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.
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
As true today as it was in Lewis’s time!
This book is brilliantly structured, I love it!
