How to Learn from a Demon: Panel on Screwtape Letters

This from Theolatte, the blog of Dan DeWitt, the dean of Boyce College:

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, Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History; and Dr. Travis Kerns, Assistant Professor of Christian Worldview and Apologetics. The audio is available here.

I enjoyed being on this panel.  C. S. Lewis brings many insights about Christian spirituality and piety to the table.  In this discussion, my Boyce College colleagues and I engaged his literary styling, his theology, and his depiction of temptation in the believer’s life.  This is the kind of conversation that illustrates what Boyce is about–working from a strong biblical-theological foundation to engage the world and take every thought captive for Christ.
