There is nothing good to be found in The Final Summit. The theology behind this book is wrong and since it is touted as a Christian book, nothing else really matters.
Where does this book fail? A more appropriate question would be, where doesn’t it fail?
Sinful men throughout the ages, many of whom weren’t true believers, are called together to help find a solution to mankind’s problems? News alert: God really is God and as such is great and powerful and all-sufficient and doesn’t need our “help” in any way, shape, form or fashion. He certainly wouldn’t call on non-believers. This idea is wrong on so many levels that I can’t count then all.
Gabriel, the Archangel, engages in sinful behavior? Wrong. Wouldn’t, couldn’t, happen.
King David, the man after God’s own heart, touting self-discipline as the solution to mankind’s problems? So, so sad that anyone who calls himself a Christian would write such anti-biblical garbage.
Worldly success makes you great in God’s eyes? “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:” Matthew 20: 27
Worst of all? Jesus is ignored completely except as being referred to as “The Boss’ Son”.
Mankind is elevated. Human potential touted. God needs us. Jesus is ignored. Bad. Just plain bad.
Where is the exaltation of God Almighty? Where is repentance? Where is death to self? Where is our need for God? Where is mankind’s sinfulness truly dealt with? Nowhere.
Theological problems with The Summit are numerous and blatant. Sadly, someone of weak or new faith could be seriously hurt by it. Anybody serious about God and His Word will be sickened by it.
The Summit is nothing but humanistic thinking tied up in an ugly bow and presented as a Christian book.
Save your money, your time and your stomach and stay away from this one.
I was provided with a free copy of this book by BookSneeze for purposes of review. I was not required to give a favorable review, simply an honest one.
