I don't think the really FINAL decision has been announced, but the assumption appears to be that we are going with Ascending the Heights. However, if Nicodemus is the leader of the pack, I would be in favor if his making a decision based on the outcome of the poll in the context of his won sense of wisdom, knowledge, and intuitive perceptions. I mean, if he thinks that reading The Ladder itself, rather than a book about the Ladder, would be the path of wisdom, I'd be happy to accept that decision. On the other hand, depending on how much authority we invest in Nicodemus, he might say the poll is valuable, but he'd prefer to read the book with 3 votes rather than the one with 4 votes. It's a close vote after all. Or perhaps we ought to ask those NOT voting for Ascending or the Path to Salvation, to vote again, and help choose between the two titles with the largest vote.
But, actually, I'd just prefer any book to be named, so we can get on with it.
The real challenge will be, with any book, how many of us can find the time to read and think and write on a regular schedule.
