    It's great to read fiction that gives you a punch in a gut! It's not often a book will hold up a mirror to you and show you some things you'd rather not see. The Screwtape Letters was that book for me. Every Christian needs to get a hold of this book and read it through! It's helped...

    I love this book - it really makes you think. For those who have not read it, the book is written as a compilation of letters from a "tempter," Screwtape, to his nephew, a "junior tempter" named Wormwoood. In the letters, Screwtape gives Wormwood adivce and counsel on how to best tempt...

    If not for the fact that this is a satire in earnest, it would serve as a powerful absurdist invective against humanity itself. If this book improved my view of Christians it was only because it points out that all the faults conspicuous in the rabidly faithful are equally well-represe...

    It's always the books that I randomly come across or the spur of the moment reads that almost always end up (pleasantly) surprising me. This book was so out of my range and certainly not the kind I usually pick up but I wanted something different and wow, was it that. It was thought...

    Young Wormwood is on his very first demonic mission and is at a bit of a loss as to how to do this. There's so many ways to corrupt, but which is the right way to do evil? Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, w...

    To MR. SOURPUSS Most Revered Lower Secretary Ministry of Temptation Dear Sir, At the outset, let me express my deep regret at a set of my letters (to my wayward nephew Wormwood) having fallen into the hands of a loyal servant of the Enemy and getting published. I will take the...

    This is my first book of C.S. Lewis outside the Chronicles of Narnia Series. I want to balance my reading list with good, wholesome and inspiring Christian books so I decided to try the works of Lewis and look for an e-book. Fortunately, I was able to find one online so I started with ...

    Where do I begin unloading this colossal bag of thoughts that are raging in my mind since yesterday? Well, my friend, you seem to be the victim today. So be it. Don?t term me evil; it is just the scent of one, I lived with for the last five days. Actually, this work is hardly anyt...

    Feb 23 , 2018 I just picked this up again to read through some of my highlights. I also wanted to mention that this book is dedicated to J.R.R.Tolkien. One of the biggest literary influences dedicating his book to another one of biggest literary influences, who also happens to be h...

    I didn't particularly enjoy this book but am glad that I read it. In fact, at times the book made my skin crawl. For those who have not read it, the book is written as a bunch of letters from a tempter, Uncle Screwtape, to his nephew, a tempter in training, named Wormwoood. Screwtape t...

    Fantastic book! C. S. Lewis' first "novel" (actually Pilgrim's regress was first but it's a rather oblique allegory). It was and still is a best seller. I can recommend it to Christians and non-Christians alike. It's full of (yes I know it's a cliche, but here it's just true) "wit and ...

    Okay...so I've probably tried to read this book at least ten times over the years and never actually finished it. I started the book again this week and even tried the audio version by John Cleese on Youtube--didn't get very far as I kept thinking about Fawlty Towers, which I happened ...

    More fun and playful than I'd anticipated. As a platform upon which to discuss his beliefs and thoughts on theology, government, society and the nature of mankind in general, C.S. Lewis constructed The Screwtape Letters, an epistolary novel in the form of instructive letters from s...

    This classic was surprisingly intriguing, definitely different from Lewis' usual works with its themes of religion and satire. ...

    With infatiguable British wit and the king of unreliable narrators, C.S. Lewis harrows Hell to tell us how a demon?s mind works in The Screwtape Letters. Years ago I thought this book was about possession, but it turns out to be far more concerned with that nagging little voice in...

    Original post at One More Page Ah Screwtape. I've heard so much about this book but I never got to buy it because the print copy was just too expensive for something so thin. I remember splurging on the ebook instead a couple of months ago, but true to form, it took me a while to re...

    I loved this book! It's a collection of letters written by a senior demon (Uncle Screwtape) to his nephew, junior demon (Wormwood). Wormwood is assigned a young man to tempt and the letters turn into a kind of study on how spiritual warfare works. I've always heard that C.S. Lewis was ...

    Satire. Well, it's not for everyone, but considering that this was meant for uptight Christian prigs from 50 years ago, it's pretty good and timeless. Enter Satan, AKA Screwtape, and listen to him extolling or deriding his demon nephew on the virtues of corrupting his human charg...

    I really really like this book. It's such an interesting perspective on Christianity and CS Lewis is a phenomenal story teller! I listened to the audiobook for part of this read, narrated by John Cleese, and I would highly recommend it. He is such an amazing narrator! ...

    *slightly ashamed face and twisting of foot in the dirt* So I didn't actually finish this book. I was looking forward to reading it and it has been on my bookcrossing wishlist for a while but when it finally arrived I found that the anticipation had outweighed the the delivery of the ...

    I began The Screwtape Letters many years ago and only ever managed to begin three or so pages of it before finding the style too difficult for my younger self. It is a sign to me, therefore, of my development as an individual and reader, that I was able to sit down this afternoon and...

