..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

C.S. Lewis: The Screwtape Letters: The Movie!

Screwtape is coming to a theater near you!
Well, unfortunately he is already often
there, but this may expose him for what
he is! Thank God!

Woohoo! I was just looking to see when
the Chronicles of Narnia movie sequel:
Prince Caspian was coming out (not til
next year), its been a long wait. But the
same company is producing C.S.Lewis',
"The Screwtape Letters" also due to
come out in 2008.

The producers include Lewis' stepson
Douglas Gresham.

I'm looking forward to this, and thinking
it will be well-received. Let's support
Christian filmakers in their mission
to bring something challenging and
viewable to the silver screen.

And now, a Screwtape quote to whet

(the demons are having a winetasting:
Vintage Pharisee is the drink)....

"... see, and smell, that even under wartime
conditions the College cellar still has a
few dozen of sound old vintage Pharisees.
Well, well, well. This is like old times.
Hold it beneath your nostrils for a moment,
gentledevils. Hold it up to the light.

Look at those fiery streaks that writhe
and tangle in its dark heart, as if they
were contending. And so they are. You know
how this wine is blended? Different types
of Pharisee have been harvested, trodden,
and fermented together to produce its
subtle flavour. Types that were most
antagonistic to one another on earth.
Some were all rules and relics...; others
were all drab clothes, long faces,
and petty traditional abstinences from wine
or cards or the theatre. Both had in common
their self-righteousness and the almost
infinite distance between their actual
outlook and anything the Enemy really
is or commands." --The Screwtape Letters,

Fall on your knees....
