Format: Paperback
Although I do usually read fiction, I have never actually read a science fiction book - until now. Set in 2088, this book imagines a world where many diseases have been eradicated, Africa has made progress and across the globe life expectancy has drastically improved with life at 120 years expected. It is at this point in history that a young American lady Abigail Caldwell emerges from the interior jungle of Papua New Guinea (cut off from the outside world since birth) after her village was mysterious wiped and heads to America to find that the America that her parents talked about has dramatically changed - and on the verge of something catastrophic. It is a riveting book, with many twists and turns. A wonderful book with a positive message. Strongly recommended.

This book is set in AD2088 and looks at what our world may have become by then in a very realistic manner. A world controlled by technology, where people live much of their lives in `Virtual Reality'. The latest proposal is for humans to have their brains replaced with brains that will last for ever. Into this world comes a young woman who has lived all her life in the jungle.
I found this an exciting page-turner of a book, but one that also made me think about what our lives are for. It's well worth reading.

Shades of the beginning to John Grisham's The Testament, as a missionary comes out of the jungle to face a very different lifestyle, belief system, and in this case very advanced technology.

It's 2088 and reason, science and technology have developed significantly to leave Christianity and other religions behind. But there's something about Abby that's different, and intriguing. She has something that others don't.

Well researched and paced thriller, genuine page turner, with insights into future developments and the role of faith. And a fascinating take on 'life' and what it means, especially from a Christian perspective, though it's neither heavy handed nor a Bible bash.

Recommended.

Format: Paperback
David Gregory has written a terrific and engaging story while setting out the arguments for and against the relevance of Christianity to a secular world. And he's managed to do it without being the least bit preachy on either side of the argument. It's so refreshing to see even the arguments for and against the existence of God played out free of the trolling that accompanies so much of this debate on line. If you are a secular humanist believing God to be a useless fairytale or a Christian following Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you will find something to suit you and plenty to make you think.

It's 2088 and Abby Caldwell comes out of the Jungle where her parents were missionarys to find that the Christian faith was long ago abandoned in America. Concepts such as forgiveness for sin no longer resonate because people no longer believe in sin. Science rules and is on the verge of abolishing even death for the majority of the population. But strange things are happening, some people are getting unusual dreams and Abby's return to "civilisation" attracts both curiosity and a desire in some to murder her.

Blending science fiction, stimulating debate and a good old fashioned thriller, this is a great book that I really enjoyed.

Can't agree any less with you David. Believers have been going about the Life Jesus died to give us wrongly. We rely on Him to live the Life through us than struggle to do His works on our own. Great piece of work David, also love the medical and futuristic background.

Looking for a good read for your summer hols, this is a 'what if' book and is excellent reading for people of faith and of no faith. Well written it grips you and doesn't let go until the final page. The scary thing is that the 'what if' is only just around the corner!
