This collection of sayings grows directly out of the point where nondiscursive experience meets traditional, discursive theology. Christians who are interested in nondiscursive, or nondual, thought have few practical tools that exist to help them situate themselves and their experiences theologically. An old form of Christian spiritual theology, the "sayings theology," has as its goal to cause one to pause and reflect, which opens the door to invite in nondiscursive thinking. This theology is an explicitly mystical theology because it is not about stating logically what Christians believe about God; it is about meeting God through reflection. As a result, these sayings raise questions more than settle them, creating an openness to meet God. It is this openness which is the most characteristic mark of a mystical theology.
