Publisher's Description

The Deluxe Illustrated Edition of a Timeless Classic

First published in 1942, The Screwtape Letters has sold millions of copies world-wide and is recognized as a milestone in the history of popular theology. A masterpiece of satire, it entertains readers with 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, The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written. With beautiful color illustrations by the artist Papas throughout, this new edition also includes C. S. Lewis's own drawing of Screwtape, as well as a retrospective essay written twenty years after the original publication.

Author Bio

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over one hundred million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

Clive Staples Lewis (1898-1963) fue uno de los intelectuales más importantes del siglo veinte y podría decirse que fue el escritor cristiano más influyente de su tiempo. Fue profesor particular de literatura inglesa y miembro de la junta de gobierno en la Universidad Oxford hasta 1954, cuando fue nombrado profesor de literatura medieval y renacentista en la Universidad Cambridge, cargo que desempeñó hasta que se jubiló. Sus contribuciones a la crítica literaria, literatura infantil, literatura fantástica y teología popular le trajeron fama y aclamación a nivel internacional. C. S. Lewis escribió más de treinta libros, lo cual le permitió alcanzar una enorme audiencia, y sus obras aún atraen a miles de nuevos lectores cada año. Sus más distinguidas y populares obras incluyen Las Crónicas de Narnia, Los Cuatro Amores, Cartas del Diablo a Su Sobrino y Mero Cristianismo.

Editorial Reviews

“A mixture of wit, insight and brilliance of the kind you rarely meet.”
“I read Lewis for comfort and pleasure many years ago, and a glance into the books revives my old admiration.”
“If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels.”

    Having just bought the CD set (The Screwtape Letters) from Focus on the Family's Radio Theatre, I was actually anxious to read the book and cover some of the ground that LISTENING doesn't afford much time for. A masterwork on both page and audio. When I read the story now, I can HEAR Screwtape (brilliantly captured by actor Andy Serkis on the cd set). The illustrations are nothing shy of Inspired (okay, an odd thing to say about drawings of a DEMON, but remember, everything about this story is inverted, so my review might as well be, too. Ha,ha!) And I adore that Screwtape has to wear bi-focals! On a theological level, I find myself wanting to do the very opposite of everything this older demon is teaching his apprentice, by way of temptation. This is a good thing. I am now more keenly aware of the temptations that I've given into in the past, and wish I had both this book and the cd to help point out those devices. Thanks to Clive Staples Lewis (or Jack, as he preferred to be called) we are truly no longer Ignorant of the devil's tricks. And I know exactly who to blame the next time I come close to falling into temptation; Andy Serkis! ;)
