Publisher's Summary

A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over 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 gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old 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.

(P)2006 Blackstone Audio Inc.

What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Finalist, Inspirational/Spiritual, 2007

"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)

    "Wonderfully creative satire!"

    Lewis combines the doctrines of demonology, sin, and temptation along with the then contemporary social criticism through wit and satire. Read together with John Owen's book The Mortification of Sin, the Chrisitian I can be more ably defend against sin and temptation.

    This audio version is very well done. The production is top notch. Definitely recommended!

    "Understand how the Devil works"

    CS Lewis outlines how individuals and our society are being destroyed. The best way to combat it is to understand how we are being attacked.

    "Insightful, fascinating"
    Would you listen to The Screwtape Letters again? Why?

    It gives me insights that make me a better person.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Screwtape Letters?

    Devils' biggest efforts are not to plant thoughts in us, but to keep them out. Keeping us from thinking at all, is their goal.

    "Essential Read for all those who seek to follow Christ"

    The language and concepts of the book are dense. It helps to be able to stop and rewind certain passages as you listen the book.
    Powerful commentary on God's grave, love and hope for all who believe!

    Story
    "Brilliant, Thought Provoking, Hilarious"

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone. Screwtape is the Uncle of Wormwood, a tempter, whose job is to carefully guide a "patient" or human so that he or she will spend eternity with their father below aka the devil. The alternative would be to spend eternity with the Enemy. The "enemy" that Screwtape refers to is the Godhead: Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. The purpose of Screwtapes letters to his Nephew Wormwood is to advise the new tempter in how to win over the patient. Through these letters we pick up a story of a man's journey through life during an English war with Germany.

    I give this book 5 stars because of it's brilliance and satire. The story gives us a fresh perspective of the devils work among us. It would have been great to hear from the point of view of an Angel in Heaven writing to a good spirit but I guess they were more careful not to let any letters slip into C.S. Lewis's hands. Oh well the Screwtape letters will have to do.

    "Entertaining and enlightening"

    Love the narrator, this is the second one of his narrations I've heard and Lewis' work is phenomenal. In Screwtape's letters we see some of the worst habits of men, many of which we may have. Let this story be either inspire self reflection or pure entertainment.
