Book Review - The Final Summit by Andy Andrews
Andy Andrews is an author whose name I'd heard a few times, but not one whom I had read. When I saw his latest book, The Final Summit (Thomas Nelson), I decided I had to read it. I am so glad that I did.
The Final Summit is considered to be a spiritual help, philosophical book, and well it is. To answer one question with a two word answer is David Ponder's mission as he joins great figures from history at a summit in Heaven. It gets better - Gabriel (the archangel) is the one who brings David there. Will David and the others answer the question before it's too late? You ask, "Too late for what?" To save humanity from itself, of course.
Okay, okay. You won't understand until you read The Final Summit for yourself. Suffice it to say that this is a different sort of spiritual guidance book. It reads like pure fiction - a story that only a master story teller could put together. I enjoyed every word of it. I tried to guess the two words - I was incorrect - and I refrained from peeking at the end pages though I really wanted to.
Speaking of the end pages, Andy Andrews has added an interesting author's note that you will want to read. While you're at the back of the book, you might also want to take advantage of the reader's guide.
To sum up, The Final Summit is an engaging story that teaches Biblical truths while utilizing a fictional format - with a lot of history woven into it. I'm keeping this book on my bookshelf and using it in our homeschool studies.
