Story Summary: What if hell were organized as a fiendish bureaucracy with managers and field agents? Meet Screwtape, upper management and uncle to Wormwood. Hell shares no love, but it is full of advice on the weaknesses of humanity, and it is extremely practical. Through Screwtape's letters of advice to Wormwood, Lewis wittily and sometimes painfully reveals our too-human weaknesses.
Looking for more than activity sheets or a who-did-what series of questions? Want to dig into the essence of the novel? This study guide provides easy-to-use, reproducible lessons on literary terms, comprehension and analysis, critical thinking, related scriptural principles, vocabulary, and activities, plus a complete answer key. Examines issues from a Christian perspective. Excellent for private schools and home study. Also an excellent reference for public school teachers, but biblical references may have to be removed. Study guides do not contain the text of the story or book.

C.S. "Jack" Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" is one of the great classics of Christian literature; well-written, educational, full of a deep faith, and funny. It can be a difficult book to get the full meaning of if the reader doesn't have a fairly comprehensive grounding in the New Testament, and a decent command of the English language. This is not to say that only biblical scholars or those with a college education can enjoy 'Screwtape', but high school students, or those new to (or not of) the Christian faith, may be confused by some references in the book. Lewis wrote the book for the average Briton of the 1940s, presupposing a higher command of the English language and familarity with the Bible than is common today. Enter Presbyterian pastor Michael Poteet and his study guide to "The Screwtape Letters". Poteet writes the guide for readers with, I'd guess, at least an (American)10th grade reading level or the equivalent age elsewhere. He is...
Yes, this book is a 99 cent cover with photocopied pages, but it is a scholarly work with great depth and variety, and the study sheets are reproducible for a whole classroom. If you want to use this just for personal purposes, the price is acceptable for the amount of material you receive. If you are a teacher and want to use it for your class (it is written at a high school level), it is a steal, considering that if the publisher would choose to print a softcover teacher's guide with separate student workbooks, the cost would be much higher.
The item is looseleaf copied pages of discussion, questions, and scripture references and a folder. There is a generous copyright on it, allowing "a teacher" to copy it for use in the home or classroom (multiple teachers must buy separate copies). So it's kind of expensive for single use but very reasonable if you copy it for a whole class.
Also, it is targeted for high school students, so it has things like vocabulary that adult classes will probably want to skip.
