Total Language Plus - The Screwtape Letters Focus Guide
Total Language Plus - The Screwtape Letters Focus Guide Author:Jessica McMillan The Screwtape Letters is arguably our most difficult focus guide. The issue raised in the book combined with C. S. Lewis's many contributions to the discipline of apologetics, make this an appropriate study guide for mature readers. By the end of the focus guide, students will have defined what they believe regarding bibliology (what one believe... more »s about the Bible), theology (what one believes about God), christology (what one believes about Jesus), anthropology (what one believes about humanity), and soteriology (what one believes about salvation).
Make no mistake: the focus guide does not answer any of those questions. It does lead the serious student, through a series of thought-provoking questions, to define and defend his or her beliefs. It is an excellent tool for fostering meaningful conversations that will assist parents and teachers to understand what their students think about salvation issues. The main goal of this focus guide is to develop faithful, wise, young adults, capable of defending their beliefs against an unbelieving and cynical world rather than parroting what others have told them or repeating ideas they cannot defend.
The paragraphs that students write as they proceed throughout the focus guide are critical for the end project: a major thesis on apologetics. The final paper will be too large an undertaking without the daily preparation provided by the paragraph assignments.
The Screwtape Letters is not specifically about apologetics, but as we read through the letters we are naturally challenged to consider what we believe about God, Jesus Christ, and salvation.Not everyone completing this study will come to the same conclusions, some will strongly disagree with parts of C. S. Lewis's overall theology, some will think about issues they've never before considered. Throughout it all, may God be glorified.
