The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation, and triumph over it, ever written.
(P)2006 Blackstone Audio Inc.
"Lewis' satire is a Christian classic....[his] take on human nature is as on-target as it was when the letters were first published in 1941." (Library Journal)
CS Lewis uses fiction to make one think about the spiritual battles going on all the time. He brings to life Ephesians 6, our battle is not against flesh and blood.
Sometimes there's no better way to explain what to do and not do that to give a glaring account of the opposite side of the situation. C.S. Lewis' masterful work The Screwtape Letters does this in a delightful style. The narrator does an excellent job in voice and tone, bringing forward this wonderful work. This is the type of book to listen or read repeatedly throughout one's life and reflect on how we as mere humans are thrilled and entrapped by our very humanity and yet can be redeemed most graciously by our Lord. I thank God for people like C.S. Lewis, that the Lord uses in great ways to bless and call each of us onto a better walk.
i found it simple and elegant, perfectly done and read just right. savor every word! just marvelous!

I struggle to finish it but I understand why this was such a popular book.
Screwtape gives Wormwood detailed advice on various methods of undermining faith and promotingsin in the Patient, interspersed with observations on human nature and Christian doctrine. In Screwtape's advice, individual benefit and greed are seen as the greatest good, and neither demon is capable of comprehending God's love for man or acknowledging human virtue.
