AD 2088: 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: reintroduce 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 … and the spiritual future of all humanity hangs in the balance.

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, bestselling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger.

    " Can I just tell you guys how excited I am about this book? I feel like I've read a string of Christian fiction lately that has been somewhat enjoyable, but the same old, same old. Some better than others, but it's all still been done before over and over. Blah. So when Waterbrook/Multnomah sent me The Last Christian, I was pretty excited. I've never read dystopic/futuristic Christian fiction. It's actually original! It hasn't been done a million times over! The entire book was really reminiscent of the Space Trilogy by CS Lewis, but also completely unique. The basic plot is that Christianity completely dies out in America. A child of missionaries in the jungle of Papua New Guinea who hasn't been exposed to any outside cultures emerges when her entire tribe is killed by a mysterious disease. She returns to America and discovers a conspiracy involving a high-tech neuroscience group who has discovered a way to replace the human brain and provide the potential for eternal life - but killing the soul in the process. Yeah, ok it's a little far-fetched. And there were some writing issues that I think could have been worked on. But I really want to focus on the positive and the fact that someone is doing something new finally. We're off the whole Amish people, orphan train, utopian Christian romance where we clutch our pearls at the thought of premarital sex or alcohol. This author portrays real life and real people who aren't perfect and does it in a completely original story. It's a great book that shows what could happen to Christianity if things continue the way they are now but doesn't sermonize. It doesn't necessarily have a happy ending. I almost passed out when I got to the ending and people didn't become Christians and some of them died. It was believable and did I mention creative?? I'm so excited to see something new in this genre and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the idea of doing something original spreads. "

    " I don't normally read science fiction, but this was just sci-fi enough to be really interesting, and just provocative enough to be believable. A good read for Christians and non-believers, too. "

    " A phenomenal Effort from writer David Gregory actually shocked Me at how good This was, as any christian Who has read any christian novel, We all know that there is absolutely no such thing as Christian science-fiction.. Until now. while at times unlikely seeming, (like much of science-fiction) there are no egregious plot-holes that would directly jar the reader out of this reality. of course You have one plot device however, the procedure which 'removes the soul' that is a bit hard, but works mostly. I felt that the characters were seemingly totally stupid at times, or rather far too ignorant of their situation. And that a few times They spend too long just standing around, shooting the breeze. The novel comes together at an unexpected end and feels like it's meant to serve as the beginning of a series of stories, which I would not mind. "
