Screwtape Letters & Mere Christianity
I first read this as a teenager, and a couple of times since, but this experience of reading slowly, letter by letter, and listening to your discussions has given a whole new dimension to the depth of these letters. Thank you David and Matt for your insightful and honest discussions.
I have only recently discovered ‘Pints with Jack’ through David’s appearance on ‘The Counsel of Trent’ so I’ve also gone back to the very beginning and am re-reading ‘Mere Christianity’ which helped me so much in my 30’s. I have also added The Great Divorce and Till We Have Faces to my Kindle. Lots of catching up to do!
