About the Author
Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) was an English writer best known for her crime novels, poems and short stories. She grew up in a small village and attended boarding school before receiving a scholarship to Somerville College, Oxford. Sayers graduated in 1915 and published her first collection of poetry OP. I in 1916. Years later, she began working on the crime story Whose Body?, which would become her most celebrated work. It features the introduction of amateur detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, who appears in more than 10 of her novels.
Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

With the growing interest in Sayers studies, this is a timely and helpful volume.--Ethics & Culture
Sayers' detective stories are still bringing great enjoyment--and the uplifting contact with a brilliant and wise mind--to millions; and those who know her apologetic works have the added advantage of her more explicit thoughts on the faith.... Plough is helping revive those works for a new audience, and by tying them to her fiction, showing that the light of Christ shines through them all.--Mere Orthodoxy
Scholarly and quietly poetic.... Vanderhoof arranges Sayers' writings in a subtle crescendo, culminating in her commentary on art and Christianity. To an age that views religion--especially Christianity--as irrational and oppressive, Sayers makes a critical case for reassessment.--The Remembered Arts Journal
Carole Vanderhoof highlights Sayers' thinking on themes like pride, belief, and envy... With bracing wit, Sayers continues to entertain and challenge.--WORLD Magazine
