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 climate change, poverty and hunger, and clean water. Hughes' engaging postmodern counterpoint to The Purpose-Driven Life invites followers of Jesus 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.

Review:

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, a way more closely aligned with the Scriptures. I highly recommend this book for all who seek to live wisely and joyfully. --Scott Taylor, Founder and Executive Director of the Cetacean Studies Institute and author of Souls in the Sea

Too many followers of Jesus look like they've been born in crab-apple season. Chris Hughes has produced a firecracker of a book to throw into every crowd of cranky, contentious, humorless Christians. Read The Porpoise-Given Life, and many times 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? --Leonard Sweet, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism, Drew Theological School, Visiting Distinguished Professor, George Fox University

Chris Hughes tosses science and spirituality into a blender and pours out a cosmic cocktail guaranteed to make you smile. --Rev. Howard Hanger, Pastor, The Jubilee Community, Asheville, North Carolina
