Front cover

We are very pleased to announce the publication of this revised edition of John Thurmer's book, which has been unobtainable for many years. This very thorough revision is now complemented with several articles which further develop the theme.

'Her greatest philosophical and Christian insight arose out of the detective story': In this observation Canon John Thurmer makes his most original comment on the unity of thought of Dorothy L. Sayers. ―Barbara Reynolds

Fascinating in its drawing together some biblical themes often overlooked, the thinking of Dorothy l. Sayers and some of the strands of traditional theology. ―Archbishop Michael Ramsey in the earlier 1984 edition

It is certainly not a detective novel in the usual sense and there is no question of discovering the equivalent of "who-dunnit". Rather it is a "real life search for eternal truths and includes a considerable study of the thinking of DLS with special reference to The Mind of the Maker. ―Catherine Aird 1984
