Abstract

"The mind of the maker and the Mind of the Maker are formed on the same pattern, and all their works are made in their own image." Dorothy Sayers goes to great lengths to expose a Christian view of creativity. Seen from a First Testament perspective, Sayer's ideas conform closely to human kingship originally intended by God; the vestigates of the robes remain.

In this paper I will seek to intersect Sayer's views of The Creator, the creature, creation, and creativity with the biblical-cultural connections in Genesis 1. What does it mean to be made in God's image in the ancient Near Eastern world? How does the answer to that question establish Sayer's essential work The Mind of the Maker? Why must The Church return to the Hebraic viewpoint of creativity as surmised by Sayers and found in Genesis?
