I was watching John Piper "The Doctrine of Election" video on youtube and he read a C.S. Lewis quote about "the ancient man approaching God as the accused person approaches a judge, but for the modern man the roles are reversed, he's the judge and God is in the dock." Does anyone know what book that is from? Thanks
I have not read it so I am not positive, but I do know that he wrote a book called, "God in the Dock."
According to Wikipedia, Lewis published a collection of essays "GOD in the Dock"which described how we try to justifyand rationalize and excuse our humanfailures and shortcomings by placing theblame on GOD. JOB 4:17-19

Not to add to the unsurety,much can be gleaned from all of CSL's books.I even read his secular lit, such as "Lillith" <- a fave.If you do not find the qoute in "God in the Docks" try "Mere Christianity" - ((or 'possibly') "Screwtape Letters").Though the actual quote is not recalled, both of these books bear out considerations regarding this topic.CIAO!g
