The Last Christian

I received this book in the mail several weeks ago in a torn package and I was not sure who it was that sent this to me until this evening. This was a book I was supposed to review, but I have not read it yet. I thought I would share the synopsis with you. It sounds like a really good book and I cannot wait until I actually get to read it.

About This Book

In the future, it’s possible to live forever—but at what cost?

A.D. 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: 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.

This is so crazy! My Sunday school teacher mentioned this book this past sunday.
He wasn't suggesting that we read it, necessarily, but he just mentioned a few things in it.
