The Last Christian Standing Book Review and GIVEAWAY!

~Giveaway Now CLOSED~

The Last Christian by David Gregory was F.A.N.T.A.S.T.I.C!  I love science (I use to want to be a high school biology teacher) and Gregory's writing style was easy to follow.  The story isn't a feel good fiction, similar to what I'm use to reading but very real.  The storyline was set in the future of 2088 where all Americans have implanted computer chips.  Virtual reality is used everyday and for all things.  Often people don't meet in the physical realm such as a restaurant, they meet in virtual reality from the privacy of their own home or office or wherever they may be.  Cars are operated via computers and robots are household norms.  It may sound ridiculous, but really Gregory just took cloning, stem cell research, computers and technology and wrote about a future that could become one day America's reality. 
The storyline follows Abigail Caldwell out of the jungle and into America to fulfill the mission God has for her - to bring Christianity back to America.  As she tries to go about her mission she realizes it will be much harder than she ever thought, as no one can fathom the need for a Saviour.  With all the advancements in technology, the dissappearance of moral absolutes and since marriages are a thing of the past; finding a way to share God's love becomes increasingly difficult for Abigail. 
Abigail struggles with her own faith as she tries to reach out to those around her.  All the while she is in the fight of her life searching for the killer who murdered her village in the jungle, and trying to tie up all the loose ends from the message that her grandfather sent her 16 years ago.

You will be enthralled reading this novel with silicone brains transplants, a godless society and a virtual reality.  And you can check it out for yourself because I'm giving a copy of this book away.  All you have to do is leave me a comment with your contact info to be entered.

This giveaway will close Friday, June 4th at 7pm PST.

This book was provided for review by the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
