Last Christian, suspense novel giveaway


I read an exciting novel, set in A.D. 2088, and titled "The Last Christian", written by David Gregory. The author wrote a best selling novel "Dinner With a Perfect Stranger".
The United States, in this work of fiction, has abandoned the Christian religion, and the world is on the brink of disaster. A scientist has decided to kill a billion people to push the survivors in to adopting his invention. The heroine is Abby Caldwell, who was raised by her parents in a remote village in the South Pacific. Abby is a devoted Christian who travels to the United States and experiences culture shock.
This book was provided for review by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group, and I am giving my copy to one person who leaves a comment here. I pick the winner using random.org
Abby inadvertently breaks the Tolerance Act of 2036, when she spoke critically about other religions on a news show, and she faces being arrested for that. This act reminds me of recent actual laws which ban hate speech, both in the USA and in Australia.
Sometimes fiction, even science fiction, is eerily predictive of what could happen.

So if you are interested leave a comment here for a chance to win a copy of this novel. 
Someone will win, and that winner could be you :)

"Science fiction writers foresee the inevitable." I didn't say it (well, not originally), but Isaac Asimov did. Smart guy.
