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 stunningly repackaged and rebranded as part of 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.

Review:

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

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

From the Back Cover:

A TIMELESS CLASSIC ON ‘HELL’S LATEST NOVELTIES AND HEAVEN’S UNANSWERABLE ANSWER’.

Screwtape is an experienced devil. His nephew Wormwood is just at the start of his demonic career, and has been assigned to secure the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian.

Their letters are one of C.S. Lewis's most brilliant imaginative creations and, on publication, were recognised as a milestone in the history of popular theology.

"The book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic".
'The Guardian'

"Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, thought-provoking".
'The Observer'
