Item description for The Screwtape Letters (C. S. Lewis Signature Classics) by C S Lewis...

Overview
Letters from the devil Screwtape to his less experienced nephew and apprentice Wormwood reveal a cunning plan for committing human souls to damnation, in an illuminating look at temptation, repentance, forgiveness, and grace. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

A milestone in the history of popular theology, The Screwtape Letters is an iconic classic on spiritual warfare and the dynamics of temptation.

This profound and striking narrative takes the form of a series of letters from Screwtape, a devil high in the Infernal Civil Service, to his nephew Wormwood, a junior colleague engaged in his first mission on earth, trying to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Although the young man initially looks to be a willing victim, he changes his ways and is "lost" to the young devil.

Dedicated to Lewis's friend and colleague J. R. R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is a timeless classic on spiritual conflict and the psychology of temptation which are part of our religious experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Screwtape Letters?

the anti-psychology of the soul - enjoy reading, ponder, and thrive  Mar 24, 2007
INTRODUCTION:
This was my introduction to C.S. Lewis, as the writer. I have watched the Disney [the Chronicles of] Narnia, but never made time for his famous books "Mere Christianity", "Surprised by Joy", "Reflections on the Psalms", "Space Trilogy" and "The Screwtape Letters."

I am glad this book has been my first introduction to C.S. Lewis. This book is a unique book because I have never heard of a book being written from the perspective of the bad spirits. At least not in the Christian books genre.

AUTHOR:

CONTENT:

Basically the book is a compilation of short chapters (2-4 pages). Each chapter is a letter that Screwtape (name of the uncle) to Corkscrew (name of the nephew). Both Screwtape and Corkscrew work for the Devil (whom they call .... ) and his kingdom is called ..... Corkscrew's mission is to subvert the human who was assigned to his care. Screwtape's mission is to advise his nephew in how to better accomplish his mission, and in the end work against God's Kingdom, which they call -

Here are some excerpts from this wonderfully psychological book:

CONCLUSION:
You will be surprised by this book, because the format and idea behind the plot is quite unique. In the 1961 edition by Collier Books there is the great introduction to the topic by C.S. Lewis, which is fascinating and informative in its own right (especially about the topic of "angels" throught western history). What I took away from this book, is that the evil one will try to subvert us at the mental level, to work at the anti-psychology of our soul. Knowing the strategies of the enemy, is half-way towards winning the battle. This earthly life is the battle field. But someone in the 1st century Palestine, had already won the battle for us, God's children. How wonderful, and what a way to thrive on this beautiful planet.
 
Re-reading again after 20 years  Mar 22, 2007
I read and wrote on this book and the other Christian Apologist works of Lewis almost 20 years ago, while in college. My memory of this work was a little different than what I found recently. I was disturbed by the reading this time. I don't know what the change was, my guess is that it was because I now have a family of my own.
The fact that Lewis appears to have been so prescient to my future doubts and failings on faith issues is troubling yet hopeful also.
Obviously, youth and pride probably led me to ignore much of this book in my first reading. Yet, in retrospect it seems almost uncanny that I didn't feel a little bit of déjà vu as I lived my life.
Anyway, this is a very good book. I just bought the audio, narrated by John Cleese, which I've heard is very well done. If any are interested my attempt at writing in the Lewis style of Screwtape to Wormwood is on my blog. [...]
 
An interesting look at Lewis's theology and how to transgress the daily hurdles of temptation  Mar 19, 2007
I got this book for a friend around Christmas time and he'd read it in about a week after recieving it, despite being back in the thick of things at a busy job. So I figured it was good and borrowed it and quickly read every word, including the foreword, toast, preface all that.

It's fascinating to only hear one side of a conversation, especially one that reads almost like a lecture from a parent. This parent however, would be an evil one trying to teach his child how to tempt a man away from Christ. Even if you aren't a Christian, this should give you a great insight into how Christian deals with concepts of temptation, compromise, struggles in life, etc. Because Lewis truly is an excellent writer, this is all done in a way that makes it fun to read and even funny at times, despite giving you an overwhelming sense that inevitably you'll fail in many ways...on the other hand "the Enemy" as Lewis's demon calls him is forgiving.

It's a short book, but contains a lot of great social commentary on how people perceive each other, themselves, how the school system in the US is flawed, how war effects faith...all very meaty subjects all dealt with in short bursts. It gives you a lot to think about in a 4-5 page stint, but also vividly paints the picture so you can sort it out easier.

Funny yet scary!!  Mar 12, 2007
It's funny because most of us think we're so much smarter and more progressive than the ones from the past generations. We act as if we've grown out of certain things and 'evolved' since our grandparents' time. Yet, everytime I read books from people like C.S Lewis and Watchman Nee, who were active 50-60 years ago, I realize the true wisdom come from the Lord not our schools or the cutting edge science we boast.

While reading this book, I caught myself doing exactly the same things Screwtape was instructing his newphe to get his 'patient' to do. There're so many distractions in our lives that we constantly lose our focus from the most important thing! Jesus Christ! I also loved the way Screwtape described the true prayer. It's about communicating with the Christ as who He really is not as who we want Him to be or think He should be. It's amazing to see C.S. Lewis glorify the Lord with the amazing talent that's given to him.
 
C.S. Lewis knows what is in a mans heart  Mar 10, 2007
The Screwtape Letters will make you take a good look at what you do every day, hopefully seeing the real you.
