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.

The Last Christian sounded intriguing by the words on the back cover. I was excited to receive a copy from Water Brook Multnomah to review. I found myself bored at the beginning with all the science talk, but was captivated with the scenes that had Abby and Kate in them.
In the beginning , all the science talk turned me off and I was lost. I know that to some this is captivating information but for me, I didn't want to know because I couldn't understand it. (I am not into science at all! It has never been my subject! Being a homeschool mom, I'll hire someone to teach science to my kids... anyone interested!?!? LOL))
David's writing style is great. The story was an interesting one! Great plot. You will ask yourself many times during the course of reading this, 'What if?'
In the future all this could place. Surely the United States could totally turn away from the Christian message all together. (It is heading in that direction now...)
If you like science, future and 'what if's'... you will LOVE David's The Last Christian.
