Editor of The Collected Poems of C. S. Lewis: A Critical Edition
A good study guide is surprisingly difficult: it must combine accuracy with imagination; it must be generative without being speculative. O Flaherty delivers. I am genuinely excited about this important resource.

Author of Bandersnatch: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Creative Collaboration of the Inklings
Presenting The Screwtape Letters as a theatrical stage adaptation has had the wonderful benefit of inspiring hundreds if not thousands of theatre-goers to read Lewis classic novel. As a result we are often asked to suggest a study guide to help people wrestle more deeply with the themes and insights behind the brilliant, morally inverted universe that Lewis created. William O Flaherty s thoughtful, copious and insightful volume is what I will be recommending to them. It s the best of its kind.
Max McLean, Artistic Director of Fellowship for Performing Arts, New York, NY
O Flaherty s companion to Screwtape is seriously worth any Lewis lover s time, both for its penetrating study questions and its excellence as a reference tool.

Author of Light: C. S. Lewis First and Final Short Story
Once C. S. Lewis best-known work, The Screwtape Letters today has been somewhat eclipsed by The Chronicles of Narnia. For those discovering Screwtape for the first time, William O Flaherty provides clear summaries, useful background information, and helpful discussion questions. Anyone leading a small group study will find this to be a valuable tool.
