GOD IN THE DOCK by C. S. Lewis (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “[The] two characteristics in Lewis—the searching mind and the poetic spirit—are readily evident….” (New York Times Book Review) God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963 on such topics as good and evil, miracles, theism, vivisection, the role of women in church polity, and ethics and politics. Many represent Lewis’s first ventures into themes later treated in full-length books. Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves. NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-nominated narrator, Ralph Cosham.

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.
