The Last Christian: A Novel by David Gregory
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Abigail Caldwell had no idea what she was getting into as she paddled her canoe down the jungle rivers in Papua New Guinea. All she knew was she had to save her tribe and to do that, she needed to get help. Even her daughter, Miraba needed her help. The expedition for aid turns into a life changing event for Abby as she not only leaves the only life she has ever known, but travels to a country so technologically advanced that the population has explained away God--and it's her responsibility to bring them back to their original faith. Follow Abby on a suspense-filled thriller that will leave you breathless until the very end!
Science fiction is not normally a genre I would even go near, but the blend of faith and science posed in the description of this book enticed me, and I was not disappointed! This plots begins thickly and strongly and carries through until the very last pages. There is not a wasted word in this entire book in my opinion. The characters are well-rounded and deep. Gregory weaves an enticing, yet believable tale of the characters as well as makes the science gobbledygook understandable to my non-scientific mind. He even weaves in sound Biblical truth that challenged me to live out my faith in a more passive way. (I know that sounds opposite to what Christianity is about, but just read the book and you will know exactly what I am talking about.)
