I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with Dorothy Sayers, but did you know that “When Dorothy L. Sayers died, C.S. Lewis wept.”? This is the opening line of Dr. Crystal Downing’s latest book, Subversive: Christ, Culture, and the Shocking Dorothy L. Sayers. Dr. Downing will be our guest speaker and give a talk about her book in which she explores how Sayers, a Christian scholar (and famous mystery novelist), sought to discover “new conclusions on unchanging foundations” of modern Christianity.
Crystal Downing is Co-Director of the Marion E. Wade Center and co-holder of the Marion E. Wade Chair in Christian Thought at Wheaton College: a position she shares with her husband, David C. Downing. You can read more about her here: https://www.wheaton.edu/
