It's not easy being a demon, as this classic shows.
Lewis' first work to reach the public imagination in North America was The Screwtape Letters. The literary conceit of The Screwtape Letters is that the work is supposed to be correspondence from a senior devil to a junior devil, giving advice on how best to tempt his "patient" to damnation. By this means, Lewis exposes many of the delusions and falsehoods by which we pretend to ourselves that we are much better people than we are in fact, and that our spiritual condition is much better than we should know it to be. For many, if not most readers, many of Screwtape's tricks should be disturbingly familiar. But there is hope for us, as Screwtape's student Wormwood learns to his dismay.
I highly recommend this work. If you don't have the time to read it yourself, John Cleese has recorded a surprisingly faithful talking book version. Greg Slade
