British novelist and playwright Dorothy L. Sayers, best known for her Lord Peter Wimsey detective novels, possessed the unique combination of keen theological sense, tremendous writing skill, and a deep concern with how ordinary people understand Christian life. She stands, along with C. S. Lewis, among the most vigorous and popular twentieth-century defenders of Christianity for her work in relating theological themes to everyday concerns.

Creed without Chaos performs a service for readers by providing a careful introduction to Sayers's writings from a theological rather than a literary perspective. Laura Simmons further provides a powerful argument for Sayers's continuing relevance to the church.
