General Description

The Screwtape Letters is an epistolary novel: Screwtape, a demon and cog in the bureaucracy of Hell, writes to his nephew, Wormwood, mentoring him in his temptation endeavors. Wormwood needs all the help he can get, so Uncle Screwtape advises him on how to distract “the Patient” (a human Christian) from God and undermine his faith. Witty, satirical, and insightful, The Screwtape Letters will not disappoint C. S. Lewis fans, or readers simply struggling to win the battle against their own inner demons.
