Dorothy Sayers, Creed or Chaos?

June 5, 2016

Yes, I have a few older books by Ms. Sayers, and perhaps my favorite is Creed or Chaos? (1949) The first paragraph is worth quoting: “Official Christianity, of late years, has been having what is known as “bad press.” We are constantly assured that churches are empty because preachers insist too much upon doctrine – “dull dogma,” as people call it. The fact is the precise opposite. It is the neglect of dogma that makes for dullness. The Christian faith is the most exciting drama that ever staggered the imagination of man – and the dogma IS the drama.”
