A good quotation states an insight so shrewdly that not only do you get it, but you can't seem to forget it. It loves to make you slow down and savor truth. These neat little extended metaphors deserve to be heard, examined, and challenged.
Quotations present truth in capsule form. Many reflect the wisdom of earlier times; others bring insights that are fresh and contemporary. Some support the status quo; others challenge it.
So They Say is a collection of more than seventy quotes, along with author Robert Mounce's reflections on how they relate to the real world. This interaction turns out to be a battle of worldviews, for as Mounce explains, he could never embrace philosophical materialism because his experience of reality demands something outside of “stuff”--he wants to know where the DNA of the very first living cell came from, and he dissects each quotation accordingly. By approaching each quotation from this supernaturalist point of view, Mounce's So They Say invites you to read, reflect, and enjoy the journey.
