Book Review: The Final Summit

Ok, I really couldn't pass up a chance to get and read a Christian fiction eBook for free! I belong to a review site called BookSneeze where they give me free books and I write reviews. Love it. You get to choose what books you want to review and last night I picked The Final Summit by Andy Andrews in eBook form. (Quick gratification...I got to download it thirty seconds later.) Yes, last night. I read it....and finished it a few hours later. I was really in the mood for some good fiction and this was a good choice!

This book focuses around the main character David. David is a Traveler. That is, someone whom God has allowed to travel back through time and meet certain historical characters to learn from them. The Final Summit is the second book that David appears in. The first book details his journey back through time. This book details what happens when God calls an assembly of all the Travelers that ever were throughout history. Their task? Figure out why the present civilization is headed for destruction and what they can do to get back on the right path. David has been appointed to lead the assembly in search for the answer. The twist? They only have a limited amount of time and guesses to get it right. Get it wrong and civilization will continue on it's path to destruction and death.

I really liked this book. It has a simple but intellectually complex plot line with some amazing nuggets of wisdom in it. The book reads well, is easy to follow and you can get through it fairly quickly. It wasn't the most exciting book, but this isn't the kind of book you read for the action. This is a kind of book you read for the message. There were some amazing quotes, ideas and general points about life. It was challenging and inspiring. There are several places that I have underlined. Overall, this isn't a book that changed my life and I wouldn't necessarily go out and buy it (I hardly buy any books....only the amazing ones.), but I would reread it again and recommend it to others. It's just a good message, one everyone should hear.

P.S. - This isn't a book you read for the theology, either. Actually, don't even pay attention to the theology. It's a book, truly a fictional story to illustrate a few poignant points. Don't nitpick. Go with it.
