Overview


"C. S. Lewis struck me as the most thoroughly converted man I ever met," observes Walter Hooper in this book's preface. "His whole vision of life was such that the natural and the supernatural seemed inseparably combined."

God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963. Ranging from popular newspaper articles to learned defenses of the faith, these pieces cover topics as varied as the logic of theism, good and evil, miracles, the role of women in the church, and ethics and politics. Many represent Lewis's first ventures into themes he would later treat in full-length books.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

-- The New York Times
"Here the reader finds the tough-minded polemicist relishing the debate; here too the kindly teacher explaining a complex abstraction by means of clarifying analogies; here the public speaker addressing his varied audience with all the humility and grace of a man who knows how much more remains to be known."

-- Christianity Today
"For those who know little of C. S. Lewis or his ideas, this book is a good introduction. . . . God in the Dock contains some of the best of Lewis's witty apologetics. And for those who have long known and loved the writings of Lewis, this volume is a welcome addition."

-- Commonweal
"Takes us on a journey that is thoroughly entrancing. . . . A model of solid common sense and imaginativeness, of balance and ingeniousness, of artistry and coherence."
