Overview

In twelve plays For broadcasting al monthly intervals. Dorothy L. Sayers drew on material from all four Gospels. keeping the theme of Jesus of Nazareth's divine kingship in focus throughout, while locating him firmly in the social, and political, context of his lime. The first, half cover episodes that precede the final journey to Jerusalem, and the latter half primarily deal with Passion Week themes, It is the simplicity and profundity of Jesus' words in the Fourth Gospel especially dial Savers drew on in her own writing for the "voice" of Jesus "on air." The plays gave her an opportunity to explore the many gospel characters surrounding Jesus, not least, that of Judas. And beyond the utter sorrow of Jesus' death, the king comes into his own in the garden of resurrection.

In this popular play-cycle, Sayers makes the Gospels come alive. "Her Jesus can bring tears to your eyes. You will be deeply moved--a powerful experience."--Sheldon Vanauken, A Severe Mercy.

Meet the Author

Dorothy L. Sayers

Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957), born and educated in Oxford, was an accomplished novelist, poet, playwright, scholar, and Christian apologist. Along with her religious drama, her numerous writings include translations of Dante, detective stories, theological works, and studies of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Biography

Dorothy L. Sayers, the greatest of the golden age detective novelists, was born in Oxford in 1893. She was one of the first women to be awarded a degree by Oxford University and worked as a copywriter in an advertising agency from 1921 to 1932. Her aristocratic detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, became one of the most popular fictional heroes of the twentieth century. Dorothy L. Sayers also became famous for her religious plays, notably The Man Born to be King, which was broadcast controversially during the war years, but she considered her translation of Dante's Divine Comedy to be her best work. She died in 1957.
