The Final Summit by Andy Andrews isn’t at all what I expected. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that this book is a blend between religious, fiction, and history (with a little comedy sprinkled in here and there). I had read another book by this author and it was a serious look at the term “slave” as it relates to the Bible and our lives in Christ. I guess I half expected this to be a non-fiction book like the other.
The Final Summit is so interesting in its concept. It takes real people from history that have made great accomplishments and placed them in a summit with a modern day man who has been chosen to lead this summit of individuals God has chosen over time. You meet people like Winston Churchill and Abraham Lincoln and Andrews combines historical fact from their lives with an interesting twist into this fictional summit in heaven. I really like the concept that Andrews has used….so unlike any other books out there right now.
This book is also a great starting point to realizing where we are as humans in God’s plan and how far we are falling from His will. There are certain truths God has set out in His Word and certain expectations for His people. Realizing that we are falling short of these expectations is the first step in the journey that leads us back in the right path; however, we need to find the answer to the one question that will help us as a human race return to His will.
I’d highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a lighter side of Christian reading (along with a few laughs).
