The Last Faith: A Book by An Atheist Believer by Karmak Bagisbayev asks a lot of difficult questions about life and its elusive meaning. Why are the social and behavioral distinctions between men and women being rapidly erased? Can a world without violence exist? If not, under what circumstances and to what kind of violence does man have a right? Wherein lies the origin of this right? These are just some of the questions that the author poses to his readers. Divided into three parts namely, The Law of Gene Preservation, The Law of Freedom of Choice, and The Last Faith, this 192-page book is all encompassing and provocative and it sure will make readers think again about their beliefs in life.

The Last Faith: A Book by An Atheist Believer, however, not only asks all these questions, author Karmak Bagisbayev also provides a convincing answer to all these questions that have literally and figuratively plagued the human race from generation to generation. Bravely going against many of the established moral principles of popular world religions, this book is definitely an intriguing read. It will perhaps raise some eyebrows but on the other hand, anyone with a critical mind will be drawn to The Last Faith. Surprisingly an easy read, it comes out as one curious man's conversation with God Himself. Karmak Bagisbayev has a PhD in Physics and Mathematics, so he also presents explanations and evidence to support all his ideas, just like scientists do. And he is definitely very convincing!

The Last Faith by Karmak Bagisbayev is deep. In other words, it is profound and full of insights about us and the world we live in. The subtitle is A Book By An Atheist Believer. Some would say it doesn't get any more confusing than that, but I know for a fact that it can and does. The Last Faith is not a difficult read, but it is very time consuming because of the sheer complexity of the questions pondered. The prologue to this book is weightier than many huge books, both fiction and non-fiction. You will need and want time to ponder the questions asked as well as the answers given. In other words, you will want to think about this book a lot. But I repeat, it is not hard to read.

The Last Faith is beautifully written. I don’t think I’m giving anything away when I say most of it is written as a direct conversation with God. The author asks and God answers in his own unique style as only God can. Karmak Bagisbayev has thought about these things a lot and the result is a beautiful and important work of literature. He is well organized and very systematic in his approach. To be honest, I was hooked from the moment I saw the first conversation. The question is: The Law of Gene Preservation and the Self-preservation Instinct: which comes first? Laugh if you want, but believe it or not I have thought about this and even debated it with friends and professors. It’s kind of nice to know that Karmak Bagisbayev has thought about it too, and has taken the time to write his thoughts down for posterity.

The Last Faith by Karmak Bagisbayev is a philosophical book that discusses the universal and fundamental questions and concepts in life such as the meaning of the universe, the meaning of human life, why do humans and indeed, all creatures, act the way they do, the laws of nature, freedom of choice, religion, spirituality, and more. The Last Faith is written in the form of “conversations” or discussions with God in a question and answer format. The book is divided into several short chapters that are part of three main groups of topics: namely, the law of gene preservation, the law of freedom of choice, and the last faith.

The Last Faith is a book that each person will read and form his or her own conclusions. For my part, although I agreed with some of the concepts explained in the book, I did not agree with the concept of free will and free choice, and the many things that revolve around that. That being said, it does not take away from the book itself and, in fact, I believe the purpose of the book is to inspire and encourage people to think for themselves and draw their own conclusions. The writing is fairly engaging and the topics under discussion themselves make this an interesting read as we deal with life’s and the universe’s fundamental questions. An interesting book that I would recommend.
