He saw not only Them; he saw Him.
These final comments from Screwtape to Wormwood describe the Christian’s experience of departing this temporal world to enter God’s presence. They are among my favorite words penned by C.S. Lewis.
Today at Boyce College we hosted a panel discussion on the impact of Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters in light of the seventy year anniversary of its publication. The participants included: myself; Dr. Jim Orrick, Professor of Literature and Culture; Dr. Owen Strachan, Instructor of Christian Theology and Church History; and Dr. Travis Kerns, Assistant Professor of Christian Worldview and Apologetics. The audio is posted below. I published a sketch of Lewis featuring an image of Screwtape here.
