Review:

-- 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."

Review:

‘To pick up and read a bit of C.S. Lewis is always rather like opening a window in a stuffy room.’
Owen Barfield

‘…consists of some brilliant pieces. This is just the kind of book to put in the hands of an intellectual doubter…
Christian Herald
