God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics
by C. S. Lewis, edited by Walter Hooper.

A collection of essays on, you guessed it, Theology and Ethics by one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century, C. S. Lewis. Wide range of topics, sometimes completely over my head (because the essay was originaly written for a specific audience, to whom it would be appropriate), but most of the time Lewis's ability to make intellectual things plain shines through. Many of the essays are on subjects that have recently become very controvesial (Evil and God, Religion and Science, Religion Without Dogma?, Priestesses in the Church?, Bulverism, The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment, Xmas and Christmas). 340 pages, published by WM. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.
