Praise for "Curious"

Now Featured in the Patheos Book Club
The Unexpected Power of a Question-Led Life
by Tom Hughes

"Growth and understanding are both led by questions. Yet curious students are often seen as bothersome, naive or even disloyal, as if they exceeded some unspoken quota. Tom Hughes, in his insightful book Curious, shatters the false paradigm and invites us to a deeper understanding with questions that shape our faith and future."

~Wayne Cordeiro, Author, Leading on Empty

"Curiosity is a key trait of a person eager to learn, desirous of truth. Tom Hughes has captured the heart of the Kingdom leadership style Jesus modeled that shaped the disciples, confounded the religious, and drew the seekers. In an age inundated with information, may we never lose the wonder that causes us to ask questions about the things that matter most."

~Tammy Dunahoo, General Supervisor, The Foursquare Church

"When I receive a new book, the first question I ask is, 'Why should I read this?' Which, according to Curious, is the right question to ask. And here is my response: Because Tom Hughes has brilliant insights that will help us more consequentially impact the world. Don't ask, just read."

~Greg Nettle, President, Stadia Global Church Planting

"This book is full of wisdom and freedom! Every leader will walk away with a fresh new perspective that will enable them to not only endure the test of time but do it with lasting joy and purpose."

~Tommy Walker, Worship Leader

"Tom has done something a really important with Curious. He has lifted the lid on the way Jesus taught. Jesus was a rabbi, and he used a rabbinical 'question and answer' model to help people understand the truth. In this marvelous book Tom Hughes has elucidated this method for contemporary Christians. And he's done it in a way that we can all understand! You don't need to be a pastor or theologian to read this book; anyone with a bit of commitment can discover the huge treasury of spiritual truth found within."

~Mike Breen, Founder and Global Leader, 3DMovements

"This deeply insightful and creative book by Tom Hughes is, I believe, a resource that comes to us directly from the guiding hand of the Holy Spirit! It is not every day that we see such inspired, God-driven works—a tool that echoes and highlights for us the very character traits of Jesus. He who asked the questions that generated life-bearing promise continues to do so in our lives. Those who remain sensitive and alert to His penetrating inquiries will reap the rewards of promised fruitfulness. This book helps lead the way!"

~Glenn C. Burris Jr., President, The Foursquare Church

"If you want to really screw up in leadership, act like you've got it all figured out. If you want to put yourself in the place to lead successfully, read this book!"

~Tim Harlow, Pastor, Parkview Church, Chicago

"In a world where so many seek to offer neatly wrapped answers, we desperately need to rediscover the simple power of the question. In his brilliant Curious, Tom Hughes explores how humble, question-led faith, life, and leadership bring us a depth and integrity that easy platitudes are too insecure to reach."

~Jo Saxton, Chair of 3DMovements