    3.0 stars. I was a little baffled by this book as I went into it thinking it was supposed to be humorous. Apart from a few places where I believe the author was trying to evoke a laugh, I did not come away from this thinking that the author was shooting for funny. Therefore, from that ...

    My first dip into C.S. Lewis ? I have to say I was a bit surprised. It was not what I had thought it would be. I had read the Chronicles of Narnia with my daughter. I enjoyed that. I had heard about his other writing but never felt compelled to try them. My mind has been changed. ...

    I don't know how many times I have read this, but the last time was listening to it on audio in May of 2015. Crammed with wisdom. ...

    They say that there are two types of literature: escapist (entertainment) and meaningful (life-enriching). Some books are either one of them. However, many are somewhere in between like most of C.S.Lewis works. For example, his children's book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is m...

    I have read this book twice before but after my worship pastor mentioned a quote that I had forgotten in one part of the book Wormwood writes his uncle Screwtape with great fear that his subject has begun going to church, his uncle quite easily assures him that the best thing to do is ...

    This book has probably one of the easiest premises around to understand: The senior devil, Screwtape, writes advise to a junior devil, his nephew, Wormwood. The letters are his advice to Wormwood how to prevent a human from reaching his full Christian capabilities, and to turn the huma...

    Fantastic book! C. S. Lewis' first "novel" (actually Pilgrim's regress was first but it's a rather oblique allegory). It was and still is a best seller. I can recommend it to Christians and non-Christians alike. It's full of (yes I know it's a cliche, but here it's just true) "wit and ...

    Satire. Well, it's not for everyone, but considering that this was meant for uptight Christian prigs from 50 years ago, it's pretty good and timeless. Enter Satan, AKA Screwtape, and listen to him extolling or deriding his demon nephew on the virtues of corrupting his human charg...

    My first dip into C.S. Lewis ? I have to say I was a bit surprised. It was not what I had thought it would be. I had read the Chronicles of Narnia with my daughter. I enjoyed that. I had heard about his other writing but never felt compelled to try them. My mind has been changed. ...

    Fantastic book! C. S. Lewis' first "novel" (actually Pilgrim's regress was first but it's a rather oblique allegory). It was and still is a best seller. I can recommend it to Christians and non-Christians alike. It's full of (yes I know it's a cliche, but here it's just true) "wit and ...

    Okay...so I've probably tried to read this book at least ten times over the years and never actually finished it. I started the book again this week and even tried the audio version by John Cleese on Youtube--didn't get very far as I kept thinking about Fawlty Towers, which I happened ...

    More fun and playful than I'd anticipated. As a platform upon which to discuss his beliefs and thoughts on theology, government, society and the nature of mankind in general, C.S. Lewis constructed The Screwtape Letters, an epistolary novel in the form of instructive letters from s...

    This classic was surprisingly intriguing, definitely different from Lewis' usual works with its themes of religion and satire. ...

    With infatiguable British wit and the king of unreliable narrators, C.S. Lewis harrows Hell to tell us how a demon?s mind works in The Screwtape Letters. Years ago I thought this book was about possession, but it turns out to be far more concerned with that nagging little voice in...

    I loved this book! It's a collection of letters written by a senior demon (Uncle Screwtape) to his nephew, junior demon (Wormwood). Wormwood is assigned a young man to tempt and the letters turn into a kind of study on how spiritual warfare works. I've always heard that C.S. Lewis was ...

    Satire. Well, it's not for everyone, but considering that this was meant for uptight Christian prigs from 50 years ago, it's pretty good and timeless. Enter Satan, AKA Screwtape, and listen to him extolling or deriding his demon nephew on the virtues of corrupting his human charg...

    I really really like this book. It's such an interesting perspective on Christianity and CS Lewis is a phenomenal story teller! I listened to the audiobook for part of this read, narrated by John Cleese, and I would highly recommend it. He is such an amazing narrator! ...

    *slightly ashamed face and twisting of foot in the dirt* So I didn't actually finish this book. I was looking forward to reading it and it has been on my bookcrossing wishlist for a while but when it finally arrived I found that the anticipation had outweighed the the delivery of the ...

    I began The Screwtape Letters many years ago and only ever managed to begin three or so pages of it before finding the style too difficult for my younger self. It is a sign to me, therefore, of my development as an individual and reader, that I was able to sit down this afternoon and...

    3.0 stars. I was a little baffled by this book as I went into it thinking it was supposed to be humorous. Apart from a few places where I believe the author was trying to evoke a laugh, I did not come away from this thinking that the author was shooting for funny. Therefore, from that ...

    My first dip into C.S. Lewis ? I have to say I was a bit surprised. It was not what I had thought it would be. I had read the Chronicles of Narnia with my daughter. I enjoyed that. I had heard about his other writing but never felt compelled to try them. My mind has been changed. ...

