by C.S. Lewis
The work of C.S. Lewis has become synonymous with modern Christian apologetics. Dubbed the "apostle to the skeptics," Lewis was a profound thinker with the rare ability to communicate the truths of the Christian faith in simple yet amazingly effective ways. Insightful, engaging, and often full of wit, his books are models of genuine Christianity expressed in brilliant contemporary prose.
God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963. Ranging from popular newspaper pieces to learned defenses of the faith, these essays cover topics as varied as the logic of atheism, 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. Characterized by Lewis's honesty and realism, his insight and conviction, and above all his thoroughgoing commitments to Christianity, these essays make God in the Dock very much a book for our time.
"Lewis struck me as the most thoroughly converted man I ever met. Christianity was never for him a separate department of life...His whole vision of life was such that the natural and the supernatural seemed inseparably combined." Walter Hooper (from the Preface)
"These two characteristics in Lewisthe searching mind and the poetic spiritare readily evident...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." New York Times Book Review
