Description

The Screwtape Letters by C.S.  Lewis is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below." At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

    The Screwtape Letters is an amazing book looking into the darkness of Hell itself concerning human affairs. Everyone, Christian and non-Christian alike, should give this book a read and you will be haunted by how accurately and disturbingly it speaks to us in the modern day. Great book!

    “Screwtape Letters” is the best book I have ever read. It has had a profound impact on my life on the way I view the every day ups and downs we all inevitably go through. This is a religious book, but even if you aren’t religious, it provides tremendous insight into the human struggle. The creativity and genius of C.S. Lewis in this text, in my opinion, is almost unrivaled.

    In these pages we are given a glimpse into the war that rages for our souls as only C.S. Lewis can provide.
  • Creepy, eerie, amazing exploration into the mind of the demonic, from the mind of a devout.

    Understand your enemy, even if it's yourself.
  • A book for everyone

    Even non-believers will find a great deal of thought provoking insights in this cleverly written book. There is such a profound understanding of human nature there, that it makes you also step back a moment and look at your own behavior through the demon's lens. It's a quick read, but I bet you'll find yourself coming back to it again and again.
  • New cultural relevance

    It shocks and amazes me that a book like this could be written at the beginning of WWII, and yet still holds specific cultural relevance for today. Secular topics like Social Justice and Democracy vs. Socialism are covered in depth and the undermining of basic Christian principles by the World, the Flesh, and the Devil (or his minions) gave my heart and mind much to digest. If you have thought about reading this book for sometime (like I have), make that time now. C.S. Lewis has much to say about the things that effect our Nation, our Church, and ourselves.
