I received a copy of THE FINAL SUMMIT by Andy Andrews from Thomas Nelson. The story is about David Ponder, a Traveler. In a nutshell, that means he is able to travel through time with help from the Archangel Gabriel. There are other books in the series that explain this more, and after reading this one, I cannot wait to get my hands on them. This book was a fast read – I literally could not put it down until I was done.
The Archangel Gabriel takes David to a meeting of Travelers. Gabriel tells them that time is running out for humankind and they must decide how to, essentially, save the world. However, they only have five guesses to figure it out. Among the other Travelers are Martin Luther King Jr., Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Amelia Earhart, Eric Erickson, King David, and Benjamin Franklin. Andy Andrews uses the real views of these historical figures to paint their arguments as they reach an answer.
Despite the fact that this book is mainly about a meeting, the dialogue is rich and the historical content is fantastic. I was hooked from the first chapter. The cover is also very intriguing – it shows a feather and three pennies, with a different texture than the rest of the print. This is the perfect read for anyone who loves history and religion.
