Square One will look at The Screwtape Letters

Square One -- our Monday evening meal and Bible study -- will begin the new semester with a discussion of C. S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters.  Lewis is best-known as the author of The Chronicles of Narnia.  But, in Screwtape, Lewis addrsses the realm of faith in a less allegorical, more direct way than in Narnia.  

The Screwtape Letters takes the form of a series of letters from a highly-placed devil (Screwtape) to his nephew and newly-commissioned devil (Wormwood).  Wormwood is working on the damnation of his very first human soul.  Uncle Screwtape offers devilish advice and instruction as Wormwood works the program of luring his "patient" into the realms of Hell.  

This correspondence raises a multitude of questions for us, the readers, as we assess our own lives of Faith.

The Screwtape Letters is a modern-day Christian classic.  Wesley hopes that this study brings new understanding to faith and discipleship.

Square One meets Monday evenings at 6 o'clock in The Fireplace Room of the Wesley building.  We offer free pizza at that time, with our discussion beginning at 6:30.  We invite everyone to be a part of the evening's activity.
