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)

nope, didn't care for this. it is a play for your soul good vs bad. only in this one the bad is the main characters. I only got this because I know the arthor and I heard it was made into a movie. basically I was previewing for my teens. nope. didn't like it. nope won't see the movie. nope didn't tell my teens about it. nope would not recommend it. nope,nope, nope. that means no.
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.
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.
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.
