Dorothy Sayers on G.K.C.

“TO the young people of my generation, G.K.C. was a kind of Christian liberator. Like a beneficent bomb, he blew out of the Church a quantity of stained glass of a very poor period, and let in gusts of fresh air in which the dead leaves of doctrine danced with all the energy and indecorum of Our Lady’s Tumbler.”

~Dororthy L. Sayers: Preface to Chesterton’s play The Surprise, London, 1952.
