C. S. Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the philosophical and theological rationale of Christianity in simple yet amazingly effective ways. God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 for a wide variety of publications. Ranging from popular newspaper pieces to learned defenses of the faith, these essays cover topics as varied as the logic of theism, good and evil, miracles, vivisection, the role of women in church polity, and ethics and politics. Many of these writings represent Lewis's first ventures into themes he would later treat in full-length books.

About the Author:

CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and was educated at Oxford. From 1955 to 1963 he was professor of medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Cambridge. His prolific published works include influential literary criticism, classic science fiction and fantasy, and a number of exceptional theological books.

Review:

"[Both Lewis's] searching mind and [his] poetic spirit are readily evident....Here the reader finds the tough-minded polemicist relishing the debate; here, too, the kindly teacher explaining the cosmic extraction by means of clarifying analogies...with all the humility and grace of a man who knows how much more remains to be known." --New York Times Book Review
