9780001071773: The Screwtape Letters

On its first appearance, The Screwtape Letters was immediately recognized as a milestone in the history of popular theology and has since sold more than a quarter of a million editions. Now 60 years old, it is stunningly repackaged to launch the Signature Classics range.

A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world overwith 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, C.S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man.

Dedicated to Lewis’s friend and colleague J.R.R. Tolkien, The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation – and triumph over it – ever written.

‘The book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic.’

‘Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, provoking.’

From the Back Cover:

Clever and witty, 'The Screwtape Letters' form the correspondence from a senior member of Satan's staff to a junior 'agent in the field'.

The experienced tempter passes on lots of hints and helpful advice on the finer points of capturing souls and reprimands, congratulates and guides the novice devil towards better results with the all too fallible humans who surround him.

John Cleese, by turns irascible and cajoling, gives a masterly reading.

"an incandescent piece of work…a rare and perfect matching of voice and material. Cleese provides an amazing and quite unexpected demonstration of his range as an actor."
