Spiritual Survival in the Modern World by Dr. Andrew Swafford
In this work, Dr. Swafford opens up the wisdom of C.S. Lewis' Screwtape Letters. From challenges at home, evangelization, overcoming anxiety, doubt, prayer, and becoming other-centered--these and many other struggles a Christian is bound to face show up in these pages. What unites this book is Swafford's ability to untwist the demonic plan to keep us down and bring us to despair. Truly, this work provides a roadmap for spiritual survival in the modern age, one that will empower us to live a life of joy and peace right now.
''Spiritual Survival in the Modern World is a punch in the face! Dr. Swafford unlocks C.S. Lewis' wisdom in a way that allows us to apply crucial moral and spiritual realities to our everyday life. It's practical, applicable, and something I'm recommending to students and missionaries in FOCUS.''
--Kevin Cotter, Senior Director of Curriculum of FOCUS (the Fellowship of Catholic University Students)
''When unpacking a master's work, you need a master teacher…and Andrew Swafford is just that. Lewis' Screwtape Letters is a timeless treasure, to be sure, but to truly appreciate that treasure modern believers need a map--something that will unpack its wisdom and richness for the overcommitted twenty-first-century soul. In this book, Swafford offers sage and strategic advice not only on how to survive in the modern world, but prepare ourselves for the next one. A great read. I highly recommend it!''
