Understanding temptation and thinking beyond foolish cliches like, “The devil made me do it!” is important for teens as they prepare for a life of independence and as they take on ever-increasing responsibility for the nurture of their faith.

In The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis employs a reversal of perspective to present the psychology of temptation from the viewpoint of the tempter who would drive followers of Christ away from Him. This 7 Sisters study guide, written by Sabrina Justison, helps your students explore Lewis’ insights into this topic and cultivate critical thinking skills as they are encouraged to examine the underlying philosophical ideas Lewis presents and reflect on them in a personal way.
