Book: The Screwtape Letters
Author: C.S. Lewis
Everyone knows that C.S. Lewis wrote Narnia, but how many people know that he wrote other books for adults?
This is one of the really really good ones. While sometimes when I read Narnia, I put it down and I'm not worried, The Screwtape Letters are absolutely entrancing. There's not really any character. Nor is there any real plot. But that doesn't matter because of the artful skilled way C.S. Lewis wrote this.
What is it about?
Demons exist. No, they aren't the little red devils with pitchforks in their hands, cackling madly. They're worse. They are politicians, unseen by us. They appear, in every sense, logical. But they aren't.
This is a collection of letters from a senior demon (affectionately known as Uncle Screwtape) to Wormwood, a junior demon assigned to this young man. Screwtape instructs Wormwood how to destroy a man's life and isolate him completely from "The Enemy" (God) through the use of cunning and twisted methods.
This book is delightfully twisted, but eerie at the same time. Once more, this will make you look at your own life with a new perspective and maybe even change it. Christians will love this -- I'm not sure about atheists.
