S4 05. The Shocking Dorothy Sayers With Crystal Downing

Share Episode


Crystal Downing joins us this week to talk about the 20th-century Christian author, Dorothy Sayers. Crystal is Co-Director of the Marion E. Wade Center at Wheaton College, where scholars research, write about, and preserve the memorabilia of a handful of British writers—including a few members of the Inklings. Though Dorothy Sayers wasn’t an Inkling herself, she was friends with many of them and was a major spiritual influence on C.S. Lewis. Dorothy was not afraid to challenge people, including both Christians and the nonreligious. Crystal’s book Subversive: Christ, Culture, and the Shocking Dorothy L. Sayers is a wonderful introduction to this interesting woman.
