C. S. Lewis and The Screwtape Letters - November 6th @ 7PM

Here is your chance to learn more about C. S. Lewis and his entertaining book The Screwtape Letters from an expert source!

The Screwtape Letters is a Christian novel published in 1942 (and dedicated to J. R .R. Tolkien, a close friend of C. S. Lewis). It is written in a satirical style, with a senior demon (Screwtape) writing a series of letters to his nephew (Wormwood), a junior demon, on how to tempt humans. The plot and characters are used to address Christian theological issues, primarily related to temptation and resistance to it.

Deacon Frank Olmsted, theology teacher at De Smet Jesuit High School, will speak about the author and the book, as well as take questions, in Liguori Hall, Wednesday, November 6 at 7 PM during his one hour presentation.

Reading the book is not a pre-requisite for attending, but it is not a long book and is readily available from libraries or bookstores. Put this event on your calendar today! Students are welcome - high school and college students would also find this talk worthwhile.
