Like mystery novels?  Have you read the mysteries of Dorothy Sayers?

Dorothy Sayers is a writer often associated with C.S. Lewis and the Inklings, who wrote many books for Christian audiences. She considered her best work to be her translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy.

We recently posed the question of where to start with her mystery novels to David Neuhouser, who is Scholar in Residence at Taylor University’s Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends (and Professor Emeritus at TU). Neuhouser has taught courses on Sayers, Lewis, Wendell Berry and perhaps his favorite, George Macdonald.

Strong Poison: A Lord Peter Wimsey Mystery with Harriet Vane

Start here…

“It is in Strong Poison that Lord Peter first meets Harriet Vane, an author of police fiction. The immediate problem is that she is on trial for her life, charged with murdering her former lover. If Lord Peter does not prove she is innocent, he will lose her before he even persuades her to accept his proposal of marriage. But all the clues point to Harriet as the one who gave Philip Boyes the arsenic that killed him.” (Wikipedia.com)

231217: Mandate to Difference: An Invitation to the Contemporary Church Mandate to Difference: An Invitation to the Contemporary Church

By Walter Brueggemann / Westminster John Knox Press

$5.99 – Save 70%!!!

What role should the church play in the world today? This is the question esteemed theologian Walter Brueggeman strives to answer in his work Mandate to Difference: An Invitation to the Contemporary Church. His most recent collection of essays calls the church to “set itself in tension with the rest of the world.” Instead of drawing inward, Brueggemann asks the church to publicly choose a different way—to “courageously defy political polarization, consumerism, and militarism.” By demonstrating a different way, the church can lead the world forward “and adversaries can be turned to allies and to friends.”Brueggeman is the William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, Georgia.

829541DA: Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories & Prayers - Slightly Imperfect Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories & Prayers – Slightly Imperfect

By Eugene H. Peterson / Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. / Hardback

$6.99 – Save 71%!!!

2009 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit in Spirituality

Just as God used words both to create the world and to give us commandments, we too use words for many different purposes. In fact, we use the same language to talk to each other and to talk to God. Can our everyday speech, then, be just as important as the words and prayers we hear from the pulpit? Eugene Peterson unequivocally says “Yes!”

Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language—he was earthy, not abstract; metaphorical, not dogmatic. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination—“slant” language. In order to witness and teach accurately in Jesus’ name, then, it is important for us to use language the way he did.

027373DA: Creed Without Chaos: Exploring Theology in the Writings of Dorothy L. Sayers Creed Without Chaos: Exploring Theology in the Writings of Dorothy L. Sayers

By Laura K. Simmons / Baker

$5.99 – Save 75%!!!

This elegant and accessible book takes an in-depth look at the life and thought of the brilliant, yet little-known theologian, Dorothy L. Sayers. Author Laura K. Simmons examines Sayers’s thoughts on topics ranging from the incarnation and the Trinity to work ethics and the arts. Simmons does great justice to a woman whose goal was to avoid Christian “slip-slop and fiddle-faddle,” and in doing so, introduces the modern church to a brilliant thinker.

432682: Cloister Talks: Learning from My Friends the Monks Cloister Talks: Learning from My Friends the Monks

By Jon M. Sweeney / Brazos Press

$2.99 – Save 77%!!!

“We can show you how to be quiet, how to listen, but only God can show you the other stuff,” Father Ambrose told Jon Sweeney long ago. “What stuff?” he replied. “You.”This is just one of the many conversations Sweeney shares in Cloister Talks-a series of glimpses into his decades-long friendships with Cistercian and Benedictine monks in various monasteries across the country. The contemplative way embodied by these communal brothers has been the single greatest source of guidance in Sweeney’s journey of faith. Here he shares with poignant honesty the wisdom and insight for everyday living he has gained along the way.

Sweeney’s conversations with monks engage various universal areas of life, including life, death, love, work, play, and spirituality. Readers will emerge with a deeper understanding of this ancient way of Christianity-a much needed antidote to the hurry of contemporary life. The monastics who populate these pages have spent a combined century and a half in their sacred vocation. They hold the keys to many of the things we all yearn for: stillness, solitude, simplicity, contemplation, and clarity of purpose.

226180: The Richness of Augustine: His Contextual and Pastoral Theology The Richness of Augustine: His Contextual and Pastoral Theology

By Mark Ellingsen / Westminster John Knox Press

$7.99 – Save 73%!!!

In an inclusive reading of Augustine, Ellingsen reveals a patterned conceptual richness in Augustine’s thought. He demonstrates that the Augustinian traditions claimed by the Catholic church, the Presbyterian church, and virtually every Protestant denomination all have validity. The Richness of Augustine is a wonderful introduction and a rich ecumenical and historical resource. It is the first introduction that places in focus the significance of Augustine’s African cultural and ethnic roots.
