|I just finished reading this book, written in 1942. It is a little difficult to read at some points because of Lewis' writting style and time period. BUT, this is a must read in my opinion and considered a masterpiece by others. It's a series of letters from a devil named Screwtape to his nephew, Wormwood, (a junior tempter) about how to woo a Christian away from God. Screwtape refers to God/Jesus as "the enemy". And Satan as "Our Father Below". "Be not deceived, Wormwood, our cause is never more in jeopardy than when a human, no longer desiring but still intending to do our Enemy's will, looks round upon a universe in which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys." Has anyone else read this?|
