Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A milestone in the history of popular theology, The Screwtape Letters is an iconic classic on spiritual warfare and the dynamics of temptation.

This profound and striking narrative takes the form of a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior colleague engaged in his first mission on earth, trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is "lost" to the young devil.

Dedicated to Lewis's friend and colleague J. R. R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is a timeless classic on spiritual conflict and the psychology of temptation which are part of our religious experience.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths, and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was sixteen. Many years later, the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificient lion. Their story became The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed, and the final title, The Last Battle, was awarded the United Kingdom's prestigious Carnegie Award.

My Pastor was absolutly scandilized when I referenced this book et al during a discussion on satans wiles to lure us from the path home. That's really sad as C S Lewis approach is quite witty and clever. So much so it gives one pause to ponder if your not, already one of Wormwoods victories. This is a fun read on the face of it, one needn't focus on the deeper meanings/dogma to thourghly enjoy it.

I am in the process of reading this book. It is a very good insight as to how Gods enemy is always attacking believers in Christ, It shows the manipulation of how satan really works and he does not descriminate his goal is to keep Gods children from advancing His kingdom. a very insightful book.
