A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life 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. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

Quotes & Awards

  • “C.S. Lewis is the ideal persuader for the half-convinced, for the good man who would like to be a Christian but finds his intellect getting in the way.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Apparently this Oxford don and Cambridge professor is going to be around for a long time; he calls himself a dinosaur but he seems to speak to people where they are.”

    The Washington Post Book World

  • “If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels.”

    New Yorker

  • “This book is sparkling yet truly reverent, in fact a perfect joy, and should become a classic.” 

    The Guardian (London)

  • “Excellent, hard-hitting, challenging, provoking.”

    The Observer

  • “Lewis’ satire is a Christian classic…[His] take on human nature is as on-target as it was when the letters were first published in 1941.”


  • “Each letter is a masterpiece of reverse theology…If you’ve never read Lewis, The Screwtape Letters is a great place to start. And if you know Lewis, but haven’t read this, you’ve missed one of his core writings.”
