Behind Enemy Lines: A Study Of The Screwtape Letters

by Bill Spanjer Jr.

In this challenging and insightful book Lewis examines the temptations and pitfalls of every Christian at one time or another in his or her life. From our relationships, desire for pleasure, and various anxieties, to sex, humor, and prayer, Lewis uses the creative and fictional correspondence from one senior devilish tempter (Screwtape) to another, instructing him on how best to derail a Christian from his relationship with Christ. As we travel behind enemy lines to hear their strategy, we are afforded the opportunity to consider our own sanctification and battle with sin.  In this class we consider not only the devices of the evil one, but how we might best build up our spiritual defenses against various sins and temptations.
