This is a poorly organized dramatization/narration
January 15, 2011
I paid full price from Focus on the Family for this product and I was extremely disappointed in the way the story is handled. Changing between the actual role playing to the devils discussions was poorly organized and extremely frequent throughout. It was quite irritating....narration
This satire is an excellent portrayal of the thought process of satan and his tactics of subtleties, self centered logic and flesh driven indulgence. The letters could be an excellent source for listening and discussion sources for Sunday School classes. This is an excellent source for following the lines of back biting, confusion and dissension. Searching out scriptures and the benefits of belonging to Christ would be great a exercise to combat the logic satan uses with Wormwood. It is also is a great source to study boundaries.
An awesome audio book! I enjoyed it immensely. I am new to C. S. Lewis and am now a fan. This book (on cds) is quite an indictment against the garden variety Christian-and, uncomfortably, you may see yourself in some of the exchanges. You have to be a fairly deep Christian, I believe, in order to see things as clearly as Mr. Lewis presents some of the ideas.Very intelligent and also some wicked fun! It's like sneaking a peek at old 'family' letters.I thought the actor, Joss Ackland, had the perfect voice for this demon and his presentation of Uncle Screwtape, to my mind, was perfect!This is great listen!
It was very refreshing to hear proper English again. The Screwtape Letters are a treasure. They are a brilliant insight into are earthly and fleshly struggles presented in the most non-threatning manner for non-believers.
WOW - what a phenomenal look at people and our failings. Joss Acklund's reading is so superb you feel you are listening to the devil, himself. It is so easy to understand and brings the devils motives and the way he works so sharply into focus. While being humorous, it is at the same time very chilling. There are huge lessons for us all. I originally got this from the library. I was so moved by it, I feel the need to own it. I will be purchasing it so I can listen to it repeatedly for as a refresher.
