 C.S. Lewis quote?

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."

 Re: C.S. Lewis quote?

According to Wikipedia, Lewis published
a collection of essays "GOD in the Dock"
which described how we try to justify
and rationalize and excuse our human
failures and shortcomings by placing the
blame on GOD. JOB 4:17-19

 Re:

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!
