The Screwtape Letters

The Screwtape Letters Summary

The Screwtape Letters by C.S.  Lewis is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers 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's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

A book for everyone5 star

Even non-believers will find a great deal of thought provoking insights in this cleverly written book. There is such a profound understanding of human nature there, that it makes you also step back a moment and look at your own behavior through the demon's lens. It's a quick read, but I bet you'll find yourself coming back to it again and again.55
