Screwtape Facts 21
The Screwtape
Letters is one of many great books by C.S. Lewis. As the publication of my book about it draws near I’m sharing a fact about it each day.  

In the new preface to the 1961 edition Lewis
joked about The Screwtape Letters being
the type of book “that gravitates towards
spare bedrooms, there to live a life of
undisturbed tranquility.”

“Presenting The Screwtape Letters as a theatrical stage adaptation has had the wonderful benefit of inspiring hundreds if not thousands of theatre-goers to read Lewis’ classic novel.  As a result we are often asked to suggest a study guide to help people wrestle more deeply with the themes and insights behind the brilliant, morally inverted universe that Lewis created.  William O’Flaherty’s thoughtful, copious and insightful volume is what I will be recommending them.  It is the best of its kind.”
Max McLean,  Artistic Director of Fellowship for Performing Arts, New York, NY
