C.S. Lewis at War – New from Radio Theatre!

You probably know C.S. "Jack" Lewis as the man who wrote the wryly insightful The Screwtape Letters, the seven children's stories comprising The Chronicles of Narnia and the masterful defense of Christian belief, Mere Christianity. You may not know that Jack was wounded in World War I. Or that he became a Christian while trying to argue against Christianity. Or that his best-known writings were produced against a backdrop of family difficulties, conflicts with his fellow academics and a world war that impacted every aspect of his life and writing.

Now, for the first time, the dramatic story of the life of C.S. Lewis and the events behind the creation of Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters are played out with a full cast of award-winning actors and an original music score — recorded in London, England, and on location in C.S. Lewis' Oxford home. Also included in this package is a new, dramatic reading of Lewis' Mere Christianity — capturing the clarity, intelligence and wit of Lewis' words in a way not experienced before.

Forged against the hard realities of war and personal difficulty, Mere Christianity was created to speak to a generation that had lost its faith. Time has not diminished its power. Years later, it still articulates Christian truth with fresh relevancy — and the drama behind the book makes it truly come alive.

(Includes eight discs with 3 hours of audio drama, plus a dramatic reading of the complete, unabridged book Mere Christianity.)

The Screwtape Letters: Another classic C.S. Lewis experience told dramatically through Radio Theater!

Screwtape, a demon highly experienced in the art of temptation, advises his up-and-coming nephew Wormwood about dealing with his human "patient." This first-ever audio dramatization of C.S. Lewis' witty and timeless classic The Screwtape Letters explores everything we ought to know about our desires, faith and distorted views of reality. Featuring award-winning actor Andy Serkis ("Gollum" in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movie trilogies) as Screwtape, Radio Theatre's The Screwtape Letters is masterfully created, employing state-of-the-art sound design and an other-worldly musical score.

The Screwtape Letters first appeared in London's Guardian newspaper during the dark days of World War II. In 1942, the Letters were published in book form in England — and dedicated to Lewis' friend J.R.R. Tolkien. The following year, the book appeared in America to great acclaim. Experience it as never before with this wonderfully crafted audio drama from Radio Theatre!
