Loving the Creation, Loving the Creator:
Dorothy L. Sayers's Theology of Work

William H. Harrison

Central to Sayers's theology is the claim that we are called to be co-creators with God. Therefore, work must be understood as a participation in the reign of God and the value of our work defined by the quality of the product. To think of work solely as something that we do to survive or obtain wealth is to misconstrue our calling, overlook the importance of Christ's redemptive work, and commit ourselves to the destructive, matrialist ethics of captitalism and socialism.
