Reviews - What do customers think about Jesus Did It Anyway: The Paradoxical Commandments for Christians?
Jesus Did It Anway... so should we. Oct 25, 2006
We are actually reading this book together in our Sunday School class. As one of the teachers in the class, I have picked up reading the book in a myriad of places and each time I do... a conversation about its content is sure to follow. Whether on a plane, at Starbucks or having a chat with my sister, the book has proved facinating. I have given away 2 of my personal copies already. Toaday I am actually just finishing my 3rd order online. I believe this book will help us as Christians change the world one person at a time. You really need to read this book... and make sure you give it away when your finished reading it.
Becoming more Christ-like Mar 30, 2006
I am always looking for new and inspiring ways to improve my life. I found Kent Keith's message in his new book very influencing. If more people were to follow these "commandments", the world would be a kinder place in which to live. This book brought to mind the things we can do to becoming more Christ-like. It was easy to read and I liked the examples from Christ's life that helped to solidify the "commandment" in my mind.
Magnifent message but ... Mar 29, 2006
I believe the message in this book is certainly one if we lived by it the world would be a better place. I think many of us have seen the sayings the Author outlines as his around for some time actually I have seen it attributed to Mother Teresa before and this Author says he wrote them in college. Who know's and Mother Teresa wouldnt care anyway. Just had a strange ring to it when written in that context that 'they're mine' not hers. But ... the message is something we should all live by.
Publishers Weekly is right - Mar 28, 2006
The book is a great introduction to Christian Scripture. It provides a practical, interesting way of understanding the great stories and teachings of the Bible. I'm not a regular church-goer, and I'm not sure I would call myself religious, but this book is straight forward and makes sense of the Bible and the teachings of Jesus in a way that I have never seen before, inviting us to live the paradoxical life that Jesus did.
Guideline for Discipleship Feb 11, 2006
The practical application of Christianity to one's personal life has always been a challenge for the followers of Jesus. In "Jesus Did It Anyway", Kent Keith articulates with clarity and inspiration a straight-forward guide to living the Christian faith. While doctrine is foundational, the paradoxical commandments quickly go beyond belief to the essential qualities of Christian discipleship. These basic principles are taught by all faiths and Kent Keith's words encourage us to work cooperatively toward justice and happiness in our communities.
