The Last Pilgrims is a novel by Michael Bunker, a Christian agrarian and Biblical separatist. It is set 20 years after the collapse of America and explores the future from a Protestant Historicist perspective. The author provides a sample novella of the first 1/3 novel for free at http://www.lastpilgrims.com/.
I read the sample novella and found it interesting. I wouldn’t classify it as some of the best fiction I’ve ever read; however, I did find the author’s perspective instructive and challenging. For instance, one of the main characters is a pacifist. He supports pacifism in all situations, and he puts those beliefs into practice with full knowledge of the potential cost of his actions. His perspective is making me re-examine my beliefs concerning self-defense. While I don’t think I could ever not defend my children if someone tried to harm them, I do enjoy the process of making sure my beliefs are Biblically grounded. I look forward to reading more of this series.
