The Screwtape Letters
|Publisher:||HarperOne; Reprint edition(2001)|
A MASTERPIECE OF SATIRE ON HELL'S LATEST NOVELIST AND HEAVEN'S UNANSWERABLE ANSWER
This classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over 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 gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charged of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation-and triumph over it-ever written.
