Screwtape Letters, The - E-Guide

The Screwtape Letters unit study guide for literature, from a Christian perspective

Click here for a sample section of the guide!

What if hell were organized as a fiendish bureaucracy with managers and field agents? Meet Screwtape, an undersecretary in the Lowerarchy of Hell, who has undertaken the guidance and tutelage of his nephew Wormwood, who has been assigned a human patient to secure for eternity. In a series of letters, Screwtape guides the young demon through the finer points of temptation, the weaknesses and foibles of human beings, and the disaster of his patient becoming a Christian. Though this certainly complicates things, the two infernal beings won't let it stop them. From this very skewed perspective, C. S. Lewis digs into the human nature, wittily and sometimes painfully revealing our too-human weaknesses, and therefore how we can try to avoid them.
