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 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 and humorous account of temptation - and triumph over it - ever written.

    "A MUST Read by All Christians"

    This clever book is as relevant today as it was when written. The reader can not help but feel convicted.

    "for those of us..."

    who backslide on occasion, this is a wonderful reminder of how the enemy jeers and taunts our Father about us concerning our weaknesses. The horror of our failings bring about renewed strength and conviction to carry on the good fight for Him. God bless C.S. Lewis!

    This is one of the most valuable apps on our phones. My kids get car sick if they read. Books keep them quiet. No fighting!

    "My favorite of CS Lewis"

    Very rarely do I read a book twice. This is my third time. It was even better in the audio format as the book is a collection of letters. I really appreciate how Lewis uses humor and satire to confront the many weaknesses of man. It reminds me that I want to be the exception to the rule.

    "Absolutely genius"

    At first it took me a while to wrap my head around the evil forces ands where they were showing from. One I got familiar with the pituitary and design of the story I was amazed at the knowledge I gained. It it's always good to know and understand the thoughts and moved of the enemy.

    "A Classic Work, Relevant for Our Times"

    Joss Ackland is a master at what he does. The level of performance in both the 'Screwtape letters' and 'Screwtape Proposes a Toast' left me in awe. C.S Lewis wrote this book over half a century ago and it could not be more relevant today than it was then. It was a sad day when this book came to an end, but I'll just have to listen to it again.

    "amazing"

    This is more relevant today than when it was written in the early 1940s. it will give you a totally different perspective on the spiritual battle and the tactics of demons.

    "Excellent review of our life without God"

    Enjoyed the book contents. Very clever and insightful in a digestible manner. The reader's tone slid off at times. Had good expression but words sometimes slurred together and trailed off which detracted from the read.

    "Wow!!!"

    I have to admit it was a bit scary at first, the idea of one demon coaching another on the ease of leading a human being to total and ruinous damnation. However, once I caught the rhythm of the story and the code words in which were used to God, making him the enemy. I was able to eventually reverse this wording in my mind and the story became less threatening. Overall I believe that the concept and the writing were both pure genius. It's a book you read and wish that you would've written yourself. It was just that good!!! I listened expecting to hear what I should and shouldn't do and I did. However, it was told to perfection. I absolutely took treasures away from it.

    "Too preachy"

    Too preachy for my tastes. Rather like those internet ads that say, "here's what doctors don't went you to know," the reverse psychology is obvious and a thin cover for C.S. Lewis's need to give a sermon.
