Many years have passed since David Ponder discovered the Seven Decisions during a divine journey through time. Now 74 years old, Ponder has lost the one thing that mattered to him most—his wife, Ellen. Despite his personal and professional success, he now sits alone at the top of his 55-story high-rise contemplating the unthinkable, just as he did 28 years ago.

However, just as things are looking their darkest, Ponder is informed through divine channels that he is needed now more than ever. This is mankind’s last chance. Millennia of avarice, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward inevitable disaster, and far from its original purpose.

There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship—and it is only two words. Ponder, along with a cast of famous historical figures, must work quickly to discover this solution. The fate of the world rests on their shoulders.

In the spirit of its New York Times best-selling 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.

In David Ponder, Andrews has created a classic hero—a common everyman who has the ability to speak for us all.

Reviews from Pioneers, Frontrunners, Innovators, and Leaders

"Every generation or so, God produces a person who can communicate like no one else.  His words are like cool water to a thirsty civilization.  Andy Andrews is one of the best I have ever seen."

Zig Ziglar

Is it possible to mix C.S. Lewis, Alfred Hitchcock, and Tony Robbins?  THE FINAL SUMMIT is a unique and powerful blend of mystery and suspense and principles and emotional fire.  Wow!  Bring your highlighter to this party.  You'll want to remember every word!

Hal Sutton, PGA Champion

People who don't like to read LOVE Andy Andrews' books.  Think about that for a minute.  Surely, there is no higher praise.

Sandi Patty, Grammy Award-winning recording artist

Have you given up in some area of your life?  If it were possible, would you change something about "the way you are"?  If so, THE FINAL SUMMIT is for you. Read this book now.

Patsy Clairmont, Speaker/Author

THE FINAL SUMMIT draws from the rich deposits of truth in history, science, and religion to remind us once again of our ultimate calling.
