Screwtape Letters (Annotated)
Screwtape Letters (Annotated) | C S Lewis
A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a senior tempter in the service of "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. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation and triumph over it ever written.Now, for the first time, The Screwtape Letters is presented with its full text alongside helpful annotations provided by Lewis enthusiast and dramatist Paul McCusker. The notes include literary, theological, and biographical information to enhance Lewis's core themes and demystify complex ideas. McCusker also guides readers to concepts and references from the beloved author's other treasured volumes to deepen and enrich this timeless classic. The annotated edition is the ultimate guide for understanding the heavenly truths buried in these epistles from below."

A classic satire of temptation done in letter format between the devil and one of his demon underlings. I have read this many times and it gets better with each reading.

Mommamanzi I‘ve tried reading it so many times (it‘s one of my fathers favorite books) and I can‘t make it past the first 20 pages. 2y

I don't have a photo of this book, because I "read" it via an audio library book. C. S. Lewis shows in a clever way how Satan uses the smallest thing to bring us down. Told in a series of letters from Uncle Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, Screwtape tells how to undermine the enemy (God) and keep the patient (man) from falling into the ultimate horror (Heaven). I highly recommend it!

AWahle I loved this audiobook as well! 3y

As I was reading the book I came across an ad for the play. It was a powerful performance. Now it makes me just want to finish the book even faster. C.S. Lewis is genius!

"Your business is to fix his attention on the stream. Teach him to call it “real life” and don't let him ask what he means by “real”.
