Book Review: The Final Summit

Andy Andrews has quickly become one of my favorite story-tellers.  The Noticer was the first book of his that I got my hands on.  In the midst of enjoying a story that sucks you in until you finish the book, I found myself deeply challenged.  Rarely does fiction have that power, but it does when Andy has the pen.

The same is true of his latest book, The Final Summit.

In the spirit of its New York Times bestselling predecessor, The Traveler’s Gift, The Final Summit explores the historically proven principles that have guided our greatest leaders for centuries. Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.

My favorite part about this story is the wisdom that is shared from leaders throughout time.  It’s a perfect blend of story and substance.

**The best part is that I have two copies to giveaway!  I will randomly select two individuals.

    Gandhi is my favorite historical leader, because he transformed a nation through peaceful means. He stood against injustice in the face of violence. He believed in the rightness of his convictions and tried to live by those convictions.

    I have a hard time choosing just one historical leader to be my favorite. There are almost countless number of years of leaders to look back on. I love all the stories of George Washingtons, Winston Churchills, Harriet Tubmans, Martin Luthers, and so so many others. For this, I will narrow it down to Esther. Even though she was reluctant at first (as we all tend to be), she trusted in God and saved her people. Love her story and how she was placed as queen “for such a time as this.” What are our “for such a time as this” times?

    Favorite leader from history would be Churchill: cool under pressure (at least publicly), determined, clear vision. Focused on results, not glory.

    Bobbie Houston who leads women’s conferences across the world has always inspired me with the way she leads through just being an open vessel. Also Christine Caine who founded the A21 campaigns.

    maybe my problem is that I can’t really tell you about someone in history, outside of Jesus, the apostles and the martyrs, that has made them my favorite leader. I think I need to know more history.

    In my eyes the most historian person was my dad, cause he made me feel very special all the time while he was alive. Jenn I know you wanted someone from the history books. Of course there is one other person, of course that would be God himself but he is still alive today, but he has done amazing things.

    Abe Lincoln. He was an authentic leader who stood strong for the things he valued no matter the price.

    Queen Rania. What she is doing within the middle eastern countries for women. Now, imagine if the Lord got a hold of her.
