Overview

Dolphins radiate with a freedom and simplicity that most humans long for. In his new book, The Porpoise-Given Life, Inspiration from the Cetacean Nation, pastor and punster Chris Hughes explores life through a dolphin's eyes. Weaving biblical truth and ecological insight, Hughes offers thoughtful perspectives on challenging global issues such as poverty and hunger, clean water, and the interconnectedness of our terrestrial ecosystem. Life is about more than being driven. Hughes' engaging postmodern counterpoint to The Purpose-Driven Life invites readers to embrace living with passionate purpose and joy, and provides countless fresh and fun ideas for joining in God's ongoing work of bringing good news to the creation. Each chapter is followed by a sampling of collective wisdom for a wide variety of voices and a feature called The Reflecting Pool that includes reflective questions, experiential activities, and a simple breath prayer.

Editorial Reviews

Leonard Sweet
Read The Porpoise-Given Life and your mouth will fill up with one of the best sounds in the world: laughter. Am I the only one out there who wants to die laughing? - Dr. Leonard Sweet, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism, Drew Theological School.
Marcia McFee
Punster Chris Hughes knows that metaphoraging is holy play...This book provides fun yet soul-quenching waters in which to play around with porpoise-given ideas. Reflection questions and activities are provocative, resulting in a 'whale-of-a-good-experience' for individuals and groups. - Marcia McFee, Worship Consultant and author of The Worship Workbook.
Scott Taylor
Chris Hughes playfully fuses his love of dolphins and the teaching of the Bible in this helpful book. By exploring the wisdom of the dolphins and how they live and thrive in the oceans, he invites us to consider how they might model for us a better way of living...I highly recommend this book for all who seek to live wisely and joyfully. - Scott Taylor, Executive Director, The Cetacean Studies Institute
