The Final Summit

Genre: Inspirational/self-help/motivational/general

David Ponder is seventy-seven years of age, and he’s feeling depressed, like nothing is worth living for anymore. His dear wife is now gone, and David is considering ending it all. He gets out the pouch filled with the treasures from his first time traveling trip, and starts thinking about how he brought himself back from nothing with the help of these tools.

When the archangel Gabriel appears, David believes the end is at hand, but instead, Gabriel takes him to someplace else where there will be a meeting of minds to discuss the fate of mankind. David is supposed to be the leader, and as such he will have five attempts to answer one question.

The answer is only two words. It must be found in five tries and before the sand in the hour glass runs out. What is the one thing that we must do when we don’t know what to do?

THE FINAL SUMMIT is only the second book of Andy Andrew’s that I’ve ever read, but I think that I am a fan for life. This book is powerful, overwhelmingly so. It is engaging. It is nonfiction told in fiction style. It is full of wisdom. It is packed with little known historical facts. It is, in one word, WOW.

If you only read one book this year, make it THE FINAL SUMMIT. This book may offend some theologically (there are some theologically unsound things) but overwhelmingly more that that, it is packed full of important truths that will leave you thinking, considering, hopeful, courageous, and on and on until you discover the final answer yourself. Discussion questions are included at the end, and teaching materials are available at $19.99 hardcover. 243 pages.
