The author addresses the question "Why is religious drama so often bad drama?" by contrasting plays where religious themes develop naturally from the actions of the characters with those that are overtly doctrinaire or didactic. The author discusses works by T. S. Eliot, Christopher Fry, Graham Greene, Dorothy Sayers, Philip Turner, and Charles Williams.
