Book Overview

I have no intention of explaining how the correspondence which I now offer to the public fell into my hands. There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight. The sort of script which...

Very good book.

This sheds some light on some of the techniques used by the devil to lead us astray and deceive us. Very well written.

The Screwtape Letters, by C. S. Lewis

Although an older paperback edition, it was in excellent condition, without a single dog-ear, or wrinkled page, nor was the binding or cover misused in any way. It had that lovely smell that old books get after being read and spending many years on a library shelf, which makes it even more of a treasure in my opinion. It was a special gift to a young girl in my boyfriend's family that I discovered is an avid reader, and I was delighted to find that she and I shared a common love for literature. I sincerely hope that she not only enjoys the book not only for the entertainment value it provides, but takes from it the moral teachings, and that it makes her think on how temptation is always just around the corner, and every decision we make affects the paths we take in life. This book helped shape the way I looked at my own spirituality, and the choices I made in my life throughout the years. I hope it does the same for her. At fourteen, it is a wonderful book to help guide a teen without being overbearing or 'preachy'. It amuses, makes you both laugh, and worry about the plight of the victim, the goals of the demon trying to tempt the Christian, the failures of both from time to time, and the fragile nature of man. I highly recommend this to readers fourteen and older. If you haven't had the opportunity to read it, pick it up. At this price, it truly was a bargain!

The Screwtape Letters

It's a very insightful book that seeks (successfully) to convey the premise that we are under constant attack from the Enemy! It tells, in a negative way, what each person must do to be saved. Outstanding!

Should be Required Reading for Every Christian

A review of "The Screwtape Letters" By: C.S. Lewis

"The Screwtape Letters" is the absolute best book I have ever read. It is a very well written book. It really makes you think. C.S. Lewis' style is exquisite. He paints with words as an artist paints with pictures and a musician with notes and rhythms. While still being the best book I have ever read, it is also one of the strangest. Screwtape, an experienced devil, teaches his nephew, Wormwood, how to win a soul over from the so-called "Enemy", who is the Lord Jesus Christ. While he is doing this, he teaches the reader about the techniques that Satan uses to distract Christians away from God. Therefore, he is teaching us how to live better Christian lives and avoid giving in to temptations. He shows us through the example of his nephew, Wormwood, trying to win over a particular Englishmen. He tries to make him think that what he is doing is not sin. Even though, in the end, the man is not won over, we see how so many people go astray without even realizing it. This is an excellent book and I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a challenging book to read.
