The Final SummitA Quest to Find the One Principle That Will Save Humanity

By Andy Andrews
Published by Thomas Nelson                 

The Final Summit by Andy Andrews is a sequel to his previous novel, The Traveler's Gift.  While it would help the reader to have the background from the earlier novel, it is not necessary to understand this work.  David Ponder, a character from the first novel, is paid yet another visit by the archangel Gabriel.  David, along with the other Travelers throughout history, have been summoned to a final summit to determine the fate of humanity.  The question they must answer is, "What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?”  They are told it is a two word answer, and they have a limited time to answer.  The storyline follows the group as they try to determine the one thing humanity needs to do.

While this was a good novel with many fine points, it was difficult for me to develop a solid interest until the end of the novel.  Minor liberties were taken with historical characters and quotations, and at times the reading is a bit dry.  However, the overall point of the novel is a good one and worth reading.

As a book blogger/reviewer, dedicated bibliophile, and just plain serious reader, I have way too many books around here.  Therefore, it is necessary to start clearing some of these bookshelves around here.  For the next few weeks, I will be doing a couple of book giveaways a week.  The giveaways will begin each Saturday and end on Friday midnight of that week.  Unless otherwise noted, these books are my VERY CAREFULLY read review copies.  So, technically, they are used, but you can hardly tell it.  Ask anyone in my family; I'm a nut regarding the way I read books.  I try not to open them too widely,or leave them splayed open, and I never!!! fold pages down.  Yes, I have issues, but it's going to pay off for some of you. : )
