Temptation In The Life Of Disciple: C.S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters

 


Trace the theme of the afterlife throughout Lewis' classic work, The Great Divorce. Explore the notions that Heaven is utterly reality while Hell is nearly nothing; that Heaven is being the presence of God and enjoying all good things that flow from his character and creativity. Dr. Martindale will explain that all of our desires are, at bottom, for Heaven.
