St. Peter’s by the Lake Episcopal Church will hold a book study on C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters.
The first study will be held at 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, with two others following at the same times Tuesday, July 28, and Tuesday, Aug. 19.
“A milestone in the history of popular theology, The Screwtape Letters is an iconic classic on spiritual warfare and the dynamics of temptation,” notes the Barnes and Noble website.
The narrative takes the form of a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew, Wormwood, a junior colleague, engaged in his first mission on earth trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is “lost” to the young devil.
Dedicated to Lewis’s friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is a timeless classic on spiritual conflict and the psychology of temptation which are part of our religious experience.
