Not really my cup of tea but extremely well written.

As long as we have an image in our head of the "devil" having horns, a red cape and a pitchfork, we will not be able to recognize his true attacks. He often appears to us as a voice of reason, of intellect, and of misguided justice.
This is a wonderful book.

A senior demon teaches a junior colleague how to tempt Christians, biting and very funny.

This book describes, through letters between a devilish uncle and his clever nephew, the natural course of human nature and its relationship with God.

It's full of laughs (who can get over the idea of a Devil named Screwtape? And titles like His Most Lowness?)

The faithful, as well, will recognize the hard-fought truths behind the words of this great master.

It's Lewis at his best.

This book is fun and insightful. Lewis explores humanity's most mundane, common flaws without preaching at the reader. The Screwtape Letters beautifully explores the natural challenges every Christian must strive to overcome to truly follow the teachings of Christ.

I enjoy the concept of this book being from a demon uncle to his demon nephew. It was a unique take of what spiritual warfare would be like from the intelligence of a demon as he attacks a human and what ways might be best to have success in bringing a "patient" to hell. Although I liked it, a lot of this book bored me. I blame the fact that I have read Frank Peretti books.

This is my second C.S. Lewis book (Mere Christianity was the first) and I came away much as I left the first,...desiring more. I took away a few things that will help me in my daily walk as a Christian,..and as in the other book I read,...a few things that really got me thinking.
