Travel: In Tandem With God's Heart PBBy: Peter Grier
Travel is fun – to state the very obvious. But what if it could be enriching, life-enhancing and lots, lots more? What if that hunger for self-discovery, identity and fulfillment could take you in undreamed-of directions? We live, eat, sleep and dream travel - it's become a booming industry, a top conversation topic and, frankly, an obsession.
But are we really free to roam the world as we wish?
What does God say about travel? Shouldn't we instead be doing evangelism? Where is the clear missionary purpose in all this?The author knows all too well what it is to have caught the wanderlust bug.
He skilfully interweaves his, and others, travelling experiences as he applies the Bible's teaching on this vital subject. Marvel with him at the generosity of our creator God who has given us this amazing world. And learn how to make the most of your travels.
‘How will you spend youur summer or gap year? This could be a good way to oil your thinking and your praying.’ Julia Cameron
‘I have been travelling internationally for 45 years – I just wish I’d been able to read this book a long time ago – it would certainly have made me travel more thoughtfully. It’s a travelogue; it’s theology; it’s cultural education; it’s a challenge to undertake mission . . . A fascinating read.’ Peter Maiden
‘Loved it! What a marvellous journey through Scripture (and the author’s life); it will challenge, encourage and widen your perspective, not only on travel but also on the amazing One who created everything. In a world where it’s easier than ever to work or study abroad, this book deserves to be widely read.’ Sinead Norman
‘Gives us excellent fresh ideas for honouring God with our travels, and helps to shape perspectives on mission, tourism and the meaningful welcoming of overseas students.’ Alan Tower
