The Final Summit
A Quest to Find the One Principle That Will Save Humanity
by Andy Andrews | Genre: Fiction
Release Date: April 2010
 

David Ponder is back. This time the fate of mankind is in his hands.

This is mankind's last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it consists of only two words.

With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history's best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer.

Readers first encountered David Ponder in The Traveler's Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don't know what to do.

Many years have passed since David Ponder discovered the Seven Decisions during a divine journey through time. Now 74 years old, Ponder has lost the one thing that mattered to him most: his wife, Ellen. Despite his personal and professional success, he now sits alone at the top of his 55-story high-rise contemplating the unthinkable, just as he did 28 years ago.

However, just as things are looking their darkest, Ponder is informed through divine channels that he is needed now more than ever. Together, with the help of hundreds of his fellow Travelers, from Winston Churchill to George Washington Carver to Joan of Arc, he must work to discover the one solution that will save humanity. Time is running out, and the final summit of Travelers must work quickly to avoid dire consequences.

The Final Summit explores the historically proven principles that have guided our greatest leaders for centuries, and how we might restore these principles in our own lives...before it's too late.

Just Okay | Posted July 01, 2012

The Final Summit is a sequel of sorts to the book The Traveler's Gift.  I have not read this book, but found that is was not necessary to understand The Final Summit.  Andy Andrews has created a parable of sorts, addressing the issue of how Christians, and people in general, can "save humanity".  The main character, David Ponder, has learned the Seven Decisions (during The Traveler's Gift), and now he is an old man nearing the end of his life.  As he contemplates life without his wife, who recently passed away, he is visited by the archangel Gabriel and told he is to join a summit of all the Travelers throughout history.  There task is simple: answer one question with a two-word answer.  The question is "What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?"  David and his fellow Travelers, including Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, and King David, have five opportunities to answer the question correctly, or humanity's time will run out.


I found the story fast moving and interesting.  The historical characters were integrated into the story well, and I found that I learned some interesting facts about some of them.  One in particular, Eric Erickson, has a story almost too amazing to believe.  In fact, I googled him after reading his tale, and found it too be true.


The ideas presented were fairly simple to understand, but seem to be lacking in modern society.  However, the ultimate answer to the question was not quite the earth-shattering solution I expected.


The references to Christianity and God run throughout the novel, but act more as an anchor for the reasons each of the characters feels the way they do, or makes the choices they make, than as a means of "preaching" the message of Christ.


Overall, I enjoyed the book and thought it was entertaining. I would recommend it to readers who enjoy an inspirational and encouraging message.


Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.combook review bloggers program.
