Several months ago, I read Andy Andrews’ book The Final Summit, which is a follow-up to The Traveler’s Gift. I enjoyed reading The Final Summit and had great intentions of reading The Traveler’s Gift, but just had not taken the time to do it. My daughter recently read it and just went on and on about how much she liked it. Knowing she had a copy of the book made it easy for me to finally read through it myself. I’m glad I finally did.
The Traveler’s Gift tells the story of David Ponder and a crisis he comes to in his life. As he struggles to find answers to his problems, he is given the opportunity to meet several historical figures and learn various principles from them.
***For those who may be reading this and haven’t read the book, I don’t want to give away much of what happens in the book, including the individuals that Ponder meets and the principles these people share. It is worth reading on your own without knowing what is coming.***
I will say that The Traveler’s Gift very quickly draws the reader into the story. It is roughly 200 pages long and I completed it in a 48 hour period. Once you start reading, you want to see what happens in the coming chapters.
The principles shared in the book are excellent. One of the things I enjoyed about it was hearing my daughter’s reaction to some of the things in the book and how it applies to her life as a high school student. I could make application to my life as well . . . as a person a few years (or so) removed from high school.
It would be worth your time to read The Traveler’s Gift.
