Dorothy Sayers

In my sermon of 9/23, I quoted Dorothy Sayers’s famous statement: “the dogma is the drama.”  This is the article from which the statement is taken.  A review of her life’s work can be found here. 

From the article, “The Greatest Drama Ever Staged:”

“So that is the outline of the official story—the tale of the time when God was the underdog and got beaten, when he submitted to the conditions he had laid down and became a man like the men he had made, and the men he had made broke him and killed him. This is the dogma we find so dull—this terrifying drama of which God is the victim and hero. If this is dull, then what, in Heaven’s name, is worthy to be called exciting?”
