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.

Review quote

I have been travelling internationally for 45 years. I wish I'd been able to read this book years ago - it would certainly have made me travel more thoughtfully: it's a travelogue; it's theology; it's cultural education; it's mission challenge all rolled into one. A fascinating read. -- Peter Maiden, International Director Emeritus of Operation Mobilization and former Chairman of Keswick Ministries How will you spend your summer or gap year? In this unusual travelogue we're invited to reflect on First-world problems and real choices. This could be a good way to oil your thinking and your praying. -- Julia Cameron, writer and editor; author of Oxford and Cambridge Reformation Walking Tour Loved it! What a marvellous journey through the stories of Scripture (and the author's life) that will challenge, encourage and widen your perspective, not only on travel, but also on the amazing One who created it all. In a world where it is easier than ever to work or study abroad, this book deserves to be widely read. -- Sinead Norman, Ministry Administrator at International Fellowship of Evangelical Students Peter Grier gives us excellent, fresh ideas for honouring God with our travels, and helps shape perspective on mission, tourism and the meaningful welcoming of international students. -- Alan Tower, National Director of Friends International Grier not only invites us to accompany him on his travels and employ all of our senses - to taste, smell, feel, hear, see and dream, but ultimately to discover who we are and whose we are. He exhorts us to keep wandering, but not aimlessly, keep journeying, but not selfishly, and ultimately to keep walking with our hearts orientated towards our heavenly home and our loving Lord. A must read for those with itchy feet or home-birds alike! -- Hollie Tagle, CUI Team Leader for International Student Ministry * E-mail *
