About the Book

A timeless classic on “Hell’s latest novelties and Heaven’s unanswerable answer,” The Screwtape Letters has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life. C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of “Our Father Below,” the worldly-wise old devil, to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man who has just become a Christian. The Screwtape Letters is a hilarious story of temptation—and triumph over it.

C.S. Lewis’s brilliant and imaginative creations were, on publication, recognized as a milestone in the history of popular theology. Selling millions of copies worldwide, The Screwtape Letters has become a favorite of Lewis fans.
