In George's Marvellous Medicine, published in 1981, George Kranky's Grandma may not anticipate the results of the medicine fed to her by her grandson, but like George, Roald Dahl also had fun mixing marvellous concoctions. He called them witches potions and delivered them to his children just before bedtime. They included ingredients like tinned peaches blended with milk and either pink, blue.
This is a marvelous collection of essays, immensely readable, immensely wise. Most of the essays are in some way literary, either about Berry's own imagination and art or about a handful of the writers who have meant the most to him. As often is the case with essays by writers on other writers, we are doubly blessed: we gain insight not only into the writers about which Berry deeply cares (he.Buy God in the Dock: Essays on Theology and Ethics Reprint by Lewis, C.

These essays, reviews, forewords, and adapted lectures, written between 1978 and 1995, add to the fine collections of his work. Included here are a number of essays first printed in the literary journal Salmagundi, forewords to the new Everyman's editions of the Hebrew Bible, Kierkegaard, and Kafka's The Trial, and reviews for the TLS. The mix makes for an occasionally unfocussed collection.
God in the Dock contains forty-eight essays and twelve letters written by Lewis between 1940 and 1963. Ranging from popular newspaper articles to learned defenses of the faith, these pieces cover topics as varied as the logic of theism, 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.
