The last Christian : a novel
Gregory, David

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

The hit sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica meets the New Testament in the new novel by Gregory (Dinner with a Perfect Stranger). In the year 2088, Christian missionary Abigail Caldwell leaves her New Guinea village to seek help for fellow villagers, who have all been stricken by a mysterious disease. A message from her grandfather, an American neuroscientist who is the co-inventor of a silicon brain replacement, draws her to America, where religion has died out. Abby joins forces with a historian who has a connection to Abby's family as they investigate the death of her grandfather and face the spiritual implications of "transhumanity"-humans with replacement silicon brains that promise eternal life but make impossible personal connection with God. The plotting is intricate and imaginative, and the religious elements go beyond formula, though the political intrigue plot thread is less convincing. Gregory's approach is fresh, and he's produced a page-turner. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