    I don't know how many times I have read this, but the last time was listening to it on audio in May of 2015. Crammed with wisdom. ...

    They say that there are two types of literature: escapist (entertainment) and meaningful (life-enriching). Some books are either one of them. However, many are somewhere in between like most of C.S.Lewis works. For example, his children's book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is m...

    I have read this book twice before but after my worship pastor mentioned a quote that I had forgotten in one part of the book Wormwood writes his uncle Screwtape with great fear that his subject has begun going to church, his uncle quite easily assures him that the best thing to do is ...

    This book has probably one of the easiest premises around to understand: The senior devil, Screwtape, writes advise to a junior devil, his nephew, Wormwood. The letters are his advice to Wormwood how to prevent a human from reaching his full Christian capabilities, and to turn the huma...

    [Listened as an audiobook from Overdrive / library] Solid insight into humans and faith. Some of it seemed more like C.S. Lewis' thoughts about education and moral and intellectual decline, BUT for the most part, it stayed on course with Screwtape telling his nephew how to get the "...

    It's great to read fiction that gives you a punch in a gut! It's not often a book will hold up a mirror to you and show you some things you'd rather not see. The Screwtape Letters was that book for me. Every Christian needs to get a hold of this book and read it through! It's helped...

    I love this book - it really makes you think. For those who have not read it, the book is written as a compilation of letters from a "tempter," Screwtape, to his nephew, a "junior tempter" named Wormwoood. In the letters, Screwtape gives Wormwood adivce and counsel on how to best tempt...

    It's always the books that I randomly come across or the spur of the moment reads that almost always end up (pleasantly) surprising me. This book was so out of my range and certainly not the kind I usually pick up but I wanted something different and wow, was it that. It was thought...

    Young Wormwood is on his very first demonic mission and is at a bit of a loss as to how to do this. There's so many ways to corrupt, but which is the right way to do evil? Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, w...

    My first dip into C.S. Lewis ? I have to say I was a bit surprised. It was not what I had thought it would be. I had read the Chronicles of Narnia with my daughter. I enjoyed that. I had heard about his other writing but never felt compelled to try them. My mind has been changed. ...

    I don't know how many times I have read this, but the last time was listening to it on audio in May of 2015. Crammed with wisdom. ...

    They say that there are two types of literature: escapist (entertainment) and meaningful (life-enriching). Some books are either one of them. However, many are somewhere in between like most of C.S.Lewis works. For example, his children's book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is m...

    I have read this book twice before but after my worship pastor mentioned a quote that I had forgotten in one part of the book Wormwood writes his uncle Screwtape with great fear that his subject has begun going to church, his uncle quite easily assures him that the best thing to do is ...

    This book has probably one of the easiest premises around to understand: The senior devil, Screwtape, writes advise to a junior devil, his nephew, Wormwood. The letters are his advice to Wormwood how to prevent a human from reaching his full Christian capabilities, and to turn the huma...

    [Listened as an audiobook from Overdrive / library] Solid insight into humans and faith. Some of it seemed more like C.S. Lewis' thoughts about education and moral and intellectual decline, BUT for the most part, it stayed on course with Screwtape telling his nephew how to get the "...

    Witty? Yes. Brilliant? Yes. Funny? Not so much. I mean, I can see how it could be funny, but it wasn't funny to me. In fact, it was downright terrifying in spots. Why? Because I saw so much of myself in this book. Complacent, distracted, and not very invested in my faith? Yeah...

    It's great to read fiction that gives you a punch in a gut! It's not often a book will hold up a mirror to you and show you some things you'd rather not see. The Screwtape Letters was that book for me. Every Christian needs to get a hold of this book and read it through! It's helped...

    I love this book - it really makes you think. For those who have not read it, the book is written as a compilation of letters from a "tempter," Screwtape, to his nephew, a "junior tempter" named Wormwoood. In the letters, Screwtape gives Wormwood adivce and counsel on how to best tempt...

    Young Wormwood is on his very first demonic mission and is at a bit of a loss as to how to do this. There's so many ways to corrupt, but which is the right way to do evil? Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, w...

    Fantastic book! C. S. Lewis' first "novel" (actually Pilgrim's regress was first but it's a rather oblique allegory). It was and still is a best seller. I can recommend it to Christians and non-Christians alike. It's full of (yes I know it's a cliche, but here it's just true) "wit and ...

    Satire. Well, it's not for everyone, but considering that this was meant for uptight Christian prigs from 50 years ago, it's pretty good and timeless. Enter Satan, AKA Screwtape, and listen to him extolling or deriding his demon nephew on the virtues of corrupting his human charg...

    Young Wormwood is on his very first demonic mission and is at a bit of a loss as to how to do this. There's so many ways to corrupt, but which is the right way to do evil? Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one--the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, w...
