Blog Tour (Day 7): Pilgrimage to Somewhere

Hi, friends! Welcome to the seventh instalment in the God’s Grand Game blog tour. Today’s contribution is a concise but fantastically well written review by a relatively new blogger named Logan Noland, who writes on his website Pilgrimage to Somewhere.

I really appreciate Logan’s kind, thoughtful, and open-minded review. I also love the way he has structured his review. Logan doesn’t agree with the main premise of the book (my belief that God is animating and controlling all activity in existence), but still finds value in the vision I present.

I will say no more, as I don’t want to introduce spoilers, but will simply invite you over to Logan’s blog where you can read the review:

Read Logan Noland’s review of God’s Grand Game

It’s worth pointing out that although Logan understood my view of God to be quite severe, in God’s Grand Game I do explain that I believe God always brings good out of even the worst experiences in life, so I certainly wouldn’t describe God as intrinsically cruel. I do believe He has the capacity to be cruel, but the evidence to me suggests that He ultimately chooses love and mercy for all sentient beings (at least, this is what I hope).

That’s all for today! Have you had a chance to pick up a copy of God’s Grand Game yet? The book is available in various formats from a range of popular retailers, and is eligible for Amazon Prime. For all the details concerning the book’s availability, click the following link:

There are only three episodes of the blog tour left! Thanks so much for sticking with me. Tomorrow’s piece will come courtesy of Ashley Tanner, a very interesting blogger who recently left the fundamentalist religion into which she was born and raised. As well as living a busy married life with four children, Ashley blogs at Yellow Poppies.

Wishing all readers of Perfect Chaos a wonderful day, and if you’re new around here, a very warm welcome!

Peace and blessings,

  1. I always appreciate reviewers who review books seriously. The book seems interesting but I think my view of God is not quite like the general public sees it.

    1. Hi Jessica! I agree — much respect to Logan for reviewing the book thoughtfully! I think there are so many varying views of God among members of the general public (even within Christianity). My perspective is certainly not mainstream, so you’re not alone!

      1. I’m sure you’re not, this post alone says it 😀 but not being in the stream doesn’t make one person wrong. No one can really say what views are wrong and right. For me that’s the exciting part, to discover and share and maybe one day find our answers. I hope I can read your book one day so that I too can share my opinion about it.

        1. I very much agree! I’m so convinced that there is truth in my worldview, to the extent that I spend my life sharing and writing about it. I honestly believe I have something important to contribute to the world’s of philosophy and theology, and that’s why I wrote God’s Grand Game. I hope you will be able to read it 🙂 Also, I’m going to read some more of your blog! Thanks again and good to be connected! 🙂

          1. Thank you. I’m not sure however what you’ll find there. I post book reviews but mostly just everyday stuff and other entertainments.

  2. I like this blog tour or hop. It is interesting to read people’s ideas about the same reading, and come up with different impressions.

    1. Oooh don’t like those compatibilists! Haha just kidding, hope you’re able to get your head around the various ‘isms’, Lesley! They are interesting ideas, even if their titles are a little obscure!


      1. I knew I was in for a challenge, Steven. ☺

    1. Hi Lynn! Lovely to hear from you. I hope everything is going well? Thank you so much, but I am really not prolific compared to some writers/creatives! That’s fine with me, though 🙂 Sending you love and prayers 💛xx
