Ms. Sayers, who after years of writing Lord Peter Wimsey mysteries, went on to learn Italian to translate Dante's _La Divina Commedia_, interacts with what she considers one of the fundamental theological issues in Christian theology: "imago dei." What does it mean to be created "in the image of God"? Throughout her book, she considers the issue, showing that the answer, is indeed, perhaps essential to humanity, but not necessarily in the manner often assumed.

Along with George Steiner (_Real Prescences_) and Madeleine L'Engle, Sayers interacts with questions of "sacred" in Creation, and art in secular and sacred schemas.
