"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."

C.S. Lewis Goes to Hell by William O’Flaherty is precisely as advertised.
​Part encyclopedia, part plot summary, part analysis, and part discussion guide, this book is a valuable resource for both an individual reader and for a small group interested in exploring in more detail Lewis’s satirical masterpiece.”

Don King, Professor of English and editor of The Collected Poems of C. S. Lewis: A Critical Edition

​​ “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.”
​ Charlie W. Starr, Professor of English and author of Light: C. S. Lewis’s First and Final Short Story

"Once C. S. Lewis's 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."

Devin Brown, Professor at Asbury University and author of A Life Observed: A Spiritual Biography of C. S. Lewis​​
"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 is the best of its kind."
Max McLean, Artistic Director
