Notable and Quotable (II)

Posted by Kendall Harmon

One day when George MacDonald, the great Scottish preacher and writer, was talking with his son, the conversation turned to heaven and the prophets' version of the end of all things. "It seems too good to be true," the son said at one point. A smile crossed MacDonald's whiskered face. "Nay," he replied, "It is just so good it must be true!"

--as quoted in Philip Yancey, Disappointment With God
