A Masterpiece of Satire on Hell’s Latest Novelties and Heaven’s Unanswerable Answer

C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the unique vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to “Our Father Below.” At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the wordly-wise devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

Great writing. As true today as it was in Lewis’s time!

DCharlesCross

A classic. A work of spiritual, psychological, and intellectual clarity and brilliance. Never did fiction make reality either so clear or accessible. Read it! Every year.

My Favorite Book of All-Time. “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.

Very intriguing. This book had me thinking / pondering / learning constantly. As a Christian person, it was enlightening to think of things from the perspective of these devils and gleam gospel truths from their reality. Very interesting. I’d recommend to anyone to read this book!

This book is so cool. Glad to be the first person to say this book is one of the most insightful looks into our struggle as human Christians.

Hapihamr

Fantastic!. In these pages we are given a glimpse into the war that rages for our souls as only C.S. Lewis can provide.

Sinapsis

Superb stuff!. An insightful and profound look at the problems faced by the ordinary Christian in day to day life, but from an extraordinarily imaginative and effective point of view. A must read,

Cnmathers

A most excellent and needed read. 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!

Statarius

Creepy, eerie, amazing exploration into the mind of the demonic, from the mind of a devout.. Understand your enemy, even if it's yourself.

Alarion99

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.

Chantelle O

Unique!. I think Mere Christianity is a great place to start, but enjoyed this book even more. It's a clever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it's wry understated humor.

KTYRawks

Amen. This book is brilliantly structured, I love it!

Turtlesfreak

Creative and enlightening. This is my favorite book by c s lewis. It is a wonderfully deep book, yet it is a relatively easy read.

Stirs from within. If one reads this and is not stirred from within … read it again.

Rachel is the best at bedwars

Definitely my favorite book. ever since I reread it a few months ago, ive found myself picking The Screwtape Letters up again and again, practically devouring it every time. This book is really interesting and stimulating because this was written in a different time and place - sometimes i have to look up words lol. but it also really makes you think, because it's not a shallow book at all; it's very spiritual. as a Christian it's also helpful because it's kind of like reverse psychology (i guess) - you kind of know now how an enemy would try to trick you, so now you're prepared for its schemes... like how Screwtape says for his nephew to try to push all the good deeds towards the outside of his circle like donating to causes for people in developing countries - but to keep all the bad stuff in the center of the man's circle like still being mean to his mom. Idk if that makes sense lol but anyway. Even if you're not a Christian you should read it. It's kinda funny too in a cynical way. Who knows? maybe this book will convince you to be one. I hope that because of reading C.S. Lewis' book, unbelievers realize how much they need God and that many have already done so. (I do not mean that The Screwtape Letters is the way to salvation.) ANYWAY i got off track. Great book. now stop reading my review and read The Screwtape Letters

Ty2983

Perfect. Absolutely spectacular!!!

Nash - DC

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.

About Author "C. S. Lewis"

Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was a British writer, literary scholar, and Anglican lay theologian.

He is best known as the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, but he is also noted for his other works of fiction, such as The Screwtape Letters and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, including Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain. Lewis was a close friend of J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings. Both men served on the English faculty at Oxford University and were active in the informal Oxford literary group known as the Inklings. According to Lewis's 1955 memoir Surprised by Joy, he was baptized in the Church of Ireland but fell away from his faith during adolescence. Lewis returned to Anglicanism at the age of 32, owing to the influence of Tolkien and other f....
