The-Screwtape-Letters

Book Study: The Screwtape Letters

CS Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters was written after Lewis’ brother narrowly escaped from the Nazis at Dunkirk, the Screwtape Letters are 31 short letters between demons as they work to corrupt and secure the soul of a young man for eternity.

This book was an enormous influence on Fr. Rodriguez, as it made him see the spiritual warfare in his own life and the solution that only Jesus Christ can give.

Lenten-Book-Study--The-Problem-of-Pain

Lenten Book Study: The Problem of Pain

If God is a god of love, why is there suffering in the world? Does evil disprove the existence of God or at least call into question His character? Why do bad things happen to good people? Does suffering have a purpose? Join us as we examine these questions and others as the Rector leads us on a four-part study of C.S. Lewis’ book, The Problem of Pain.
