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.

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.

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

This is a great "instruction manual" of what NOT to do to wind up in Hell. Seriously, it contains lots of things to think about for people who are interested in being good Christians (might work for other religions too, but C.S. Lewis is definitely Christian)

We don't necessarily agree with the whole thing but there are things to be gleaned from this book. It was helpful.

This is one of my all-time favorites that is worth "being reminded" over time.

We did this as a book study at our church. It was very difficult to understand and read but made a great book study because you can get different prospectives and viewpoints.

another classic from c s lewis. i did not finish the book however. i decided i didn't want to spend that much time imagining what satan is up to.

This is a weird but intriguing book I think. His letters are signed Your affectionate Uncle but his perpose in writting his nephew is this: To win young lives to the devil.
This has earned a place in Christian Classics. CS Lewis- his witty observations continue to confront and challange believers and non believers alike.

Speaking through the eyes of a devil (demon), C. S. Lewis takes a hard and insightful look at human nature and weakness.

Excellent, thought-provoking insight into Satan's designs for a man's downfall.

This was an interesting book in that it reviews many ways that the devil may tempt a human and the emotions that may be played upon. I didn't agree with many things stated and sometimes it just seemed like the author just wanted to use a bunch of big words in the same sentence.
Much of the book was fluff and it wasn't as intriguing as I expected it to be.
All in all I give it a B-
reviewed The Screwtape Letters on

A classic. "Prop Tst" is a bonus speech by Screwtape.
saphyreskyes avatar reviewed The Screwtape Letters on + 34 more book reviews
As Christians, we are very unaware of the spiritual battles that are waged against us every day. We cannot comprehend the evil that exists nor the lengths to which the enemy will go to neutralize us if not totally destroy us.

This book is an eye-opener, and gives us a new perspective on the way the enemy sees us and the attacks he will bring.

More than just interesting, it imparts fresh resolve and strengthens our ability to identify subtle traps and to stand against anything that would come between us and God...in a word, sin.

spiritual classics by C.S. Lewis

If you are familiar at all with C.S. Lewis's other writings, this is another classic of his. I have to admit, I was very disappointed with the "droll boringness" of the reader of this audiobook. Hence, I placed it back into circulation. Very disappointed.

I'm glad I decided to finally read this classic. Originally written in 1942, many of the observations are still relevant, if not more so, today. Lewis' collection of "letters" are from senior devil Screwtape to his protégé and devil-in-training Wormwood. It is a collection of advice, and warnings, on how to tempt humans in order to harvest their souls, or as important, preventing them from acquiring heaven. The easy and fun read should not dissuade the reader from the deep and thoughtful topics. I particularly enjoyed how to use Democracy to turn souls, and the evolution - or devolution - of education as a method for enthralling and directing the masses. [5/5]

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.
