Synopsis (Goodreads):

David Ponder is back and this time the fate of mankind may be in his hands. David Ponder is in a race against time. He's been chosen by the archangel Gabriel to lead a summit of fellow travelers, using their wisdom and experience to save mankind before all that is known is destroyed. Though reluctant, Ponder soon finds himself traveling to the most unlikely of places to interview the most fascinating of subjects such as Winston Churchill, Joan of Arc, and Abraham Lincoln. Will the group come up with the answer in time? What could possibly be the one action that could turn the tides of history?

The Final Summit is the long-awaited sequel to The Traveler's Gift but will stand alone as its own compelling and important parable with truths for our times.

What I Think:

I didn’t know that this book is actually a sequel to the first book. I picked it with just being interested with the synopsis. The story is actually about a quest of a man named David Ponder, as he is summoned by the great Archangel Gabriel where he gets to meet a lot of interesting and wonderful people throughout history in order to save humanity. The book can be portrayed as a great quest of Christian faith and history. Nevertheless, I like the book as well as the character of David Ponder. His character is quite inspiring with his efforts to study the history while he was on the quest in order to complete his task. The best part would be how they can travel through time! That is super awesome, no? I must say that the story is actually related or can be related to our daily life. It seems like we have to learn about the past, study what went wrong, take it as guidance as we live our life for a better future. The book might have some flaw when there’s a few time I don’t get it much (about bible and all), I felt of because I was disconnected with the characters (as well as the Archangel). But like-wise, the book is great to make us off from the reality (with quite a lot of heavy thinking; maybe it's just me).
