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.

Consistently a great read!

Excellent satire, worthy of coming back to, time and again. Would we all heed its dire warning.

Interesting and impressive exploration of faith.

...Could do without the essay at the end panning the American public school system, though.

Perfect!

I've read this book several times. I love it. It gave me a clearer picture of our spiritual battle. But, to have it read to me with such a fabulous voice! It was just how I had imagined Screwtape's voice and dialect. Just perfect.

Sounds like the world today

Though it was written in 1941 it reads like it is happening today. Good read.

Classic book, and with great narration!

Listened to many audio books, and this may have been the best single narration I've heard. Will listen to again!
