I lead a small group of older men in Bible Study two Saturdays every month. We just finished 18 months of reading and discussing The Great Divorce. This Study Guide was an invaluable aid to our discussion which. Beside being a valuable Book Study, it's many Bible verse references turned this into a meaningful and valuable Bible Study experience.

I really like format that allows/encourages multiple leaders! Having the scriptures and answers separate from the book helps with the flow of the class discussion. No turning to the back of the book when you aren't sure of the answer. The character summary is a wonderful and much used tool! This study guide is helping me understand the book even if I wasn't reading The Great Divorce in a small group setting.

The Great Divorce Study Guide, by Alan Vermilye, is an exellent resource. I used his study guide for The Screwtape Letters, then purchased this study for the Great Divorce, knowing that the questions would be academically solid as well as Biblically sound. After using these two study guides for my Homeschool Co-Op Literature classes this school year,I highly reccomend them for your home scholar, co-op class or Bible Study

The study guide greatly helped us maneuver through, absorb, and understand the book. I can't imagine studying C.S. Lewis' book without this study guide. We will use Vermilye's other guides in the future.
