The Paradoxical Commandments have been quoted around the world for decades. It all started when Kent Keith first articulated the ten timeless principles when he was a college student in the 1960s, and then put them into book form in the classic Anyway. His modern credo for finding personal meaning in the face of adversity became a sensation.
Now the author returns to present an important and inspiring new book illustrating the Paradoxical Commandments through Bible stories and verses. In Jesus Did It Anyway, Keith draws from the Old and New Testaments, the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, and personal experiences to demonstrate how the Paradoxical Commandments are grounded in Scripture and the Christian faith.
