very entertaining and a eye opener to show how evil operates in all of our lives This is the fifth copy I have bought and never seem to get them back Friends always want someone close to them to also read the book Truly provoking very entertaining and a eye opener to show how evil operates in all of our lives This is the fifth copy I have bought and never seem to get them back Friends always want someone close to them to also read the book Truly provoking When you read other work by Lewis, you are drawn to the clarity of style and thought and the ability to untangle complex issues regarding the validity of faith now, but also historically You also enter a world where myth and fact mingle in suspicious ways, making the line between them difficult to see, suggesting that at least part of myth might be fact Then you read the Screwtape Letters and realize that it is really too bad that Lewis did not write satire Because this is wonderful satire Much of Lewis thought is integrated within this wonderful correspondence between a senior devil and a junior fiend who has the responsibility of a keeping a human away from Christianity, and when that fails b making him inert One cannot help but identify with the thinking of either the senior devil, the junior fiend or the human, at different moments The letters are filled with observations regarding the relation of thought to faith, science and faith, honesty, honor and other values traditionally associated with faith, wrapped in a style that shows the author has given much thought to the great questions of humanity, but is able to boil them down to a satirical delivery A Lewis that, regretfully, we don t get to read often enough But a wonderful, wonderful Lewis.
A classic but challenging to read because of the need to reverse your perspective from evil to good As a result i found myself really considering the nature of evil and its role in the human condition.
I have heard many positive comments of this book and I approached it, expecting it to be brilliant I have read the Lord of the Rings and I found the writings of Tolkien much easier to read and to keep engaged than this book The topics within this book are very good and offer a good insight into Christianity and the sins that humanity is plagued with however I found the first part of this book very difficult for me to keep focused on and the flow was very different for me to grasp.
I read this book for a C.
S Lewis class years ago in University This book has long lingered with me in its content and relevence over the years A mich needed reflection from a prollific writer Great author and a series of books I want to read This electronic offer is fantastic.
