a good murder mystery or any novel where good overcomes evil. Two of my favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.

    "Amazing and believable!"

    David Gregory did a fantastic job depicting a future without Christianity. It is plain to see how society today is already heading in that direction with a little help from technology and the government. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

    "Maybe a good book....."

    I was intrigued by this book and bought it with anticipation. However I won't get to find out from this audio version as I quit after a quarter.

    The Problem: The reader. I'm not sure if he was being overly earnest or if he was just bored. He read each word so slowly and left long, long gaps at the end of each sentence. Possibly interesting characters were reduced to unbearable bores. Every so often his voice would rise up as if he was a teenage boy.

    I'm sorry, I am still interested in the plight of Abby and maybe I will buy the book, however i begrudge paying twice for the same thing.

    In the future I will be more careful in listening to the samples
