The Screwtape Letters: Letters from a Senior to a Junior Devil

By C. S. Lewis


United Kingdom



On its first appearance, The Screwtape Letters was immediately recognized as a milestone in the history of popular theology. Now 60 years old, it is stunningly repackaged and both cassette and CD.

A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world overwith 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 charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.

Dedicated to Lewis’s friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation – and triumph over it – ever written.
