Though "theologically" you cannot take this account literally, there is still much to be learned as you read this book of fiction. Readers were first introduced to David Ponder in the book, The Traveler's Gift, as he traveled through time to obtain the "Seven Decisions" from some of these same historical figures. Though it may give you a better understanding of the main character, it is not necessary to have read this book first.
The Final Summit can be read fairly quickly and drew me in as I read it. I found it fascinating that though the words spoken by these historical figures were for the most part fictional, Andy Andrews researched them so thoroughly that the words they spoke in the book seemed believable. Though I do wish it pointed more to the real solution that restores our pathway to successful civilization, Jesus Christ, I still would recommend this book. Those who love history will especially enjoy it.
