What a marvelous book! Lewis could grasp what most of us Christians tend to forget: the work of the devil in our lives and minds. However, he doesn't do it in a demon-obsessed way nor in a skeptical way as seen in many modern churches, but rather with a well-balanced Bible-based humour-filled writing. This book is a Christian classic and now I know why!
"The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis is an interesting book that's 209 pages long. It's a fictitious account of a senior demon writing to a junior demon about one man, the junior demon's "patient".
While I have been a fan of C.S. Lewis and his books for a sometime, believe it or not I have never read "The Screwtape Letters" until now. I have to admit that it took a little bit for me to get into the book but once I was about a quarter of the way through the book it defiantly kept my attention. Each letter is about three pages long which makes it easy to grab and read a letter if you only have a few minutes.
There were many insights I found and some things that made me pause and think long and hard about, things that hit a little too close to home.
The book is not too hard to read but remember it was written by Lewis and he was not an American living in 2012 so some of the words and sayings might not connect but the overall flavor of the book should have its impact on you.
