I have always heard good things about this one, but I have to admit, I was surprised by how clever it was. Lewis has a way of describing all these terrible behaviors in a way that is supposed to sound "encouraging" (as one evil creature describes them to another). As I read it, however, I found myself thinking, Ugh, I totally do that and I should stop. It was so well done, and gave me so many things to think about. Glad I finally read it.

I found this book surprisingly enjoyable. By that I mean I don't consider myself a very religious person, so Christian literature isn't my usual choice. However, I found this very amusing and insightful. 4 💥💥💥💥 out of 5

Book 2 finished for #24B4Monday

Andrew65 I would try to pull together a guesstimate. Mine froze on me earlier today. 😔😬 5mo
RamsFan1963 @Andrew65 I know it was over 11 hours, so I'll just round down to that point. 5mo

“The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis entered my world, because of a friend who challenged me during a debate on religion.

This book was a beautiful, harsh reminder of what "Not God" really looks like. This came along at a wonderful time for my spiritual growth, and I have SO MANY challenging ideas to think about after reading it. I love Lewis's style, too - his clever wit combined with the truth of the human condition is just as likely to make me wince at my own actions as it is to make me laugh at how silly we can be.

Il Rumore è il solo che ci difende da stupidi rimorsi, da scrupoli disperanti, da desideri irraggiungibili.

First published in 1942. Unfortunately this is as true as when C.S. Lewis wrote it all those years ago. We are doing our best to raise our daughter & son to be wise to this.

Is it weird this is my favorite epistolary novel? Probably yes. My second favorite is Sorcery and Cecelia because I contain multitudes. #readjanuary

#JanuaryReads #Epistolary I know, I know it has the word LETTERS in the title. Pretty obvious choice. However, it was my first CS Lewis book. Read this before I read "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". Sadly, I cannot take a picture of it on my shelf because it seems I have loaned it out and it has not made its way back. So, here's a picture of the box it would be in if it had been returned.

Libby1 Excellent choice! So witty and wise. 3y

The audio version was just brought to my attention today and therefore I called the library and ordered the CD. Then I found myself not wanting to wait (1 week) so I ordered my first audio book on iBooks! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If once they get through this initial dryness successfully, they become much less dependent on emotion and therefore much harder to tempt.

A wonderful narrator makes all the difference in an audio book. Ralph Cosham was wonderful as Screwtape, a devil offering advice to his nephew Wormwood. Wormwood is in his first post as a tempter & is attempting to bring a young man in England over to the original dark side and secure his damnation. An interesting take on the fashions of thought, behavior, and dress from a devil‘s point of view. #2016readharderchallenge #bookaboutreligion

the_alternate_ending_library I collect ALL editions of Screwtape but on audio?.. I'm going now to the library 😍 Thank you!! 3y
AWahle @the_alternate_ending_library I hope you find the one with the same narrator and that you like him as much as I did! 3y

Gratitude looks to the Past and love to the Present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead.
