About the Book: “From December 1941 until October 1942, the BBC broadcast a series of twelve radio dramas written by Dorothy L. Sayers, presenting numerous episodes in the life and ministry of Jesus.
In this new critical and annotated edition, scholar Kathryn Wehr brings fresh insights to the plays, their background, Sayers's creative process, and the ongoing significance of the life of Christ today. Come hear the story of the man who was born to be—and still is—king.” (InterVarsity Press)
