Book Review: The Final Summit

My friend Meghan at Faith for Wings has been a blogger for BookSneeze for a while now and it piqued my interest in what it was. I checked into it and basically you get free books in exchange for a short and honest review of the books they send you. Since I love to read I figured, why not?!

The first book I chose to review was The Final Summit by Andy Andrews. I heard Andy speak at Women of Faith in 2010 and he fascinated me. He was such a a dynamic and interesting speaker. His stories were wonderful and full of so much passion. I immediately knew I wanted to read something by him so when I had the opportunity to get this book I jumped on it.

Honestly, the book was very hard for me to get into. It took me months to read it which is extremely strange for me. I can go through a book (or more) a week usually. I think the main thing for me was that the book wasn't my usual genre. I tend to stick with Christian Romance or Christian Chick-Lit and this book was more of a Christian Sci-Fi book. It was not bad at all. It was actually very well written but it wasn't my style, if that makes sense.

The book is actually a part two with the first book being The Traveler's Gift. Fortunately, you did not need to read the first book to understand this one. Everything you need to know is explained to you within the first few chapters. The book follows David Ponder as he attends a final summit meeting in another dimension in which he is the facilitator. The summit is assembled to find the one principle that will save humanity. The summit is filled with extrordinary people from the past and they offer advice, help, and support to David to find the principle needed to save humanity. Some of the people David encounters include President Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Joan of Arc, and King David. The answers that were submitted were all very thought provoking to me. It made me ponder how each of the principles could affect and better humanity. It made me want to instigate them in my own life to see what impact they could have if even in a small way.

Overall, I would recommend this book. It was well written and once I finally got into it I was curious to see what came next and wanted to read on to find the answers to what is a question of great value to us. If you're into sci-fi or history this book would definitely be great for you. One thing I really loved was reading about famous and well-loved people from the past. Andy did a great job of finding and telling the facts of each person's life and keeping the characters true to who they really were.

So, go ahead and read the book! If you do, tell me what you think about!
