"Dorothy Sayers was one of the bright stars of the Anglo-Catholic literary firmament in England. . . . Among Sayers's great gifts was the ability to show the light orthodox Christian doctrine sheds on both artistic 'making' and the everyday 'doing' for which we need ethics in a workaday world. Christine Fletcher's typically robust yet engaging study succeeds brilliantly in demonstrating for a new generation what Sayers was about."
"Professor Fletcher has written in an engaging style about a neglected dimension of the contribution of Dorothy L. Sayers to serious thinking about work (demolishing some myths about gender on the way). Moreover, she confidently displays Sayers's theological versatility in being at once faithful to the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, while illuminating it for the meaning of work, so central to the lives of human beings."

"Karl Barth was right: Dorothy Sayers was one of the best and most lucid lay theologians of the twentieth century, especially on that difficult topic of the Trinity. Christine Fletcher has not only given us a book on Sayers that is as clear and as illuminating as the books by her subject; she has also done something more: she has given us a practical theology. This is a book one can actually put to work."
