The Screwtape Letters | Max McLean

In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis imagines a series of lessons in the importance of taking a deliberate role in Christian faith by portraying a typical human life, with all its temptations and failings, seen from devils' viewpoints. Screwtape (Actor Max McLean) holds an administrative post in the bureucracy of Hell, and acts as a mentor to his nephew Wormwood, an inexperienced (and incompetent) tempter. In the 31 letters which constitute the book, Screwtape gives Wormwood detailed advice on various methods of undermining God's words and of promoting abandonment of God in "the Patient", interspersed with observations on human nature and on the Bible. In Screwtape's advice, selfish gain and power are seen as the only good, and neither demon can comprehend God's love for man or acknowledge human virtue (Wikipedia).

Max McLain is coming to Clowes Hall this Saturday, with two performances at 4:00 and 8:00 PM.  Click on the link below for tickets.
