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)

    "Scary but wise sayings"

    Wisdom is very clear in this work and condemns so many things in our world that are stupid and leads to death.

    "interesting concept"

    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.

    "The Best"

    I couldn't stop because it's deeply Imaginative, relative and relatable. This book is going on my all time favorites list.

    "As expected C. S. Lewis is amazing. "

    I have listened to this book several times and will several times more.
    Great narration. almost as though Lewis himself was telling me the story.
    I do seem to get list now and again ... but I think that's my A-ADHD.

    "Absolute Classic!"

    I read this book about 20 years ago and this audio version brought it back to life again. While I don't agree with every theological point the concept and thought provoking points C.S. Lewis touches on make this a must read in my opinion.
