The Porpoise Diving Life

I told you a few weeks ago about the incredible Gary Smith article in Sports Illustrated about Pat Tillman, the former NFL linebacker turned soldier who died in Afghanistan. In the recent issue of SI someone wrote a letter in reference to Tillman’s “purpose-driven” life.

For all those who critique the “purpose-driven” language, particularly of Rick Warren’s book and church, he is still one Christianity’s best current spokespersons, and Calvin Miller told me recently in an interview that what he says when national magazines ask him questions about religion or politics or world events are typically precient.

But for the subversive who enjoy panning popular phrases and concepts, here is The Porpoise Diving Life web site

  1. Dear Bill,

    Your title is a good humored play on words of a popular book. Your subtitle suggests to me that there is another reality much different than purpose driven thinking and that your site picks up where purpose driven is inadequate (peters out). Even in the interview of yourself you anticipate someone might think your title/subtitle is a tongue in cheek jab. And to be fair, your answer is that it’s not . . . I’ve read parts of your site, clearly. 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Bill.
