By David Jenkins, Crossmap On August 15, 2013
"Duck Dynasty" Uncle Si is known for his legendary quotes, but in the new book, the favorite uncle of the reality show also opened up about his Christian faith.
The season 4 of "Duck Dynasty" has just kicked off Wednesday night on A&E, with a heartwarming episode where Phil and Kay renewed their wedding vows.
As the now famous reality-show, which zooms into the Robertson family and their duck call manufacturing business in Louisiana, is ready to reclaim its reign, Si Robertson revealed the wisdom and secret for the success of the Robertson clan in his book "Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle."

"I talk to people all the time who say, 'you believe in the resurrection of the dead?' Well sure I do. I see it all the time. And they say, 'you're a weirdo.' And I say, I may be, but let me tell you, I see resurrections every spring," Uncle Si said in a LifeWay promotion video for his book.
"During the winter time, everything is dead looking and dull looking, OK. Hang around here and wait a month, or month and-a-half, [and] dull, dead looking trees without leaves and all that – you'll drive to work one day, and then, hey, there is an explosion of life like you have not seen lately. The good thing about that is, hey, that's what He promises people who believe in His son," Uncle Si continues.
"Just like He raised His son from the dead, He promises that if you believed in His son, He will raise you from the dead. And look, that's what we're banking on. That's what all the Robertsons are banking on."
“I wonder when people run into bad times, when they go to the doctor and they find out, ‘I’m dying of cancer,’ and they don’t believe in God, who do they turn to?” Si Robertson questioned.
“We are all mortal. We are all going in that grave. There ain’t but one way you gonna beat it.”
“Like Phil always tells them, ‘If you’ve got something to offer me better than I just shared with you, I’m all ears,’” Uncle Si says.
Jesus “beat the grave, and he promises you that since he beat it, if you believe in him, he’ll make you beat it.”
Uncle Si credits everything to God, including the Robertson family's humor and Duck Dynasty's undeniable success. Back in April, "Duck Dynasty" Season 3 finale garnered a record 9.6 million viewers.
“A lot of people say, ‘Hey, God doesn’t have a sense of humor.’ Yes, he does. God has a great sense of humor. Look at me. Look at Phil. Look at Willie. Look at Jase,” says Si.
“God has taken four guys that look like five miles of muddy road and made them famous in the TV world.”
“The Almighty is the one who has made this a success,” he continued.
