Andy Andrews’ newest book, “The Final Summit,” took on “a quest to find the one principle that will save humanity,” but it ended up taking me on an adventure that would teach me many more principals, not just one.
People felt his inspiring so much in the first book about David Ponder, “The Traveler’s Gift” that it was a best seller, and now, readers are taught much more about what it means to truly live in the way God wants us to in order for humanity to survive. He expertly crafts mystery, history, logic, and motivation into one inspirational-packed fiction read.
If you hadn’t read the first book in which Ponder discovered the Seven Decisions to life success, they are reviewed again throughout the prose in the first half of this book. I was glad, since I hadn’t read the first book! Amazing decisions that everyone should hang on their refrigerator and by their desk to stay consistently motivated to do good and find success from that good. I was entranced in this book and almost read it in one sitting. I was intrigued by his use of God’s principles intertwined with famous historical people such as Lincoln, Churchill, Joan of Ark and more. These famous former Travelers were shown to have been vessels of God for his messages to society. Now that it seems society has not been listening, Ponder is tasked with being chairmen of a summit that must come up with the principle for saving humanity.
After being escorted by Archangel Gabriel to a room with Winston Churchill, they call upon several other famous Travelers and discuss possible alternatives for what humanity must do to stay on the right path. All principles, or values, handed up as “the” principle are incorrect, yet very good components of what we need to do in our every day lives. When it seems that all is lost and humanity will not survive, they finally come up with the great principle and you won’t want to miss it.
