Dramatic reading of C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters and commentary with Dr. Louis MARKOS and Dr. Dominic A. AQUILA
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center in collaboration with Houston Baptist University and the University of St. Thomas Office of Academic Affairs
Along with The Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis's best known and most often read book is The Screwtape Letters. In it, Lewis allows us to eavesdrop on the infernal correspondence between a senior devil named Screwtape and his nephew Wormwood. As Screwtape instructs his naïve pupil in the fine art of temptation, he helps him to see that humans are best snared, not through a grand, tragic sin, but through a series of little sins that slowly draw them away from God, from reason, from joy, and from their own humanity.
Join us as we expose some of Screwtape's most devilish ploys.
The event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
