Travel Mercies (ebook)


Travel Mercies
Reflections from the Road Called Life

Soo-Inn Tan

Only those who suffer deeply and redemptively can walk the canyon floor alongside our depressions and afflictions. So this book provides good company and is a good guide through the disappointments, frustrations, and grief of our mortality. Yet the central message of this honest and indeed transparent book is that by God’s grace, in whatsoever state we’re in, there are lessons to learn that “godliness with contentment is great gain”.… When we speak from our lives personally, we share far more than we realise would ever be appreciated by others. Indeed, when I apologize “this is most intimately Me”, it turns out to be “most universally You!” I hope you will find this is true of Travel Mercies, as I have found it to be for myself. Enjoy your reading!

About Graceworks


I have said that Soo-Inn is the C.S. Lewis of Asia, but in fact, his translations of philosophical, theological concepts into the stuff of life today makes his thinking transcend geography. He’s a teacher for all of us!

Each week I anticipate Soo-Inn’s ‘E-Commentary’ which always challenges me to be an authentic follower of Christ. I now anticipate the second volume of his insightful comments, which, like the first, will consistently encourage believers to allow the gospel to make sense of daily, relevant, and hard issues.

Travel Mercies reveals Soo-Inn’s spirituality and his walk with God. It is a spirituality that has been forged through brokenness and pain. I have never found Soo-Inn pretending that his Christian faith is soaring like eagles all the time. In fact, on many occasions, I have witnessed his struggles, and yet he has clung on to God and to God’s community. His quest for deeper answers, his questioning of life’s issues, together with his search for a compassionate and authentic community have brought him to a refreshing discovery — that there are mercies of God and the kindness of people in this journey of faith. It is best summed up in a Hebrew word — Hesed.
