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)

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
