Length: 163 pages


Peter Grier is a well-traveled man with a passion for seeing people and the world through God’s eyes. He walks readers through God’s vision for travel using the framework of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration.

Using personal stories from his travels as well as biblical stories, Grier shows how travel has been tainted by sin and difficulty, yet also gives us glimpses of the Creator and His wonderful grace. He urges us to examine our motives for travel and where we are trying to seek our identities: in the world or in Christ?

Ultimately, our travels remind us that we are simply passing through and this is not our eternal home. Grier’s hope is that we can be more intentional about our travels and be a light wherever we go, whether it’s on our bucket list or not.

Grier’s voice is fresh and a bit quirky with his Irish roots. His book is enjoyable and a quick read. It’s thought-provoking and reveals the beauty in the broken ruins that make up this world. For those with wanderlust or simply a curiosity to explore, this book is perfect for any Christian who desires to know God and His world more.

One Response to “Travel: In Tandem with God’s Heart”

  1. sounds good, do we travel to widen our minds or to fulfill a desire only, when it comes to the worlds we use to denote of belief, perhaps it’s time we used the word believer, as it has wider appeal, and brings more into the fold, happy Monday
