Anything is possible if you believe in God. Anna was a scientist, one of many. She was merely Anna, a child conceived but not born of humans, brought up in an institution and brainwashed by the same institution. That is until she latches onto a group of dissidents who still believe, who still read the Bible, who still have faith. Over the course of her studies and off-Earth research, Anna continues to read the Bible, gifted her by one of the dissidents who was arrested before her eyes. Alone on a spacecraft, with only a robot, Z, for company, Anna studies off planet until word reaches her that life has been found on a previously unknown planet. She has to see for herself because this challenges all that she is beginning to believe from her Bible readings. What happens next continues to challenge her growing beliefs. But, once she realizes it is all a conspiracy, a power struggle amongst some control monsters on Earth, she uses her knowledge and her faith to fight back.

Daniel Peyton’s Christian science fiction novel, Remnant, is a powerful story that challenges the arguments that have always existed between science, evolution and Christian beliefs. Set well into the future, with characters molded to perfection (not unlike Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel, Brave New World), the plot thickens on multiple levels: good and the power of faith against evil. The characters are realistically developed and the newly discovered species on the unknown planet/moon are created with simplistic wonder. The story that evolves appears very plausible. A great page-turner of a read and one that will certainly make one look again at the power of faith, the power of believing.
