“The Final Summit” By Andy Andrews (A Review)


The Final Summit: A Quest to Find the One Principle That Will Save Humanity by Andy Andrews isn’t a decent book and so it was rather difficult for me to want to read.  The book appears to be headed one direction at the beginning and then takes a total different course.  Throughout the book it is clear that the author is stabbing at a few principles like “debt is for dummies” and then later something about a pre-flood super race of people.   It is clear that there is a barb there somewhere, but it is difficult to grasp where Andy is really aiming.

I don’t want to give away the plot, the central them of the book was to give a two word answer to the angel Gabriel on what humanity needs to do in order to not be wiped out again like in the flood.  I was really hoping for a great answer in the end like “trust Jesus,” but the author had a more man-centered answer.  Needless to say, at the climax of the book I was highly disappointed.

Now to rant for just a second.  I wish the author would have given as much attention to the theological themes with which he meddles as he did the historical themes that are present throughout the book.  I was a fan of Andy Andrews, I’m not a fan of this book, now I’m rethinking the whole being a fan of Andy Andrews thing.

The retail price of The Final Summit is $19.99 (hardcover), and is available around the web in places like Amazon.com for $10.86.  I gave it two stars.
