I couldn't put this novel down. The state of Christianity in the USA is going this route, the true message of the power of Christ and the political correctness pushing sharing the message out of public life. A refreshing story of a missionary in a closed tribe for years working with the Lord to bring the gospel, and learning along the way herself.
Although I wondered just where the Rapture of the church would have been in this book's scenario, I completely enjoyed the storyline. It was well written and had enough explanations of the gospel in it, without being overdone, that I am going to use it as a witnessing tool. I didn't love the ending, but I'll leave that for you to decide. It's still an excellent book as long as you remember that it's fiction.
i really enjoyed this book... i think its the best Christian fiction book i have read since the Narnia books I read as a kid. Very likable characters interesting plot... though I was a bit dissatisfied with the ending ... I think it fell apart a little and didn't tie up all the loose ends but overall it was an excellent book.
If Jesus were to tarry his return, what do you imagine would be happening in the year 2088? David Gregory has a pretty big imagination and it really made me think! With the way technology and knowledge is increasing, can you imagine people being able to visit face-to-face anyplace in the world in a virtual reality world? Can you imagine brain transplants that would enable people to live forever?That's only part of the story in The Last Christian. Now imagine a 34-year-old daughter of missionaries coming out of a remote jungle village in Papau New Guinea into this virtual technological world--trying to save her village from a fatal disease. And Abigail Caldwell is also one of the last Christians in the world. Her grandfather has left her a virtual message which catapults her into trying to be a witness for Christ in this new world. Abigail finds 2 men who respond to her kind spirit and gentle ways and who help her navigate this strange new world.I'm not a big sci-fi fan. So it was hard for me to get into this book. I would read awhile, put it down, and then pick it back up. But towards the last half of the book, I couldn't put it down. That's when David Gregory began preaching his message through this fiction book. And it inspired me! And I do believe it's going to help me live my life differently.I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Maybe if I were a sci-fi fan, it would be 5 out of 5 stars.
