After her remote village is annihilated by disease, a cryptic message from her grandfather launches Abby Caldwell into the seemingly impossible task of re-introducing the Christian faith in a late twenty first century, secular, trans-human America.
This is a great book! I really enjoyed it. Really! The first couple of chapters were kind of hard to get into because it was a little confusing; but I kept reading and it completely paid off.
This is such an interesting story because it mirrors what is going on in our world today. So much of what the author wrote about scared me silly. The blatant disregard for God and the outright denial of anything other than our desires is shockingly true to life. I can see how we are just a short step away from the world in this book.
The sci-fi aspect of this book was so much fun to read about. I loved all of the gadgets and little changes to the things we already have; I can totally see some of these things coming about! But, it wasn't so much that it was unbelievable or hard to wade through. You don't have to be a fan of sci-fi to enjoy this book.
I also found myself re-reading some of the theology that the characters believed in and talked about. It challenged me and made me really analyze what I believed. I will be reading this one again; I will also recommend it to everyone.
